The Clotheshorse Congregation

March 09, 1989|Clipboard researched by Susan Davis Greene / Los Angeles Times; Graphics by Doris Shields / Los Angeles Times

If the county clotheshorses seem to congregate in Costa Mesa, there's good reason. The city is home to more apparel shops* than any other town in the county. The city also has the lowest number of residents per store, 321. At the other end of the scale, Stanton has a shop for about every 4,700 residents. Here's the city-by-city rundown, ranked by residents per store, from least to most, followed by a comparison of Orange to the four contiguous counties:

Apparel Residents Per City Stores Store Costa Mesa 286 321 Laguna Beach 65 373 Newport Beach 186 374 Westminster 155 476 Brea 61 536 Orange 167 628 Buena Park 84 788 Santa Ana 234 989 Tustin 43 1,064 San Clemente 31 1,210 La Habra 39 1,251 Los Alamitos 9 1,344 Seal Beach 19 1,439 Huntington Beach 123 1,526 Cypress 28 1,546 San Juan Capistrano 15 1,627 Garden Grove 80 1,679 Anaheim 122 1,992 Fullerton 51 2,169 Irvine 42 2,331 Yorba Linda 17 2,709 Placentia 15 2,740 Fountain Valley 18 3,094 Stanton 6 4,717 COUNTY COMPARISON Los Angeles 8,781 974 San Diego 2,306 1,009 Orange 2,013 1,112 Riverside 704 1,344 San Bernardino 730 1,699
