Juice N Things closes

Reader Primetime tells me that Juice N Things, which replaced Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at 4991 Carpinteria Avenue in Carpinteria in May 2021, is not only closed but there is also a “Notice to Pay Rent or Quit” sign posted on the door with the names of the involved parties and the amount of the unpaid back rent listed. Whoa! With luck they reopen soon.

    Better pay or else. Go capitalistic regimes!

      If you ever become a landlord please let me know. I would love to have a landlord that doesn’t evict and that considers collecting past due rent evil.

    • El Guapo says:

      Yeah the property owner should just personally finance that business! How dare the landlord actually expect the rent that was promised to be paid when they signed that binding legal document!

    I don’t think it was necessary, and Def unneighborly to post the quit notice online. Really?? When it is clear small and microbusinesses are suffering all over. Have some decency.
    Not cool. At a time we should be rallying around them.

  3. Hefe says:

    Based on the same amount due 3 months in a row it appears they just stopped paying.

    The bills don’t stop for the property owner. That is a business also.

    Tough times for all involved.

    Why aren’t there govt protections for leasees? Why is everything privatized, for profit, profiteering in the US empire? Sad for the leasee.

    If they have over $800,000,000,00 each year for the US empire’s military/800+ overseas war bases, then perhaps, they can help their citizens with their businesses, life, and basic things like food, healthcare, education etc.

    We need to stop assuming all LL’s are big business and all tenants are mom and pop.

    There are many mom and pop LL’s and many larger corporate tenants.

    There are lots of small real estate management companies providing working class jobs(bookkeeping, admin, maintainable etc).

    If one class of small business is allowed to not pay their bills it affects other small businesses and those jobs.

    Not to mention all the businesses that are contracted to maintain all these commercial buildings(hvac, window washing, sign companies, plumbers, electricians, parking lot maintainance, landscaping etc).

    Spend some time on the CA department of consumer affairs website for some better insight. Talk to a real estate broker or lawyer about the negotiations and “rules” agreed to by both parties when entering a lease contract. Eyes wide open
