You're right Jim. I never realized that!! It MAY be employment discrimination .... a lot of that is going on now!

Michaels Arts and Crafts is slated to open there. There is already a sign indicating this at the property

Who would want that? this is the reason waldbaums failed in the first place. Racist African American,,Hispanic and white workers who traveled to the store to work but resented their customers. Asian workers know the deal. Provide service or snap... your fired. The end

Progress does not stop because of old outdated views that are on this page. lol. Waldbaum's was a disaster. Lets face it. Comments on this page are down right racist towards asian people. Get a life. I'm not asian but they take no crap when it comes to treating customers the base of their business correctly. If the worker doesn't do it. No second chances. Snap..you're fired. Also Asian markets demand only fresh produce and meats and also demand low competitive pricing. Let's see what happens

I've lived here for 30 years and I am upset with this! I will not shop there andjust imagine how bad the parking will be! These people can't even drive correctly, some don't even have licenses! And I am tired of these Asian already! They do nothing but overcrowd the schools over here, and build two family homes and put three families in it! I grew up in this neighborhood, now I'm being priced out of the neighborhood because of them! They don't even pay taxes on their homes because they get these homes through their so called "churches" so no tax is paid on it! I wish they would've stayed in flushing
