Very sorry to hear this. My husband grew up in San Mateo and frequenting Lee’s was a childhood pastime. Then it became a hobby taking our 3 sons when we became parents. Then Lee’s closed here and we’ve been missing it ever since. Hester Lee, thank you for the memories!

So sad. We always would take our Philly grandson to that store as it was always on the list of things to do when he visited. We will miss those trips as part of the fun.
