HOWS Shutting Down All But 1 of Remaining Stores
It's a tough time to be running an upscale grocery chain in Los Angeles. Economic troubles have pushed the operators of HOWS to shut down all but one of their stores, reports the LA Times. The flagship Granada Hills location is selling off their stock, Torrance has been sold off, Malibu is gearing up to shut down, and North Hollywood closed months ago (and is still vacant). Only the Pasadena location will remain in operation.
