Here's the newsletter Weirdstuff sent to all their subscribers:
WeirdStuff Warehouse Newsletter

April 6, 2018

To Weirdstuff Customers,

Sadly, after 32 years in business, Weirdstuff Warehouse will be closing
its doors as of April 9, 2018. If you have been following the real
estate news for Sunnyvale you know that Google purchased a large amount
of real estate in the area including the building we have been leasing
for the past 22 years. We have been asked to vacate the building as
soon as possible, and in order to accomplish that task we are selling
our inventory and many of our assets to Outback Equipment of Morgan
Hill. The transfer of inventory and assets will take place on April 9,
2018; at that time Weirdstuff Warehouse will cease to do business.

Even though Weirdstuff is closing we will retain ownership of the
Corporation, trademark, and domain names. We hope to handle these
entities and wind down the corporation before year end.

Many of you have been loyal customers for many years, and we have
enjoyed working with you. We thank you for your loyalty and business.

For more information, check out our website after Monday, April 9, 2018.

I spent most of yesterday (Friday) hanging out at Weirdstuff. NBC News
interviewed WS management and myself about the closing. NBC showed up
because of the "trend" of Bay Area tweets about the closure. Needless
to say, the WS store was packed with sad faces about the closing. Not
one good word about Google, who is buying up all the land they can and
wiping out small businesses with disregard.
