The Counter is coming to San Mateo

rednails | Oct 17, 201008:23 PM     2

It will be next to Trader Joe's on West Hillsdale, where the old Tower Records used to be. I haven't been to The Counter before, tho I did pass by the location in Palo Alto a few months ago, and the place was packed.

I have seen mixed reviews elsewhere on this board but thought I'd see what the current thinking is. The competition (Taxis, Jeffrey's) are quite different in concept, more retro and geared towards the younger set.

Is this a good thing or should I pass on it?
