Ojai: The Shattering of a Community - West Breaks His Promise of Retention: Longtime Employees Told to Hit The Road
by Clive Leeman, Ojai
A few weeks ago, I walked for the first time into the shattered community in the center of Ojai that had been Starr Market. The physical structure has not changed much, but many Starr workers have disappeared. The faces and voices of those beautiful women and men who worked so closely together for many years provisioning Ojai have just been wiped out.
I was told by several Starr employees a few days before Starr Market closed that their new employer would be retaining them all. In fact, on April 29, the Ojai Valley News reported that "current Starr Market employees will be kept on under the new management."
Now, in a flash, the familiar faces are gone except for a few. The old community has been annihilated.
