After visiting Southland Mall on Monday, Hayward resident Margie Nagel wrote to us with the following observation:

This may seem trivial to some, but the City of Hayward needs to be made aware of this situation: While shopping for a bathing suit at the Southland Macy’s today I was informed that I would have to go to the NewPark Mall Macy’s or the Stoneridge Macy’s to purchase one, as Southland Macy’s does not stock bathing suits anymore.

Apparently, the women of the city of Hayward do not swim.
