Sport Chalet - Another (formerly) LA Based Retail Chain - Closes Their Doors
One of the last major retail chains once headquartered in Los Angeles - Sport Chalet - is closing - now. I have long known the DTLA store was in trouble - as are a number of other stores - and when I tried to see if there was any assistance they might need, by calling corporate, I soon figured out that the whole chain was likely to close.
So - despite the 'recovery' - LA still has a lot of work to do to rebuild its economy and its business sector but - so far - none of the things that need to be done, are even being discussed - much less acted upon. Instead, both the city and the state - and the feds - pass laws, rules, guidelines and taxes - that make it harder and harder for businesses to survive.
