Doremi Market closes in Koreatown
Less than five months after its splashy grand opening, spacious Korean supermarket Doremi and its adjacent noodle shop Doremi Udon (located on Olympic Boulevard near Hoover) have shut their doors. There are plenty of other Korean markets big and small in Koreatown -- including Market World half a mile west at Olympic and Berendo -- but it's always sad to see one bite the dust. You'll just have to go elsewhere for your gallon jugs of kimchi and assortment of Korean fruits, vegetables, juices, seasonings, seafood, candy and noodles.
The parking lot is locked, the shelves have been stripped and calls to the market, the noodle shop and Sunny Hill Group Inc. have gone unanswered or unreturned.
