That's a real shame.  When I lived in Petaluma in the early 2000's I used
to visit the Rohnert Park HSC weekly along with Weird Stuff Warehouse in
the south bay.  Moving back to the east coast made it really obvious how
special those places were.  There's nothing like either store here in the
DC area, much to my disappointment.
