Restaurants and retail
Last spring a hastily scrawled sign on the door of Great Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant said "under new management," but no one there wanted to talk about it. "It's a private, family matter," said one of the staff members, who refused to give a name or say if she was a member of that family. "It's like"--she struggled for words--"one part of the family had a problem with another part of the family, but it's nothing that a customer [or, by implication, the Observer] should care about." She disappeared back into the kitchen.
