The store occupies the former Paul Frank space on the corner of Crescent Heights, and sells wildly overpriced hoodies. [Blackburn and Sweetzer/CurbedWire Inbox]

OAK PARK - It seems like Tesco will leave no stone unturned, no shopping center unfilled. Oak Park is the latest neighborhood to possibly get a Tesco/Fresh & Easy. The site used to house a Ralph's but has been vacant for 5 years. According to the Acorn, Tesco's opening a 15,000 sq foot, and will share the shopping center with "Treasured Memories, a scrapbook store, and Wells Fargo Bank. Cisco's Mexican restaurant will take the former Rustlers space." Obviously, the Conejo Valley is where is its at these days. [The Acorn/CurbedWire Inbox]
