Encino Will Eat CVS Alive

New, 18 comments

The Los Angeles Times covers the fracas over the departure of Barnes & Noble and the arrival of CVS at an Encino mini-mall. As previously covered, landlord Rick Caruso and Barnes & Noble couldn't come to an agreement on the topic of rent, so the bookstore, which had been getting a lowered rent, bolted. Now residents are taking their rage out on the drugstore. The latest: "Earlier this week, residents filed a complaint with the Los Angeles city attorney's office, citing procedural violations related to CVS' application for a conditional-use permit. They are requesting that the appeal period for issuance of the permit be reopened." [LAT]
