A 50-year community staple is closing. Clarendon Food Mart, at 4183 N Clarendon, is family-owned and has served Buena Park residents well for decades.
The business has been sold to a new owner, who will most likely modernize and put its own touches on the place. There will be a brief shutdown during the transition.
But it's a sad day for many who have gotten to know the folks there. Stop by and say goodbye if you have a chance, and if "the lights are on."
