Winds calm at Chinook site
It's been more than a year since owner Gary Sondermann started sending out information packets to prospective tenants for the old Chinook Bookshop building on North Tejon Street. It's been six months since renovations to complete two new storefronts were completed. And yet these prime locations in the heart of downtown remain empty. Sondermann, just back from a family trip, says he has some new leads, but is still no closer to finding "the right retail neighbor" for the two properties, both of which have more than 2,000 square feet.
