Two other retailers have already left the new shopping plaza.

Manya Jewelers in Canoga Park, CA lost $135,000 in merchandise after the store was plundered by two burglars who brandished a gun, the Los Angeles Daily News reports. The article says the robbery wasn’t part of a trend, though the incident does add to the troubles the open-air plaza has had since the ribbon was cut in September. Two retail tenants have already left the mall, and the landlord recently implemented paid parking without notifying merchants or visitors, who also had trouble operating the pay stations.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
