A little too relaxed

A store named Relax the Back opened in Rancho Cucamonga probably two years ago; I received a press release about it, thought it sounded interesting and jotted down the address on Foothill Boulevard. I did an Internet search to figure out precisely where, Foothill being a loooong street; the store, one of a chain, was in the Foothill Crossings center at Interstate 15, near Sears Grand.

For the next two years, I would periodically remember that I wanted to see what the store sold, yours truly being perpetually tight-shouldered from hunching over a keyboard most of the time. But I rarely go to the Victoria Gardens area, and when I do, it’s usually on a tight schedule. Or the store’s existence wouldn’t cross my mind.

Finally, today, on a day off, I set out on a mission. I drove to the VG for some shopping and then, at last, went across the street to check out Relax the Back.

After some driving around, I found the store. It’s empty. It’s closed for good.

Serves me right for taking such a relaxed approach to the whole thing.

    Speaking of relaxed approach . . . on my way to your blog tonight I clicked first to the Daily Bulletin’s home page. Top center on the page, under “Breaking News,” was “Book Club Meeting at San Bernardino Museum.”

    All this is very fine but KCAL9 reports that Farrell’s is making a comeback into CA…. somehow this may redeem this situation.
