Seeing vacant storefronts is nothing new along San Mateo Avenue.
So it is no surprise when a business closes there and nothing replaces it for a while.
That has been the case with Straw Hat Pizza, which shut down more than a year ago.
But what happened?
I was able to find out a little more information from the real estate company in charge of selling the property.
Apparently, the owner of the pizza place decided to close the business because he had to go back to the Philippines to take care of a family member, according to an agent who works for Prudential San Bruno.
What, if anything, do you think should replace the business?
Location: 495 San Mateo Ave.
