Lowe’s Home Improvement Comes Through – Ponies Up $750,000 for Young Community Developers, Inc

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Union-pleasing workforce training is in the offing now that Lowe’s ponied up their long-romised three-quarters of a mil.

(Let’s hope Lowe’s, when it finally opens down on Bayshore sometime before year’s end, doesn’t get into the business of selling City workers $9,580(!) BBQ grills like that one time with Cole’s Hardware…)

Now, who’s going to spend all this corporate largess? Young Community Developers, Inc., per this recent disclosure at SFGov.

O.K., meet the YCD here, and below.

All Mission District Residents Get a 25% Discount at American Apparel in San Francisco!

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Oh, you people in the Mission District have been waiting for this. Just get some ID and something that has your name and address on it showing you live in the 94110 (or somewhere close enough to give you a colorable claim of Missionite status) and then hop on your polluting moped to get over to any of the three remaining American Apparels. Then demand your 25% discount on anything in the store until March 15, 2009

Forget the controversy, just get yourself some new clothes. Joaquin Phoenix would want you to, and plus, you’ve earned it, baby!

Just one issue remains – what to put into the empty space at 998 Valencia? How about a Starbucks? The Mission is currently under-served by Amerikkka’s favorite purveyor of caffeinated beverages. See?

Anyway, AA is open to suggestions. Think about it.
