Williams-Sonoma wants to go Home

There's opposition to cookware giant Williams-Sonoma from opening a store in the town where it all began. The first store was opened on Broadway in Sonoma, California in 1956. The plan for a store on the original location comes as the Sonoma City Council decides new regulations for chain stores. The council may call for a moratorium on chain stores until a stronger ordinance is drafted to outlaw them. The mayor opposes chain-store regulations and says it will be a great loss to bar one of the most successful businesses in the United States from coming home.
