Williams-Sonoma must jump hurdles to return home
Kitchenware giant Williams-Sonoma must jump hurdles to open at original site in historic town
By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' The Sonoma City Council is taking up a measure that could determine whether cookware giant Williams-Sonoma moves forward with plans to build a store at the same site where it first opened more than half a century ago.

Chuck Williams first opened his little shop in the heart of Northern California wine country in 1956. He moved the store from Sonoma to San Francisco just two years later ' and went on to build a chain that today is worth some $3 billion.

But plans to go back to its roots in downtown Sonoma are in jeopardy as the City Council considers an ordinance that would regulate and possibly ban large chain stores from the historic downtown plaza.
