PLEASANT HILL — Despite reservations, city leaders on Monday unanimously approved plans for a CarMax Auto Superstore that will pump millions of dollars into a blighted commercial property near Diablo Valley College that has struggled to attract new tenants. The first phase of the $29 million CarMax project includes an 18,824-square-foot building with offices, a car wash, presentation area and service center; a 4,000-gallon underground fuel storage tank; and a nearly 2.3-acre lighted vehicle display lot.
NORTON — An advertising ploy by a local car wash that was intended to be humorous backfired this week when at least one resident took issue with a sign advertising free prostate exams with every car wash. A readerboard sign advertising the preventative health care check outside of LJ’s Car Wash and Detail Center off of Old Colony Road in Norton was a joke meant to turn heads and draw more business to the shop, manager Joel Shapiro said. I asked him to explain why it was funny and he didn’t have anything to say,” Spencer said.
