Trimana Expands Into Santa Monica

With locations peppered across Southern California, popular office lunch spot Trimana is expanding into Santa Monica.  You may recall that earlier this month I told you about the departure of Japanese convenience store Famima!! from the space at 1348 3rd St Promenade.  Wasting no time whatsoever, Trimana Fresh Food Market has posted notices in the window announcing their impending arrival.  No word on when they’ll open, but until they do, check out their menu and read more here.



Famima!! Closes In Santa Monica… And All Of Southern California

Japanese convenience chain Famima!! appears to be abandoning its experimental foray into Southern California.  The purveyor of prepared foods and sundries has closed its doors in the Third Street Promenade as of last week.  According to the Wikipedia page, all stores in SoCal will be closed as of this month.  Too soon to tell what might replace it, but I’ll keep watching.
