Discovery Shop is a wonderful asset to the Community and I hope it will continue to reside right where it is for many years to come. It would be a terrible shame if Discovery Shop had to close because the real estate market is so hot and the property owners want to demolish the old tried and true for more housing or a hotel establishment. I hope the people of Menlo Park and the surrounding areas continue to support the Discovery Shop and all the non-profit stores trying hard to survive this hostile real estate climate. Let's keep these wonderful stores right where they are. They help so many people. It would be such a loss to see them disappear.
