The Hikari Apartments at 375 East 2nd Street in Little Tokyo are getting some mixed-use action. Angelenic reports "a new clothing shop called Kimski Makes has installed storefront signage and will be opening its doors soon. The Japanese-owned boutique will sell contemporary, second-hand fashions."
American Apparel is moving right next door from its 2nd and Central location. The downtown blog notes, the T-shirt co. was "one of the first new-wave retailers to take a chance years ago on the then budding Little Tokyo neighborhood."
Also, around the corner, Yogurtland is nearly complete. Per the same post, "According to Kelli Rodriguez, a corporate spokesman for the company, says no official date is set, but the store will open sometime in late April/early May."
