Small business

I met with the Assistant Director of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the College of the Canyons (COC) University Center today. COC is a really good educational spot for this city and co-sponsors the SBDC with the state. We spent a little over an hour discussing possibilities and plan to meet next week.

Later I strolled through the Valencia Town Center’s ‘Westfield’ Mall. I noticed that most stores was geared for young people, mostly clothing, jewelry — bling — babies, kiddies, teenagers, young adults. While viable, my overall impression is that it lacked substance, but it was also a weekday, so there weren’t many people buzzing the stores and thus it was hard to gauge traffic. There were some notable closures — businesses that pulled out. The art gallery was gone, replaced with an arcade.  Regardless, Santa Clarita is doing better than many other cities in California, just wish the political situation was different.
