Not sure if you heard, but Little Tokyo on Augusta is closing May 24th and everything's 20% off. They have loads of authentic Japanese grocery and gift items and it's the cheapest in the city right now.

      That is sad! I learned how to roll maki by watching a demonstration there once years ago. I'll stop in to see.

      Talked to the owner who said that the landlord was trying to squeeze more rent out of him. He's going to clear his stock, regroup, and decide his next step. Great store and yes, it will be missed.

        Gee that's too bad - that is a funky little store. I am surprised it is closing because it always was busy when I was in.
