TICKER: Roseview Barber at Valley View and Rosecrans has gone out of business. The original owner was Al back in the 60’s and 70’s and the only other owners, we all knew as Louie and Debbie. Since the Shabuya restaurant opened at La Mirada Boulevard and Rosecrans a little over a month ago, the parking lot has been packed. Business has diminished slightly since the opening, but the eatery appears to have established itself as an area destination. I don’t know how many La Mirada residents are eating there, but we like the sales tax going into our city coffers!
