No more convenient access to toilet paper, cosmetics and gum for Santee Court. Per Angelenic: "In a blow to the neighborhood’s retail services, Rite Aid has announced it will close its 12,000 square-foot store and pharmacy at 7th and Los Angeles streets in the Santee Court development. With nearly 450 residential units, Santee Court and the adjacent Santee Village condominiums represent a considerable residential anchor in the northern Fashion District." The store's manager tells the blog "sales at the location never took off as expected." [Angelenic]
