This Used To Be...#4

Orange Julius. The stand on the corner is now Los Chilis Locos and you might also be able to see that the sign across the front of the building itself still says "Johnni's Burger."

This is an important corner for Monrovia history. The Certified Market hidden behind Los Chilis Locos used to be Pronto Market. Pronto Market was the company that would eventually become Trader Joe's. This would all come full circle when Trader Joe's moved their headquarters to Monrovia.


I went to school with one of the children of Mr Joe. It was in the the early 70's when she told me that her dad owned a few markets. Who knew!
