0nly 99 Cents Buys W. Oakland Condos

We can hear Alice Waters's wails the whole way across the bay: Much to the chagrin of community officials, a 99 Cents Only store opens today on the ground level of the Mandela Gateway development in West Oakland. The retailer occupies the future entrance to Mandela Food Cooperative, set to open in April; co-op folks are hoping that buyers purchase only toilet paper and such before coming toward the organic light. We'll see.
