Over a quarter of the retail spaces on the Third Street Promenade are vacant, a troubling sign for what was once one of LA’s premier shopping destinations. At a recent Santa Monica City Council meeting, strategies were discussed on how to revitalize the area, including the potential establishment of an arts and entertainment district within the Promenade.
As part of continued reporting on this, we asked readers for feedback on how often they shop at the Promenade and the results are in. In total, over 350 people responded to the survey. 45 percent of respondents said they never shopped at the Promenade, 36 percent said they shopped at the Promenade a few times a year, 11 percent said monthly, 4 percent said weekly and 4 percent said multiple times a week.
Check back next week to hear what local stakeholders and officials have to say about the results of this survey!
