San Leandro: Say Goodbye To The Eddie Bauer Outlet

Outdoor and adventure clothing store in Marina Square has closed.


The Eddie Bauer Outlet Store at the Marina Square Shopping Center has closed.

A sign on the door of the dark and empty retail space urges patrons to visit the company's stores in Stonestown, San Francisco, Vacaville and Gilroy.

If you shopped at this store, why do you think it closed? Do you regularly patronize Marina Square? What would make a good replacement? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.

Eddie Bauer... See ya... Don't let the door hit you in the ass ...

Parking is just awful at Marina Square. It doesn't seem to matter what day of the week or weekend you go, or what time of day you go, I always find myself making several laps trying to get a spot that's remotely near the store I want to go to. The hassle of the bad parking is really what's kept me from shopping there more & checking out the new Guess & Converse stores, and even the Nike store that's been there for awhile I haven't bothered with because of the parking.

Wow Larry. Sure Eddie Bauer puts their logo on some of their products, but comparing them to Victoria's Secert PINK is a bit much. No Eddie Bauer clothing has writing on the butt or plastered everywhere on a shirt. A small logo on select jackets, and graphic t-shirts, and a logo sweatshirt during the holidays. There are more non-logo options than not. Calm down. Every sporting good company puts a logo on their product, and most clothing stores do as well. Eddie Bauer is one of the least offensive companies that does so.

I shopped at this Eddie Bauer outlet every fall/winter for gifts for brothers back east. Great products, good prices, and I'm sorry they left. As for the logo tirade above, get over yourself. As Leigh points out, they were probably better than most, not worse. I've gotten plenty of good quality items there with no logos whatsoever. And as for the parking at Marina Square, there's always plenty of parking at the ends of the rows and around the perimeter. Marina Square is NOT that big, and I'm over 60 and make the walk all the time -- it takes like 2 minutes. The stores there are great, and San Leandro is lucky to have so many shopping options between Marina Square and Bayfair. I'm wondering if they will open up at the new outlet mall in Livermore, hence the decision to leave San Leandro.

Larry Smith and other like online participants: calm down, control your impulses, etc. I agree with Leigh, the comment aimed at women and teens had very little, if anything, to do with corporate logos. His aim lies in an entirely different direction. He's seems to be weirdly concerned about provocatively dressed women and women's fashion trends. Such folks love to campaign against women, without taking into account that no, we don't live in Saudia Arabia, so get over it and keep your hands and your personal comments to yourself. Are you going to tell us online when you have to go to the bathroom, too?
Fred Eiger February 01, 2013 at 06:31 AM
Larry is correct. The majority of women in the Bay Area are slobs who take NO pride whatsoever in their appearance. It doesn't matter if it's San Leandro, Union Square, Palo Alto, Walnut Creek, the women dress like cleaning ladies. You'd have to travel to Orange County before you see females dressing in any way shape or form attractively.
Michelle Lang February 01, 2013 at 10:28 PM
Funny Fred, the same could be said about the majority of men in the Bay Area.
Lisa February 02, 2013 at 01:23 AM
Haha...I see way too many men in SL and beyond in "mom" jeans, cruddy worn out sandals and dragon toenails...oh and your too long gray hair, gross.
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 04:35 AM
Fred not attracted to women? Who'd a thunk it?
Fred Eiger February 02, 2013 at 02:48 PM
I wouldn't kiss you Leah, on a dare. Down at Guido's, we are still waiting for you to stroll on in visit with us We'd love to have your company. What's the matter Leah? Did I hit a little too close to home in describing the haggard, jeans, sweatshirt, and inkempt hair look? Too many women in the Bay Area avoid a Beauty Salon like it was Dracula.
David February 02, 2013 at 03:04 PM
And yet down the block we have 4 hair/nail salons all across from each other on the street. Weird. It's almost as if the businesses might not be all they seem.
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 05:57 PM
Fred's not attracted to me? Not even on a dare? My loss, certainly.
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 06:01 PM
Feminist Humor ;-) Women are like tea bags, you never know how strong they are until they are in HOT water. Don't imagine you can change a man - unless he is in diapers. What do you if your boyfriend walks out? You shut the door. If they can send a man to the moon - why can't they send them all? Never let your man's mind wander - it's too little to be out alone. Go for younger men. You might as well - they never mature anyway. Definition of a bachelor; a man who has missed the opportunity to make some woman miserable. Women don't make fools of men - most of them are the do-it-yourself types. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener. If you want a committed man, look in the mental hospital The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years. Even in biblical times, men wouldn;t ask for directions. Sadly, all men are created equal http://www.angelfire.com/ar/arawelo/jokes.html

David, most of those nail salon's are part of a Federal Small Business Loan Program for minority owned businesses. There's very little private capital at risk there. It's not just the low class women who live in Broadmoor, Alameda, Rockridge, Berkeley who dress sloppily, but the high class dames up in Lafayette, Danville and Ruby Hill. It's as though all these women want to look like a cross between a man and some migrant farm worker.
Fred Eiger February 02, 2013 at 06:13 PM
Those are "men" Lisa, they're trans-metro sexuals who run at the sound of car backfiring.
Fred Eiger February 02, 2013 at 06:14 PM
Leah is a mysoginist? ha ha, like we didn't already know she hated men.
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 06:29 PM
"Leah is a mysoginist? ha ha, like we didn't already know she hated men." -Fred Eiger, 2/2/2013 If Fred would like to call me names on Patch, for the love of GAWD he should try to use the correct terminology. ;-)
David February 02, 2013 at 07:23 PM
Given Leah's propensity to attempt to insult men by feminizing them, one could argue misogynist is a correct description. Of course, she's proven herself a misandrist also, so in sum, she's a misanthrope.
David February 02, 2013 at 07:25 PM
I just assume they're money laundering operations. Seriously there's never anyone in them. Ever.
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 07:43 PM
Remedial reading for David, Fred, & Larry : ) "Women don't make fools of men - most of them are the do-it-yourself types."
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 07:49 PM
I think both went off the deep on on this string. calling it a day.
David February 02, 2013 at 10:00 PM
I'm not the one posting up "feminist" jokes, Leah. But you're right, you should probably quit while you're behind.
Leah Hall February 02, 2013 at 11:32 PM
To clarifiy for David & Friends: Calling it a day - the woman's work is done. ;-)
David February 03, 2013 at 12:15 AM
Remember, ladies, it's not just Fred reminding you to wear make up and nice clothes, it's Barack's Federal Government: http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2013/02/01/fashion-advice-at-the-dia-makeup-makes-you-more-attractive ... Defense Intelligence Agency employees got a different message. "Makeup makes you more attractive." "Don't be a plain Jane." "A sweater with a skirt is better than a sweater with slacks." "No flats." "Paint your nails." "Don't be afraid of color." And, "brunettes have more leeway with vibrant colors than blondes or redheads." They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, women in government would be told how to dress...and they were right!
Fred Eiger February 03, 2013 at 01:29 AM
No, Leah, I just had some things to do; like mow the yard, wash the Buick and then enjoy the dinner my wife cooked.
Fred Eiger February 03, 2013 at 01:30 AM
Someone needs to tell MIchelle Obama that those tight jeans on the huge butt are not attractive.
Leah Hall February 03, 2013 at 06:52 PM
Fred has got to be kidding, I feel Michelle Obama is the hottest first lady in my lifetime. as if that is important. She's like the poster child for the fashion industry. I like what is on the inside even more. The entire first family is gorgeous. :-)
Leah Hall February 03, 2013 at 06:55 PM
And by the way: I have heard that Obama is probably going to be perceived as the "liberal Reagan" in terms of impact.
David February 03, 2013 at 06:56 PM
"Hottest first lady in your lifetime" is like being the tallest midget, Leah.
David February 03, 2013 at 06:59 PM
I have a feeling it'll be more like the "liberal Hoover" or just plain old, "well, he gives Jimmy Carter a run for the worst ever"
