China South closed, new retail complex will take its place in Lincoln Heights

The China South Restaurant on Spokane's South Hill has closed.

Owners are the Cho and Chan Family Trust, who've operated the restaurant in the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center for 20 years.

They plan to build a new retail center after tearing down the building. It was originally, when built in 1962, an A&W Restaurant.

For the full story, go to tomorrow or look for it in Friday's print edition business section.

Work taking place at the nearby Trader Joe's played a role in the decision, said Chin Ho Cho, one of the owners.
