I’m away at college now, but I was down in Whittier about six weeks ago. Personally I think they should have remodelled or renovated the Whitwood Mall because if you have gone in there before it was demolished it was kind of gloomy and empty. They had to do something with it. I don’t think that they need a Target or a WalMart as they are both farely close in Santa Fe Springs, but I guess it’s all in the name of corporate greed. If they do put something in there I hope it’s a Target and not a WalMart. I know where the Walgreens on Whittier is, it’s surprising that that area used to be a movie theater because it’s nothing but warehouses and factories now. The Regal Cinema was put in after the Quake and has been vacant for sometime, they needed to do something with it.
Where exactly was the Whittier Theater? I’m from Whittier and had moved there just prior to the Whittier Narrows Quake, which was the first quake that I ever experienced. I just remember that there was a lot of damage especially to where the Quad is at right now. They had to demolish a lot of old buildings and put in new ones.
