I just read a post on astorians.com that has relaxed my concerns:
I stopped by Laziza yesterday, and was reassured that it is NOT closing - whether or not the building is for sale. The guy I spoke with seemed like either an owner or manager (I didn't actually ask). He mentioned that 90% of the news is lies I shouldn't believe as well as the information online about Laziza closing. He also pointed out the many upgrades they've been doing on the place as proof they intend to be there a long while.
I will stop in soon and ask, too. The idea of Laziza closing is very sad to me, so this news makes me feel better.
