I realize doing two Famima!! posts in a row throws me well into the Curbed.LA "all famima!! all the time" mold, but I think this is worth posting about. As promised, the new store did open today at 800 S. Figueroa and I wandered by just now to check out the crowd.

First impression: they have customers. That's a big deal, obviously. Many times you see a spot open soft and build via word of mouth. Today was their first day and it was already busy inside, both with people buying stuff off the shelves and people buying prepared food. In the photo you can see customers at their tables along the windows. I like the idea of having eat-in at a convenience store.

The night crowd is going to be tougher. As raymond mentioned in the comments, they'll be open 6am to 10pm during the week and 7am to 10pm over the weekend. I'll be very interested to see what sales are like in the 6pm to 10pm hours.
