Mega-Chains Invading Culver City

A double-headed dose of uber-chain is invading Downtown Culver City, just around the corner from new P.S. 310. Nation-wide frozen yogurt empire (and pusher of a saccharine world of made-up fruit-faced characters) Menchie’s is taking over a terrific corner space on Main Street, set on dispensing its apple pie, cinnamon roll, and pina colada flavors to the neighborhood.

Right next door, Wich Wich’, the sandwich shop that arms you with a Sharpie and a brown paper bag (and briefly became our pen pals), is taking over the site at 3849 Main Street. Both locations are set to begin construction soon, giving an extra dose of what every other city basically has to the recently developed area.
