What's Killing Off The Great Chinese Banquet Facilities of Monterey Park?

I have no idea what issues might be leading to such a steep decline, but hearing that Ocean Star closed hurt a bit b/c that place was such a big part of my childhood.

Would it? I don’t know much about restaurant financials, but, depending on the lease and # of people employed, I actually do wonder if full weekends would be enough to keep the place open. Rent in MP is probably not a lot per sq ft (vs. westside), but that place was HUGE.
