Visit the Vons in the El Camino Shopping Center, the place is a dump. Old products on the shelf, dimly lit, crummy staff.....no longer shop there. Go to Ralphs at the Commons if you want to see an amazing market. Also, Smart and Final in Woodland HIlls trumps Vons 10 fold.
Bad management, bad stores.

Shop at Hughes or Alpha Beta or Lucky's for groceries. Go to Kinney for your shoes. Bank at Security Pacific and fill up your tank with Ethel. Surfs up, Hang Ten. Pamela Sue Martin sure is a fox.

You have to be real stupid to pay .25 for a lime at Vons' when you can buy 3 lbs. for $1.00 at Vallarta and so on.

Yeah, my grandfather used to go there to pick up a couple of sixers of Hamm's Beer and if he couldn't get that he'd settle for Blatz.

Truth, we are old. I used to shopped at Zodys in Burbank, MW in Topanga Plaza, eat at Copper Penny in Hollywood when cruising Sunset Blvd. I worked for United California Bank b4 it became FIB. Remember the .50 theater in Burbank 2 or 3 blocks from Zodys?

How about a CASE of Schaefer's for $2.99 with an instant rebate at the register for $2.99!! Free beer, if you were able to drink it. Nasty-tasting stuff, as I recall.
