The ups and downs of business


Last week, the radio station KFI held a cash mob at Zlaket’s Market, an 85-year-old family business on Historic Main Street in Garden Grove. The cash mob was a great success: dozens of customers flocked to the market and purchased about $7,000 of foods, beverages and other stuff. But alas, small businesses – and big ones, too – increasingly are forced to deal with lawsuits brought on by this or that plaintiff. In this case, a disabled man is suing Zlaket’s for $4,000 for not providing wheelchair access at another one of Zlaket’s businesses down the street. The man filing the lawsuit has reportedly filed nine such lawsuits in Orange County. Pictured here is KFI DJ Bill Carroll broadcasting the cash mob at Zlaket’s last week.
