Landlord should reconsider

By
From page A6 | April 04, 2013 |

I am writing to protest the imminent closing of Common Grounds coffeehouse, my home away from home in South Davis. I am disappointed — disgusted, actually — that Regency Centers, a very large corporation, won’t offer a new lease to Son Chong and his wife, Michelle Kim, to keep their successful mom-and-pop store in the Oakshade Town Center.

The company’s take-no-prisoners attitude jeopardizes the livelihood of the proprietors of an independently owned small business.

I hope Regency Centers will reconsider its decision and start negotiating at this eleventh hour on a new lease for Common Grounds. Not only will this be a sound business move, it will earn Regency Centers the goodwill of a large segment of the Davis population.

For many in our town, Common Grounds has been a destination coffee shop for more than a dozen years. The shop, under Chong and Kim, has attracted a very diverse group of loyal customers — neighborhood residents, business executives and UC Davis students, educators and administrators.

I hope Regency Centers will give Chong and Kim the opportunity to keep Common Grounds in operation at the Oakshade Town Center for many, many years.
