Doremi Market closes in Koreatown

Doremiclosed3 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.

There are much better locations in Koreatown now, like Galleria Market on Western and City Market on 6th. Even old standbys like Hamnam Market and California Market have better locations.
