Week in Review

Downtown goodbyes (and good buys) – Union War Surplus is closing, according to its website. Thursday’s Daily Breeze reported that a sale is underway, the legendary owner is retiring and the store’s fate is unknown. In addition, Starbucks at the Centre Street Lofts is closing at some unspecified time in the near future.

More press for parking meter mess – Even as “Janice Hahn eases San Pedro parking meter rules,” many business owners remain indignant.

Ponte Vista open letter – The developer ran a full-page open letter in Monday’s Daily Breeze, also posted on its website.

I am so sad to see Union Surplus store close down. It has been there forever after all.

But Starbucks, I have to be honest, I am not too heartbroken because I swore I would never set foot in there because there is an independent coffee shop up the street. But then again it makes me sad that the stores in downtown san pedro are suffering.
