Salsa is Toast: One More Store Gone From Melrose

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Salsa Fits My Life, but it apparently wasn't a great fit for the neighborhood. Gone without so much as a peep. We haven't been able to reach anyone at the company for comment, but we're guessing it's the usual culprits: high rent, declining foot traffic in the area (since so many shops have bailed), soft economy?and we're speculating, but in thin-obsessed LA, we can't believe there was a huge market for rump-plumping jeans.
