Forgetting to take off their shoes...

Angelenic picked up a tip that the new Little Tokyo Shopping Center owners are another step closer to changing the character of the mall:
Jason Kim of Coldwell Banker tells angelenic that Korean grocer H Mart is lined up to replace Mitsuwa Marketplace, a 40,000 square-foot Japanese grocery that’s something of an anchor for Little Tokyo. Though the deal has not been finalized, Kim explains negotiations are in advanced stages and the switch could happen as early as next year.
Sounds pretty final to me. This is really beginning to get uncomfortable, and the chances that the owners are open to talking to the community are getting slim. Not cool.
