I wonder if it should come as any surprise to hungry overtaxed Long Beachers that another Long Beach grocery store is closing. Long Beach is home to one of the State's most radical of the expensive taxpayer funded universities. Many of the "new age" anti-jobs - anti consumer ideas are dreamed up the wealthy taxpayer supported radical occupiers of that "system".

The now worldwide war against the hated decent food eaters who partake in the ordinary worker *("middle")* class pleasure of enjoying an occasional tobacco product began right here in radical Long Beach. As a means of harassing those decent worker *("middle")* class food eaters, revolutionary Council imposed a heavy "license" tax on unionized grocers who sell tobacco products to those decent hard working God fearing folks. Now Democrats assembled in convention have escalated that war to include God himself.

monkey trial.

No one among the overtaxed and underrepresented majority of Americans is fooling himself that he can convince anyone of anything, only that he has a God given duty to make the most of a bad situation. After the revolution, the elderly 60s 70s revolutionaries *(druggies)**(now in power)* and their idiot "love children" seized control of all elements of expensive taxpayer funded academia and of Big Government. Revolutionary interests are now being promoted by Government's licensed propaganda organ, the "news" media. The prospects of meaningful change are slim to none. Even so, expressions of resistance may turn the lights on in the darkened minds of a few individuals who still yearn to be free.

They're closing down the Ralph's on anaheim and redondo. It's going to reopen is a crappy discount grocery store to appeal to the illegals and black folks. Now, the only "classy" store left in the shopping center is a Rite Aid.

That's the classic mark of a decided neighborhood downturn. So many whites have left, there's not enough of them to support decent grocery stores, so now we see the "food4less" vultures arrive.

Thanks, section 8! You've done it again!

Yes. Let's not forget that, during one of the burn-downs of the South LA/Compton/Long Beach corridor, the taxpayer supported Thug people targeted that very shopping center. Maybe Ralph's is just getting out while it still has the chance.

The last time I went to that Rite Aid, the door alarm was apparently not working properly. As I exited the door the alarm went off. A thuggish woman whom I took to be a Rite Aid employee rushed out to me, and in an intimidating manner - in full view of passersby - demanded to see the contents of the Lowenthal grocery harassment tax avoidance plastic bag I had gotten at a "customer friendly" Lakewood grocery store. Finding my papers and the contents of my plastic bag to be in order, she then demanded in a threatening manner that I should empty the contents of my pockets so she could inspect them. At that point I just walked away, preferring to take my chances with the Long Beach cops, rather than to suffer further insult.

Incidentally, Steve L. Rite Aid is required to charge Lowenthal goods bag harassment taxes to any customer who doesn't use taxpayer funded food stamps or taxpayer funded EBT cards.

With that much abandoned land space, can't the city of long beach put this area to good use? Oooopppsss, watch out what I am asking for....?

City Hall should take advantage of the vacant space and build more public housing to attract more Ebt'ers and Section 8'ers to choose Long Beach.

City Hall know that the more pitiful the population the more apt the voters are to settle for anything with a D beside it's name on a ballot. Laura Richardson didn't elect herself!

It's all good.

Steve, Ralphs and Food4Less are both owned by the Kroger Company.

That is method to the madness. I would not be surprised if they homeless and parolee "services" center there too.

So? It doesn't absolve them from the fact that they're exploiting a weakness for business purposes, while accelerating the downturn of a neighborhood.
If you're looking to buy a house, knowing your local grocery store is a "food4less" is a leading indicator of what you can expect from that neighborhood.
Certainly, the primary responsibility of the collapse of middle-class neighborhoods in Long Beach belongs to Mayor Foster, and the incompetent social engineering schemes of the City Council. For Kroeger, switching gears to a "poor people's store" is just exploiting the rapid-fire failures of the City Council, and the hardcore Welfarians they entreat.

Both Food4less and Ralph's are owned by Kroger. The reason Kroger has both brands operating in the same market is because - in theory - having both brands competing one against the other results in greater efficiencies of both. This so-called free-market theory of competition is somewhat distorted in cities under revolutionary control such as Long Beach. Offering basic customer services such as providing free grocery bags is one of the most elemental of services that have been provided American grocery shoppers ever since the American grocery industry began. In those cities, food shoppers have the choice of either providing "protected" fat-cat unionized grocers with their own heavily taxed disease spreading "reusable" grocery bags or otherwise paying the Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax UNDER PENALTY OF REVOLUTIONARY LAW!

One of the reasons Supervalu/Albertsons is doing so poorly is because something in their business model is costing them tens of millions each year. I attempted to get on board and fix it for them in 2007, but they chose to go a different route.

Are you talking about the laundromat next to Albertson's? Nice only if you like the tiny & expensive place for laundry! You must be one of the can collecting, cig butt picking, begging for change sucking on 40oz all sitting daily at that laundromat...

I have never seen so many ignorant, racist and uninformed posts in one place.

The Albertson in Culver City just closed. It was one of the closest supermarkets to Loyola Marymount University. Now we have to go the overpriced Ralph's market.

I don't know where you live but since it appears that you know so much about the so called scum hanging about Long Beach then maybe you are part of the scum that hangs out there otherwise you wouldn't know ever detail about their lives.

The millions that supervalu/albertsons is losing every year stems from the overpriced loan they took out for billions of dollars to buy albertsons in 2006 . That is one of the reasons they fired their top dog recently . Because he did not re-finance that loan at a much better rate years ago . The loan has been refinanced recently . That is one major thing that is attracting potential buyers for supervalu now . Those tens of millions in lost money from shelling it out to the banks over the years is keeping them from lowering their prices as quickly as they wanted to .Ultimately they will turn things around . I work for albertsons and theft is cripplng alot of the stores that hang on the fringe of profitability . The loss numbers are staggering . They range from beer to candy and eye liner . People steal detergent to carts full of expensive meats all the time . If you like a store in your hood give them your business and dont them off .
