Tu e s d a y,
August 9, another
Starbucks opened its
doors for business in
Norwalk. Located on
11031 F irestone Blvd
in the Studebaker and
Firestone Shopping
Center, Store Manager
A n g e l a M a r k s b u r y,
District Manager Joey
Esguerra and staff welcomed guests with open arms as they kicked off the store’s Grand Opening with a live
brass band, folklorico dancers, and crafts for the kids. Delicious drink and savory food samples were also
given out during the grand opening event. As part of the ribbon cutting ceremony, Vice Mayor presented
a Business Spotlight award and the Chamber of Commerce President presented an award in recognition
of Starbucks being the newest member to the Chamber.
Starbucks was negatively impacted
by the 2008 economic downturn and as a
result, had to close stores throughout the
region. However, Starbucks Chairman,
P resident, and CEO Howard Shultz
reports that their third quarter 2011 results
show that the company “has never been
healthier” and now “better positioned
to go after the tremendous business
opportunities that lie ahead.”
This is the fifth Norwalk store opened
by Starbucks corporate headquarters.
District Manager Joey Esguerra says, “We
chose the Firestone/Studebaker location
due to its proximity to the 605 freeway and
the success that other Starbucks stores in
Norwalk are experiencing. “ This Starbucks location has a drive-thru, making it easy for customers to pick up
their morning cup of coffee or afternoon ice frappuccino.
Store hours are from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week. For more information please call (562) 807-3715.

Ganga Family Clothing
is one of the newly opened
businesses here in Norwalk. This
family oriented shop opened its
doors on June 18, 2011 and
is bound to create a positive
impact on the community.
Located just east of the 605
Freeway, down Firestone Blvd, this boutique sells quality
clothing
for men,
women,
boys, girls and infants. They also carry other merchandise
which includes plus size clothing, shoes, and accessories.
Albert Galante, the man in charge, is glad he is given the
chance to provide Norwalk residents with quality clothing and
great fashion at very affordable prices for the whole family.
This is the first Ganga Family Clothing store in the area and
Mr. Galante hopes to expand his business beyond his already
existing stores in Mexico and San Diego while appealing to
a new crowd. He believes the City of Norwalk provides a
promising opportunity to do just that!
