A new sandwich shop is stirring up controversy in Vallejo, not because of its food, but because of its bulletproof glass.
The new Subway opened its doors on Virginia Street in downtown Vallejo last week.
Some customers do not like the ceiling-high glass, and the building manager says he feels it brings negative attention to the area.
“I think it sends the wrong message to the community about this community,” said Savanna Selkowitz, who refurbished the building. “You want to have a good relationship with the patrons. And I think it’s overkill. I think that, perhaps, they didn’t know what kind of neighborhood they were moving into."
But the owners, who run another Subway in the city, say that shop has been robbed three times and the glass is there for workers' safety.
The owners say the glass can be removed if it's not needed.
