The $9.99 Only Store is like an open dumpster of Whole Foods day-olds and haters are gonna hate an organic store with prices as high as imports shipped off the coast of a tiny island in the Maldives.

This building was supposed to turn into a Fresh & Easy, but instead of a Fresh & Easy, Echo Park has gotten an Old & Hard. The salad bar and pre-made items look like they sit around for hours, even with a lot of foot traffic around them, because not many others besides myself can swallow purchasing a container filled with something that would be more expensive than dining out at Sage Organic Vegan across the street. I have walked around this store at least twice in a stupor desperately looking to purchase something that I felt wouldn’t be ripping me off.

I don’t think they expect people to buy much here. But for those who do, Lassens seem to not so humbly ask those who can afford the $3 to $5 price inflation to give back to the community. Hopefully this will be made in good health, rather than in the form of another $30,000 donation to help fight gay marriage by Prop 8-supporting and gayby-fearing Mr. and Mrs. Lassen.

It’s an extraordinary store, if by what I mean by extraordinary is that it probably is going to quickly outgrow itself with high prices like these and replace their ugly wood laminate floors with gold laminate bricks.
