Modern convenience store Famima!! will be opening two new Downtown locations early 2009. Angelenic excitedly reports that the first will be at Wilshire and Hope, "a mere block away from the existing Famima!! at 6th and Grand"; the second new locale is still not released. This will make for a total of six Downtown Famima!!s. We know, the '!!' are a bit taxing, but it is the official name. [Angelenic]
