Walmart protest draws thousands to Chinatown

The comments are a great read. We have a WalMart in City of Industry, which is right next to the city I live in, Rowland Heights.The WalMart has had little to no impact I have seen on Chinese businesses in the area. We also have a Cosco, Target, tons of Chinese supermarkets and bakeries in our area.

The comment that why would anyone go to a Chinese bakery for a cake, vs. WalMart I disagree with.

"What would happen to landmark businesses just down the street here like Phoenix Bakery and Wonder Bakery if you could just go down to Walmart and get a cake for $1.99?

My 2 Cents:

If you want a cheap American style cake with butter cream frosting (basically powered sugar and crisco) you can choose WalMart, and I doubt it's $1.99 For a slice, yes.. You want one with whip cream frosting with almonds on the sides, fruit filling such as Peach, Strawberry, Taro, and fruit on top you should go to a Chinese bakery such as Phoenix bakery. The price for a slice of cake at a Chinese bakery is around the same price. A whole cake is around $25 (depends on the bakery).

WalMart's bakery and the local Chinese bakeries are completely different on what they offer.

Phoenix Bakery's amount of business seems to have slowed down over the years.

There has been a huge increase in the amount of Chinese Bakeries in LA County. 25 years ago, a friends family would drive 20 miles from Monrovia, to get a cake from them. Now they would just go to JJ Bakery in Arcadia.

When there are bakeries and patisseries like Kee Wah Bakery (Hong Kong Chinese), Diamond Bakery, KiKi Bakery, Van's Bakery (owned by Chinese from Vietnam), I Fu Tang (Taiwanese), Jim's Bakery, and 99 Ranch Market's in-store Desir, I reckon Wal-Mart is not the one going to kill Phoenix.
