For all of those readers interested in a perspective on this story:
You might want to "Google" "Berkeley Bowl Ban", and find a list of
reads, including the original LA story. Don't believe everything you
read. As a frequent Berkeley Bowl shopper, I LOVE shopping there,
never use their parking lot, nor get into fights, or bump cars.
Patience, respect, and diligence are necessary. I've had employees
help me find stuff I couldn't find on my own (organic dulse flakes in
small baggies - they are near the bulk spices); take special orders
(Dr. Bronners soap in gallon containers at 10% discount), and be
friendly. They have also taken back the imperfect watermelon! Don't be
quick to put down those who feed you exceptional produce!
