New Wave Gone

Time is running out to get your summer beach shorts — New Wave in Belmont Shore is closing its doors.

The family-operated store, specializing in beachwear, casualwear and footwear for men and boys, is hosting a store-closing sale with everything marked down 50-70% off.

“Everything must go” signs are posted outside the business, which has been operating on Second Street since 2009 at the corner of Santa Ana Avenue.

Planting Roots

Plant Power, a vegan drive-thru chain, planted roots here in Long Beach last weekend.

The San Diego-based company’s newest location is at 5095 Pacific Coast Highway, at Clark Avenue, and is open everyday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“We believe that one of the most powerful decisions that any of us can make is to decrease the amount of animal products in our diet,” according to the company website. “We’re all moving pretty quickly these days, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to enjoy some nourishing fast food that feeds your soul and makes your mouth happy.”

The company’s products are meant to be “kind to our animal friends, easy on the planet and good for the body you live in.”

Pharmacy Move

Johns Shop-Rite Pharmacy and Medical Supply recently relocated from 3717 E. South St. in Long Beach to a larger venue at 4333 South St. in Lakewood.

“We were located in the same location since 1985, and as much as it is bittersweet, we are excited about our new location to better serve our community,” owner Mike Halim said.

The business now has room for a full line of medical supplies and equipment and a larger pharmacy, including a full service post office on site. Also offered are home deliveries for medications and supplies.

Planning Award

Long Beach was honored last month with four awards from the Los Angeles section of the American Planning Association (APA), which celebrates the most noteworthy planning projects, plans and programs in the Los Angeles region.

“These award-winning projects represent the city’s innovative development and planning efforts aimed at providing greater opportunity for our diverse community,” Mayor Robert Garcia said.

This was the sixth consecutive year Long Beach was recognized by the APA.

The following Long Beach projects and initiatives were recognized: Wetlands Restoration and Oil Operations Consolidation; “Everyone In” Economic Inclusion Initiative; Historic District Design Guidelines; and Alison Spindler, a member of the Development Services Planning Bureau was named Outstanding Young Planner of the Year.
