Long-Time Buena Park Mom & Pop Food Mart Closing Its Doors

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.

But the owner says it's time to sell, and this is the last weekend, although it's a fluid situation. Friday was the last day for the long-time employees, but the owner will keep the doors open a few hours a day. "If you see the lights on, come on in!"

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."
