A Halloween store may soon find a temporary home at the former CentroMart building as the Oakley City Council has called for a special meeting of the Oakley City Council for Monday July 22.
According to the staff report, Jennifer and Ken Challberg approached city staff with a proposal to open a Halloween retail store selling Halloween-themed merchandise such as costumes, props, and decorations. They are seeking to rent the building for three-months from August 1 to November 10 at a cost of $5,000 per month and pay the utility costs.
Staff is seeking a security deposit equal to $2,500 upon execution of the lease.
In November, DG Market is expected to begin renovating the building. The staff report also cites that the Challbergs also own and operate the California 24/7 Fitness at 2515 Main Street.
