RetailWatch: Chain Ban in Malibu

New, 4 comments

The Malibu Planning Commission rejected an ordinance that would have limited chain stores in the beach town's civic center, surprising even themselves. "The commission's vote marked an about face from earlier in the meeting, when the commission briefly considered a proposal by commissioner John Mazza to not only give its approval of the ordinance, but recommend the addition of the Point Dume Plaza and Trancas Country Market shopping centers to the ordinance." They said the matter needs further study. [Santa Monica Daily Press]
