David Chung, alongside his brother Jason Chung, have opened up a very unique establishment for the city of Whittier. They have brought the community a new way of shopping for specialty items while enjoying a freshly brewed coffee in their new shop Local Fixture.

Although they opened up about three years ago, this business manages to continuously bring in local customers and beyond. The location is not only available for window shopping and coffee lovers, but the ultimate goal for these brothers is to bring the community together.

It began with the realization by the Chung brothers that within the city of Whittier, it was hard to truly find a place where you can find a variety of gifts for absolutely anyone without needing to drive to an unlimited amount of locations, a completely different county, or the famous city of LA. The objective isn’t to raise sales, but to make the community become more like family.

“At the same time we wanted to make it a place where the community can gather and hang out, whether it would be for a date, to shop, or events we have”, Chung explained.

It’s genuinely a place for absolutely anyone, no matter what age or gender, there’s something here for you! They include items from jewelry to apparel, all types of accessories, furniture, books, and other nifty items.

There’s a little bit of everything

“We cater to the whole family; mom, dad, the kids, teenagers, college kids. Everything ties together because everything is so unique”  David Chung continued.

The coffee bar is actually new within the building, that after a lot of planning, it only made sense to bring the idea to life. The Chung brothers were able to reach beyond their successful gift shop and add a place where people can come together for a home like vibe. Local Fixture now has more people coming in, not only for beautiful accessories or very unique items, but for coffee lovers and tea admirers.

The addition of the coffee bar brought sales up and the amount of people excited to stop by has expanded. Many have found it a lot easier to visit Local Fixture for the same great quality coffee that many only find in Los Angeles or Hollywood. This allows customers to receive the same quality of coffee without the excessive drive and just as friendly service.

The beautiful and welcoming general store has become more than just a place for shoppers, it has become a way to make it more convenient for the Locals to avoid a crazy drives, and come together as more than just customers. Local Fixture puts in their effort to make Whittier more than a city, but a family.
