Crossword Genius

In Los Angeles, hopeless retailer (1-4)


I believe the answer is:


'retailer' is the definition.
(electronic retailer)

'in los angeles hopeless' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'E-SHOP' is hidden within 'los angeles hopeless'.

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
