Alameda: Pagano's hardware store prepares for move, begins sale
The building that houses the store was built in 1898 and was once a place that sold coal and ice. Fertilizer was later sold at the spot before original owner Andy Pagano opened the hardware store in the 1950s.
Along with floating berths for up to 12 ferries, the facility planned by the Water Emergency Transit Authority will have a 6,700-square-foot building that will house engineering and other workshops, as well as a 1,200-square-foot yard. About 70 people are expected to work at the four-acre site near the USS Hornet Museum.
The man, 44, was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant and was in possession of suspected stolen property, police said. He was also allegedly in violation of his probation. The 36-year-old woman was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant for failing to make a court date.
The free event will take place at the Crab Cove picnic area at Robert Crown Memorial State Beach, 1252 McKay Ave. Preregistration is not required.
