Following a period in which the number of closures was down, they've now increased again. September saw five OC places shut up shop for good. They were:Wienerschnitzel
, Mission ViejoJaponaise Bakery
, Tustin (for Edwin's full report, CLICK HERE
)Contodo Mexican Grill
, OrangeVessia Ristorante
, IrvineYum Yum Donuts
, Costa Mesa
Reports out this week also say that consumer confidence is down, just
when things were beginning to look up. And eating at the Melting Pot
last night--I don't want to say which one--the (overworked) waitress
spilled the beans on customer numbers, saying they'd dropped so much in
recent months that the team of evening staff has now been cut in half.
All I can say is: Fingers crossed for the upcoming holiday season(s).
