This proposed store sounds like a good idea.
Ralphs: formerly a family-built and owned chain in Southern Calif. I grew up on their food and shopped there as an adult. They were very good. Since being bought by a conglomerate, though (and changing hands that way more than once, I recall), the quality went downhill and their expansion into Northern Calif. was a mistake.
