Liquor Barn, the San Leandro-based liquor discount retail chain, said Wednesday that it will move its headquarters to San Diego by May 1, a move that will result in layoffs of about 40 employees at its administrative offices in the San Francisco Bay Area. Executives at the 65-store chain also said they plan to open at least 22 new stores by 1993, nearly all in Southern California.

Meeting behind closed doors with musicians and San Diego Symphony officials on Wednesday, San Diego Mayor Maureen O'Connor attempted to resuscitate the virtually moribund labor relations that this week resulted in the cessation of orchestra operations. "They just kicked around some ideas," O'Connor spokesman Paul Downey said of the separate meetings. "Each of the sides had some ideas, and the mayor was simply there to facilitate it."

Liquor Barn, the California-based discount liquor chain, said Thursday that it was closing 19 of its stores, all in Southern California, and laying off 200 employees. The stores are profitable, Executive Vice President Lewis Silverberg said, but two things forced the move: First, lean economic times made it impossible for the chain to refinance some of its debt, and second, the leases on the buildings were worth more than the stores themselves.

A Superior Court judge postponed action Monday on San Diego City Councilwoman Abbe Wolfsheimer's lawsuit against her council colleagues over how their endorsements of ballot propositions should be signed. The delay is designed to give the city attorney's office more time to ponder this thorny legal dilemma: When one of the city attorney's clients (Wolfsheimer) sues another group of his clients (the mayor and the rest of the council), which side does he represent? Both? Neither?

John McEwan won't admit it, but he may be in the proverbial win-win situation. The scenario unfolds thusly: McEwan, the new president and chief executive officer of beleaguered Sun Savings & Loan Assn., last Friday reported that the thrift recorded a first-ever loss in 1984 of $5.8 million after writing off $8.9 million in bad loans. While the large write-offs halve Sun's net worth to about $6.3 million, they also wipe clean as many old-management mistakes as auditors will allow.
