The San Gabriel City Council has approved plans for a large retail store proposed by developers who had a project at the same address rejected a year ago. The design for the San Gabriel Discount Superstore calls for a 108,000-square-foot retail store and supermarket to be built at 1635 S. San Gabriel Blvd., the former site of a Target store.

At the Go Go Cafe, upstairs from the Islamic Chinese restaurant, they serve a drink suggestively named for an amply endowed Hong Kong movie actress. Those with less racy palates can wash down their smoked salmon fried rice with iced Ovaltine.

San Gabriel used to be one of the leafier spots in the San Gabriel Valley, said the dismayed Meredith.
