Change and new beginnings have come to the area again. Walk this Way on Honolulu Avenue has come under new ownership. Long time owner Julie Kumjian sold her store to one of her favorite clients, Edna Baghoumian. Walk this Way calls itself, “A neighborhood shoe store.” They have been in business for 24 years and have worked hard to build a reputation for being number one in customer care. They offer a wide selection of the finest name brand quality shoes that are fashionable, chic, durable, and most importantly, comfortable. Walk this Way is located at 2253 Honolulu Ave. in Montrose. They invite you to come in and browse at your leisure. They have a very knowledgeable staff waiting to offer their expertise in helping you find the perfect shoe.

Please join us for a ribbon cutting at Walk This Way on Friday, April 13 at noon. Light refreshments will be provided.

Just up the hill off Ocean View on Foothill Boulevard, you will find Zina’s Healthy Corner. This cute new lunch counter-style restaurant prides itself on offering the freshest, healthiest food that is not only affordable but tastes great. Innovative salads with all kinds of wonderful ingredients, Mediterranean fare and a beautiful outdoor seating area all make for a wonderful dining experience.
