I knew Sears at San Antonio was closing, and I had heard that some of other other stores would close as well, but I didn't know it would be this soon. I drove by last night, and was shocked to see the Burger King empty and the sign taken down. I never had a chance to say goodbye.
That Burger King was way more special then it looked. They had these really nice 49ers murals that celebrated the team through the decades, and they had the coolest display case with Burger King Kids Meal toys and promotions from the last 20 years. Remember "Where's Herb?"
The managers and employees did a good job - orders were right, the place was clean (though of course it was dated looking, which was part of the charm). They always had crowns set out for the kids. I also think that some of the employees were disabled (and terrific) people. I really hope they all found other jobs.
If you worked there and you read this, please know that there were people out there that appreciated the hard work you did.
