Went by the Hong Kong Supermarket on Colima Road in Rowland Heights and found it was closed. Furthermore, an informant mentioned to me a few weeks ago that the Hong Kong Supermarket in West Covina was in the process of closing. Both markets anchor their respective shopping centers, and I think both centers are named Hong Kong Plaza. Given that Hong Kong Supermarket had seemingly successfully expanded to the east coast, something which 99 Ranch has yet to do, I find this quite surprising. Anybody have any insight?
Also noted that at the Rowland Heights Hong Kong Plaza, three of the anchor restaurant locations are vacant including those occupied at one time by places such as Tasty Garden, Hainan Chicken and Chicken Garden. Also one significant change inside the bowling alley portion of the shopping center is that Manie's, a well regarded Sichuan restaurant has been replaced by another Sichuan style restaurant called Happiness Restaurant.
