The cowboy store Golden Gate Western Wear is closing their Pleasant Hill store at the end of November or beginning of December. The sign advertises up to 70% off so stop by if you’re looking for a pair of cowboy boots or hat. If you can’t make it there in time, their Richmond store on San Pablo Ave. is still open.
