Multiple factors play into Brad Davis’ approaching retirement and the closure of his Los Altos mainstay House of Treasures in June, but he called recent, serious issues with his eyesight the final “wake-up call.”

“I made the decision a couple of months ago,” Davis said in a phone call with the Town Crier, initiated during one of his slower periods of the day. “I had some vision problems and it scared me. … Things went blurry, I had double vision. … Everything’s OK now.”
