Marck Sarfati, Son of Holocaust Survivor, Faces Eviction by Corporate Giant Whole Foods in Brentwood Newsstand Lease Fight

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Brentwood Newsstand is being evicted by Whole Foods Market on October 1, 2017. The newsstand has been an exemplary tenant for more than 28 years. Of historic significance, the newsstand is the last of its kind on the Westside of Los Angeles.

In an ugly display of corporate greed, Whole Foods, an $11 billion company, is bullying a small, local business, forcing it out of business.

The newsstand is owned by Marck Sarfati. He opened the stand at this location in 1989. Marck is 66 years old. He lives with and cares for his father who is 96 years old, and a Holocaust survivor. The newsstand is the only source of income for Marck and his father, Nic Sarfati.

Nic was captured by the Nazis and forced into a labor camp in Northern Greece when he was 21 years old. Nic's parents and sister, along with her husband and 6-month old baby were transported to Auschwitz and killed. Nic escaped, joined the partisans, and fought the Nazis. After coming to the U.S. he owned the Beach House Market on the oceanfront in Venice Beach for 30 years (it's still there).

Dissemination of news media, access to the free press is now more important than ever.

Whole Foods cites phantom complaints from customers about "parking" for its decision to force the newsstand out of business. But parking hasn't been a problem in 28 years. Whole Foods' patronage continues to nosedive -- the store needs to blame someone for diminished sales, and they are scapegoating the newsstand.

We, the undersigned, are concerned customers who strongly urge Whole Foods Market to allow Brentwood Newsstand to remain in its present location and continue serving our community, as it has done for many years. If Whole Foods forces the newsstand out of business, we will no longer patronize and encourage others to boycott Whole Foods Market.

A side note: Gabrielle Greens Sulzberger, the wife of New York Times Publisher and owner, Arthur Sulzberger Jr, also happens to be a board member of  Whole Foods.  For decades, we have been the number one Regional Sales kiosk in California of The New York Times (Sunday Edition) owned by her husband.
