Silver Lake has a new place to shop for groceries with the opening today of a Yummy.com store overlooking Polka Dot Plaza at Sunset Boulevard and Maltman Avenue. The focus of the small chain is on delivering orders in about 30 minutes but, according to one resident who lives nearby, the new store, with its tall ceiling and exposed wooden beams, looks like a pretty pleasant place to shop in person. “The store looks great!,” said Bich Ngoc Cao, who lives nearby. “I am excited to buy my dinner supplies there later.”
While the Silver Lake Yummy is far smaller than a typical supermarket, will the promise of 30-minute delivery siphon away customers from the Silver Lake Trader Joe’s and create some extra spaces in that crowded parking lot?
