Shops and other businesses in Sunnyside history

Sunnyside like other early residential areas had plenty of shops from the beginning, including many located on corners on blocks of houses. In the midcentury era, the western end of Monterey Boulevard was a lively shopping strip, with grocery stores, butchers, coffee shops, five-and-dimes, and lots of barbershops and salons. The rise of the supermarket and the shopping mall put a dent in the life of the boulevard toward the end of the twentieth century, but today it is doing fairly well.
