A widespread power outage closed businesses just as they were about to open Sunday morning in much of northeast Pleasanton and farther east along the I-580 corridor in Livermore.
The outage occurred shortly after 8 a.m. and lasted for nearly two hours.
Rose Pavilion wsa shuttered, including CVS Drug Store and Ranch 99 Market as well as Trader Joe's and McDonald's across Santa Rita Road. Costco in Livermore also was affected, with its gasoline retail outlet closed and the store expected to open once power was restored.
PG&E said crews restored power before 10 a.m. after repairing damage in a substation that serves the area.
