OC's Only Blimpie Closes
Orange County's only outpost of the Blimpie sandwich-shop chain, located at 840 The City Dr. S. in Orange, has closed its doors, part of a reshuffling of businesses that has seen the departure of a doughnut shop, a cell-phone store and a flower shop.
Management for the Orange City Square, which owns the building, has announced that a yet-to-be-named pizzeria will be moving into the plaza.
If you're a fan of Blimpie--and we have to assume that if you're reading this blog, you're probably not because it wasn't very good--you'll have to make your way to Chino for your fix, or head across the Santa Ana River to the Subway at Bristol and Memory.
