Weeks before she opened her new consignment boutique on West Lockeford Street, Lodi resident Marika Paternostro was told by many people she wouldn’t last because she wasn’t located Downtown like similar shops.

With the support of her family, friends and business neighbors, she opened Jillian’s Consignment Boutique anyway, determined to prove those who doubt her wrong.

    Good for her. There are many businesses that should be in Downtown Lodi other than wine tasting and boutiques. And let's hope the new revitalization project on Sac. St. finally brings to an end that Sac. St. is not really qualified to be a part of Downtown Lodi. It's taken decades to FINALLY get Sac. St .back into the mix. It was once just as thriving as School St. and other areas in Downtown. But, somwhere down the line the powers to be let Sac. Street deteriorate so they could have their street for the Boogie Man to roam. . Let's hope in the next decade or so there will be almost nothing to remind us of Skid Row. Of course the powers to be often blame it on the interruption in passenger train service. What a silly excuse.
