  • Plowboys Market says:

    Seems like there is a murder connected with this city monthly. Thought the casino incomes were to clean up this city? More and more homicides are being reported. Hawaiian Gardens and East Lakewood have recently lost 2 grocery stores: Walmart Grocery and Ralphs, plus few yrs ago, lost Vons. When is the city council going to address this mass exit? Miss shopping at Plowboys.
