Can Abbot Kinney Have Chain Stores?

Several have inquired if Update knew about chain stores going in on Abbot Kinney.  Challis Macpherson, former chair of Land Use and Planning Committee, said one cannot discriminate in reference to who is going in on Abbot Kinney—chain or no chain.
People were specific about mentioning Lucky, which is a supplier of blue jeans and is a large chain.  Challis said that one of the executives is a long-time Venice resident.  Chain or no chain, they all have to abide by the Venice Specific plan.
“One thing people should be aware of is that one has to comply with the square footage of the building on the property and the footprint,” she said.  “Otherwise, they have to meet the Venice Specific Plan for parking.”
