Demolition Man is Here

Progression: Old walls are down at Community Health Care's new Hilltop site.

Today the sun set on the old Mr. Mac and Sam & Terry Barber Shop building along Hilltop’s Martin Luther King Jr. Way. For weeks the site of Community Health Care’s new regional site has been fenced in. Demolition Man has finally reduced the space to bricks and sticks to make way for the new campus, set to open next year.

While we’re excited for the change, we’re sad to see such pieces of Hilltop’s history in a pile of rubble. 

Community Health Care, take care of the space you’re building. Tend, water, and bring people to her. Bring some life back to our part of town.

Corporate Bevrge Fail

Can I buy a vowel? Or two? Seems Safeway ran out when designing new signs.


Friday Night Lights

Friday night E-1 ventured up 11th Street to tend a call at Hilltop Safeway.

Mr. Mac’s New Sign

Longtime Hilltop business Mr. Mac will soon be relocating to the corner of 12th and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. This week Mr. Mac installed his new sign in place of the former Cost Less Wholesale sign.

The store's new sign hangs above its new location at 1124 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

Cost Less Wholesale is the former occupant of Mr. Mac's new location.

Mr. Mac is changing locations to make way for Community Health Care’s expansion in the building where they both currently reside.

Hazelwood Road, located on the corner of 12th and Sprague in Tacoma, is teaming up with its neighbor, Sprague Avenue Carwash, to bring customers a coffee/carwash deal. Customers who purchase nine drinks from Hazelwood Road will receive a free $10 car wash from Sprague Avenue Carwash.

This sweet coffee/carwash deal is just in time for the spring sunshine.

Hazelwood Road has a wide selection of coffees, other beverages, and baked goods.

Sprague Avenue Carwash offers an automatic carwash and wash-it-yourself stalls.

Hazelwood Road is one of our favorite places to get a quick coffee. They use Dillanos brand coffee and have cheerful baristas. Their hot drinks warm us up during the chilly winter and their iced coffees are perfect for warmer days. They have many flavors and offer a punch card customers can use toward free drinks.

Sprague Avenue Carwash is convenient to use and offers many car wash aids, including air fresheners, rags, interior care products, tire care products, and more. It also has large vacuums customers can use after the wash.

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Oopsie. One of Hilltop Safeway’s new windows has been broken. Store regulars have taken notice and have been asking about it since it happened yesterday evening.

The front window at Hilltop Safeway has been temporarily fixed with plywood.

According to one of the store’s cashiers, two females got into an altercation just inside the store and one of them had her head smashed into the window. A shattering of glass and pride ensued. The store has patched up the space until a new piece of glass can be installed.

Safeway, located at 1112 S. M Street, underwent major renovations in early 2010 and celebrated its Grand Re-Opening in June. It now has a steady stream of customers from the Hilltop area and beyond. 

Stop on in. Safeway is a lively place with happy people from many different backgrounds. Its employees are helpful and fun.
