No Tears for Closed Markets

February 16, 1986

I would like to comment on Los Angeles Councilman Mike Woo's announcement that two supermarkets were closing their doors in Hollywood (Times, Feb. 6). I believe these two closings are insignificant as well as warranted. Hollywood is overly saturated with major supermarkets. On my way home from work (West Hollywood to just east of downtown Hollywood) I could stop in a different market every night of the week (with choices left over). Several markets throughout Hollywood have modernized and renovated within the last few years, but certain markets just weren't popular with families and yuppie types who make major purchases. The two markets that are closing were quite unpopular. I avoided these markets and no one I know patronized them either. The clientele were seedy and the prices lofty.
