From a special Racked informant comes news that the West Hollywood outpost of perky convenience store chain Famima!! is hanging up its exclamation points. The shop will close this Friday at 6pm, and until then, some items are 50% off. Traffic was simply too slow at that location—apparently not a company-wide problem, since in December the company announced that they would soon be opening two new locations, one of which will inexplicably occupy the same block as another Famima.
