I walked by FX Enterprises, the company that sells car rims and noticed an empty building. The owner mentioned they are moving around the corner on Vineland due to a doubling of their rent. So sad to watch, one by one shops leaving the area only replaced with empty places with darkened windows. Just as Anne's Thriftshop had to depart along with other boutiques, thrift shops and restaurants.
I believe with Hamburger Hamlet, Anne's Thrift Shop, The Rainforest Cafe, a Ramen Noodle place that was suppose to open last Summer, BTW, whatever happened to this one and of course now the Quizno's on Lankershim. Businesses are leaving faster than ever! Very disheartening.
