Which Biz Is Your Favorite?

Here are the top 25 sales tax producers in South Pas.

Business seems to be picking up in South Pas, according to a recent city staff report. 

Receipts show that sales were up 8.1 percent in April through June of 2011 over those same months in 2010. 

These 25 businesses generated the most sales tax revenue. Which do you frequent most often?

Fry's South Pasadena Chevron...that's what Google sez.

I would have to say of all these businesses, I visit Shakers the most. Can't beat their omelets!

Too bad so many of these businesses are chains. I'm glad that sales tax revenue is increasing for the city but the way to really increase the economic health of South Pasadena is to spend your money at locally owned businesses. Of course, redeveloping locally-owned businesses for some categories would help. I miss Swan Stationers, Balk's Hardware, etc.

I think the Ralph's at Atlantic and Huntington is in South Pasadena, even though it seems that it's in Alhambra.

Thanks for liking SPACE, Margaret! I love Grass Roots, Heirloom, Zinnia, Dinosaur Farm, South Pasadena Music, Fremont Centre Theater, Marz, and more.

Hi all: I know some of you aren't familiar with all of these businesses. I added links to each of them that were without. Fry's refers to the 76 Gas Station on Fair Oaks. Not sure why/when the name changed.
