You can search LA County business names here:
http://rrcc.lacounty.gov/CLERK/FBN_Search.cfm

I would also do a federal trademark search:
http://tess2.uspto.gov/

If another business with your name holds a federal trademark or sells wholesale in your area that would be an issue, otherwise you should be OK.
