Oh, No. Say it Ain't So. Down and Out in Beverly Hills

By
Real Estate Agent with Power Brokers Int'l BRE# 01439865

Picture this:

You are walking down Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.  The sun is beating down.  

Double Take

It is a wonderfully comfortable 75 degrees.  You are window shopping at Gucci, Louis Vuitton,  Cartier, Bijan (you can only window show there because you need an appointment to actually shop).  You pass a Bugatti parked at a meter......

You pass...... hang on, (picture Wiley Coyote double-take) 99 Cents Only Store.

Yep, 99 Cents Only Store is looking for a piece of real estate on Rodeo Drive.  Apparently local residents have been begging for one since they have to drive a mile to the nearest one on Fairfax. 

Are we sure they weren't begging for a $99 only store?

Buying or Selling Los Angeles Real Estate

Buying or selling a Los Angeles home can be a daunting process in a city this size, especially if you’re new to L.A. Town. You’ll need a resident expert to show you around and help you narrow down the areas where you might like to live. I will help you find the perfect home in the right area to fit your lifestyle, budget and needs!

When I list and sell Los Angeles homes for my clients I strive to make the experience a pleasant one. My mission is to provide outstanding service while utilizing the best practices and systems available.

If you are an absentee owner, you’ll need someone to handle all the details that you can’t handle remotely. That’s where I come in – I’m there when you can’t be. I also specialize in lease property in Los Angeles.

Westside Los Angeles Real Estate, including, but not limited to:

For more information on how I can best serve your Los Angeles real estate needs, don’t hesitate to fill out the contact form or give me a call at 310-473-6919.

Ha ha. The place will probably be jammed if it gets approved. Wonder what the neighboring businesses will think. Is there a Home Depot? Best Buy? Costco?

Hi Jane, that does seem out of place doesn't it. I like Patricia's line of thinking! Everyone needs disposable glasses and dollar store ones are better than those awful plastic wine glasses. LOL!!

Let us know if they succeed, Jane ... and who will allow themselves to be seen going in and out of the store.  Appearances you know??

A 99 cent store on Rodeo Drive? What an irony! What will be hysterical is when a Bugatti parks outside one and someone (maybe you, Jane) snaps a photo of it!

Pat,  thank you very much.

Gayle, it is the Beverly Hills housewives who have been asking for this...

Kathy,  watch out, it's coming :)

Richard,  that is one of the points :)

Dorie,  we will soon find out.

Jeff,  nope.  None of the above.

Michelle,  there you go.

Gene,  you should see the classy cars in some of the 99 cent stores.

Janis,  yes indeed.

Sharon,  I am waiting :)

I've never heard of a Bugatti but, if I had, I probably wouldn't have any need for a 99 cent store. They're probably in it for the sake of having the experience.

Jill,  I think it is a great PR stunt.  And at $1.25M I doubt you would be in the market for a Bugatti :)

Hi Jane, This is wonderful and had a good laugh. As long as the 99 cent store sells only the couture brands, it will fit in fine but it does challenge one to find the inventory, LOL

Oh my gosh, that is crazy.  That would be so out of place there.  This is such a funny post, Jane.

Jane - I am guessing the 99 cent store may have to raise their prices a bit - to like $1.50 - to be able to pay the lease payments in that neighborhood.  thanks to Pat for her recommendation.

That's so funny, but it makes cents sense.  People with lots of money like to spend it wisely, or so I always thought.
