Magnolia Park

December 19, 2009
I don’t know what’s up with the Magnolia Park Developers, but as a longtime pedestrian on the boulevard in the area, it has taken an unforgivable amount of time to get more exciting and varied stores and eateries in the area. Sadly, Magnolia Park has never been built up to its full potential. There are only a handful of stores when there could be many more. A couple of more antique stores would be nice. On Sundays, many stores appear to be closed, and those that are open, I can easily count on one hand, give or take one or two. I am sad, disgusted and fed up with businesses failing to thrive here, and a couple of residents I spoke to say they even got mailers asking what kinds of businesses they would like to see in the area.

DOWNTOWN ? The Burbank Leader has debuted new datelines ? the uppercase indicator at the beginning of a news article noting where the story occurred ? in an effort to localize stories and better distinguish neighborhoods, editors said. ?Burbank has a lot of unique communities, and it didn?t seem that we were serving them as well by just slapping the generic Burbank dateline on it,? said Dan Evans, editor of the Burbank Leader. The 10 dateline areas are: Hillside, Airport District, North San Fernando, West Burbank, Downtown, South San Fernando, Magnolia Park, Toluca Lake, Media District and Rancho District.

BURBANK — Despite thousands of signatures culled from neighborhood residents and business owners, the U.S. Postal Service is moving ahead with plans to shutter the Magnolia Park Post Office and studying whether to close the Glenoaks Station Post Office, officials said. While a final decision has yet to be made public, the Magnolia Park office at 3810 W. Magnolia Blvd. is expected to close its doors at the end of the year and move about 1.5 miles to 2140 N.

It?s easy to spot owner Alan Arzoian in his time-warp of a grocery store, Handy Market, at 2514 W. Magnolia Blvd. For one, he?s forever fitted in his usual shorts and short-sleeved shirt, greeting regulars by first name or checking on the produce. Another reason is because at 4,000 square feet, Handy Market just isn?t that big. Arzoian, who first became involved with the family business in 1970 before graduating from Hoover High in Glendale and moving onto Cal State Los Angeles, sat down with us for a quick back-and-forth about the economy, its impact on his business and those pesky cravings for steak.
