Out with the old, in with the new…

Sorry to break any hearts out there, but you can no longer obtain finger-lickin’ fried goodness at the KFC on E Street in Hayward. It appears to have shut its doors for good.

If it’s sugary goodness you want, however, you can now head over to the new Yogurt Sugar Shack (& Deli?) on the corner of Foothill and B. Here’s the difference between the Sugar Shack and Zuckersuss.

    Its sad to see KFC closed. I used to go there alot after school.

    I dont plan on going to Yogurt Sugar Shack though. I have been going to Zuckersuss since it first opened. Zuckersuss fro-yo is the best. The people there are cool and friendly. The owner is cool too. I’m at Zuckersuss usally once or twice a week.

    I love Zuckersuss too, Alex. I read the Yelp review on the Sugar Shack, but I still think it’s kind of mean of them to set up shop so close to another new business. I can think of a zillion other things to put in that space that downtown Hayward could actually use.

    Update: Just noticed today that a hydroponics shop has opened next to the new Hayward Bicycles (formerly Cyclepath).

    I think ARBYs closed down too..

  • teachermama

    So, now we have two bike shops practically right next to each other, too? Plus there is Witt’s on Mission.

    Let’s talk about something of merit for the Future and not longing for the past…
    The Downtown post office may be closing to save the agency money. This plays right into what Hayward needs; to use that land and adjoining open parking lot to BUILD a new Multi-story Library right next to the public parking garage. Maybe even installing a connecting walk bridge from the parking structure too.
    Lets move on this opportunity and secure that land for Hayward’s need for a new library.

    TheVoice puts forward a new thought. Good!

    The downtown P.O may not close. First, it was not on the initial list of Closures.

    Seconddly,it would be a shame to deny downtown business the convenience of that location where a goodly amount of drop offoccurs and delivery emanates.

    Third, the main P.O. om Santa Clara opposite the Park, near Winton Ave, has a very limited parking lot and would plavce a burden on those who need the extensice availability of P.O. Boxes and Those many individuals who send packages ‘home’ and which packages ,must be weighed etc. The lines here are consistently long and the wait line is uncomfortable. Sale of Postafe stamps by vending ,machine has been discontinued. Why?

    The P.O makes one hell of an error when it supplies a delivery truck to each of it’s carriers. That is a huge cost in maintenance expense as well as capotal expense.

    In the good old days, after being ‘cased’ the mail was delivered to Boxes scattered along the various routes where carriers could conveniently pick up the next bagful for delivery.

    Finally, the downtown P.O. is reputed to be an historical structure, built as i RECALOL THE TALE, AS ‘MAKE JOBS EGFFORT’ by the “works Project Administration ( WPA) during the Depression era.

    If the Post Office administration is losing money, perhaps it is because 1.) They are pricing themselves out of the business when competing with E-mail.

    Then too, not everyone has a computer or the skills to use it properly if they do. Internet connection is also costly and not as convenient to those with less than one might think.

    The delivery routes for flat land dwelling occupants are long, while the hillside delivery boxes arfe more commonly located at or near the curb. I’d suggest that P>O> lighten the load for carriers by installing clusters of sturdy curbside post boxes for incoming and outgoing customers. It would save carriers one hell of a lot of walking from sidewalk to residential mail boxes, amny of which are at the top of three or four stairs. Going to the corner to pick up your own mail will save much labor in the delivery process.

    Reductio0n of staff with efrfective delivery will perhaps see a reduction in operational costs. dELIVERY OF ‘BOXES’ OR FAT ENVELOPES WILL REQUIRE A CORNER STAND OF PRIVATE MAIL BOXES TO BE CAPABLE OF RFECEVING SIGNIFICANT CAPPACITY IN TERMS OF MAGAZINES AND JUNK MAIL WHICH APPARENTLY THE P.O.ADMINISTRATION HAS ENCOURAGED. rAISE THE DELIVERY COSTS OF ‘JUNK MAIL AND SMALL SALE CATALOGS WHICH “dEPARTMENT sTORES ARE NOW UTILIZING….We in this houasehold PERSONALLY GET ENOUGH OF THAT ‘ad mail trash’ which duplicate much of waht is delivered with the newspapers.

    There you have it. Reduce the numbers of deivery trucks, spot cased mail in boxes near the carriers route if you must maintain a large staff for purposes of mainytaing employment levels. But in all sinserity, walking to the coener stand of delivery boxes, should I think, make neighbors a bit more communicative with each other.

    Finally, limit the size of boxes delivered by the post office. They are competing with UPS and that upstart FedEx so that the ‘PrincipLe of diminishing returns affects the delivery biz.

    Thanks for providing this opportunity to point to another resolution of problems in HAYWARD!

    WE NEED TO REDUCE THE REDUNDENT NUMBER OF DELIVERY TRUCKS.tHEY CONTRIBUTE A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF POLLUTION TO THE AIR WE BREATHE. RIGHT?
