Petition update

KH Supermarket Will Be Closing May 31 | Thank You All for Everything

Kh Supermarket

May 20, 2021 — 

It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing KH will be closing its doors at the end of this month. This has been such a difficult journey but we are so thankful for everyone being there with us and for us through it all.

This petition started as something that I never thought would amount to anything. I just couldn’t sit by and do nothing as these circumstances were forced on us. I still remember going to dinner the night I started the petition and seeing 200 signatures and being in awe that so many people cared enough to sign. After dinner, we reached 3000 and I was in tears. Not because I was feeling the helplessness that was weighing on me, but because I felt hope igniting for the first time is what felt like forever.

I can’t begin to thank everyone enough for sharing your stories and supporting our market for over the past decade. Although we’ve lost this battle, what we’ve taken away from this experience is so much more than what we would’ve gained from simply accepting our situation without any resistance. In result, Cambodia Town Thrives is a new initiative that’s now in existence to help prevent instances like this from happening again in our community.

Our community is strong, resilient and will continue to be.

There is a currently a documentary in the works that will allow all of us to remember KH even after the store is gone. KH would be nothing without you all and we’d love to highlight your stories.  If you have something you’d like to share, perhaps a memory or your connection to the market, please send a short clip to Brandon or Lan, the two filmmakers who’ve taken the time to create this documentary, at:

Brandonsoun1@gmail.com 
Or 
Lannguyen@ucla.edu


A link to the gofundme will be listed below to help finish this film.

 

We at KH would just like to say thank you for allowing us to serve the community for the past 15 years.

From my family to yours, we will truly miss you all.
