Would Jax be missed? I'm not sure.

I don't think so. Jax sells Trek and offers great customer service (the the exception of the very young guy who doesn't want to be there) which can't be forgotten.
1) Another thread, seriously?
2) Jax was a great shop to me when I lived in the LBC and I'm not too worried about their service department, but it will be hard to compete in terms of retail merchandise with Performance's prices.

Their non-bike selection is horrible and they don't seem to believe that anyone actually buys cycling clothes, but the wrenches at Jax have always given me a fair shake. They're always willing to gift me miscellaneous screws, bolts, ferrules, etc. whenever I've needed them. They also came up huge on a friend's warranty issue so, I hope they stick around.

are they officially open?

With all this chatter, you'd think it was, wouldn't you? But no. Not open yet.

Performance's new store in Long Beach (@ Long Beach Towne Center) is coming "Spring 2011".
I am a little embarrassed to admit I didn't know about it before. My mom told me. She still gets the paper mailed catalogs and flyers and noticed the announcement on the back of one of them.
Jax: I would definitely miss Jax, but mostly for their service dept. I rarely drop in there to buy equipment, although I do on occasion because they do have stuff, albeit usually at a higher price.
Performance: I welcome it to the area. About freakin' time! I was tired of driving to Fountain Valley or Torrance. Performance used to have great prices but they've climbed higher over the years, but they still have a pretty good general selection and value.
