3434: the number of the Beast

Bill and Larry Mathis — yes, they are brothers — have snagged 14.5 acres of land in Ontario, California, on which they're going to build a monster of a furniture store, 150,000 square feet with 230,000 square feet of warehouse space.

The Mathis brothers are paying $11.50 per square foot cash for the property, a bit above market. The tract in question is part of 202 acres owned by the city of Ontario which once made up now-defunct Ontario Motor Speedway.

This will be the second Mathis Brothers store in California; a store in Indio, in the Low Desert, opened in 1999.

Heaven save me from Mathis Brothers!
