Sad, but the quest for domination in L.A. is taking place in the unincorporated areas of the county. The looser regulations make it possible for them move into communities that don’t necessarily want them. Altadena, the charming community northwest of Pasadena is the next target and so far no one I know there wants them or their stores.
The community is working on getting people educated but I doubt that will change the plans of walmart to put stores there and circumvent the regulations in Pasadena and other cities that keep them from entering their community and destroying their small indy merchants and downtowns.
Like Chinatown, another unique corner of the city is facing the doom that is walmart.
