Maggie Smith is that you?

Hellenic- American Greek Imports (a.ka. My Big Fat Greek Store) will be closing its doors forever as soon as they sell their last wares plus the paint off the walls probably.

The Mission Street institution has been selling goods to the once-immense local Greek community for over seventy years and will join the ranks of old Mission mainstays that no longer could stem the tide of sky-rocketing rents and disappearing communities. Alas, even their hip, latter day moniker couldn’t put off the end.

So if you are in the market for jumbo jars of taromosalata, censers, crosses, enormously endowed statues of satyrs, or even the refrigerator cases and shelving units, do drop in at Hellenic-American before it joins its neighbour, the El Capitàn, in the pantheon of Mission ghosts from the past.

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder (Editor, San Francisco)

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inability to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999.
By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for the SF Bay Guardian, Bold Italic and 7x7. He also likes to enjoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
