The Northridge Fashion Center, closed for 18 months because of the destruction left behind by the January, 1994, earthquake, will celebrate a quiet reopening today. Mall officials will not hold their grand opening ceremonies until Aug. 2, when 110 of the approximately 180 stores are ready for business. Today, 70 merchants are scheduled to open their doors at 10 a.m.

The Los Angeles Police Department opened a new office Monday at the Northridge Fashion Center to help deter crime at the mall. "The people who own the mall . . . and the Police Department realized that we needed a better facility to meet the increasing demand that crime was putting on us at the location," said Police Capt. Vance Proctor. Currently two police officers from the Devonshire Division are assigned to the mall, which is also patrolled by private security guards.

Almost 17 months since the Northridge earthquake, and after $25 million in repairs, J. C. Penney has finished rebuilding its store at the Northridge Fashion Center shopping mall. Just in time for its customers, guessed store manager Howard Couch. "There's people who have been waiting so long they truly have had to endure a great deal," said Couch, who was overwhelmed when the store opened Sunday for charge customers only. Hundreds of people were waiting at the door for the 10 a.m.

Had Charlotte Grossman seen it, those who knew her said, she would have chuckled at the blunder made Monday morning by city officials in Northridge as they tried to honor her memory. Councilman Hal Bernson stood on a recently completed bridge designed to ease traffic on Nordhoff Street. He dedicated the structure to the late Grossman, a Northridge merchant, but as he spoke, a few of the 60 people listening whispered that something was wrong.

Like jittery actors preparing for the adrenaline rush of opening night, the staff of the quake-battered Northridge Fashion Center spent Friday unpacking merchandise and putting other finishing touches on the mall scheduled to open next week. Between 70 and 80 of approximately 180 stores are expected to be ready when the doors open at 10 a.m. Monday, but marketing director Annette Bethers said that should not discourage eager shoppers from taking a look at the newly rebuilt shopping center.

Is Loss to the Community The death of Hollywood's Norton Halper on July 9 is a real loss to many residents of this city who have been threatened and intimidated by the awesome power of the Community Redevelopment Agency. Norton was a quiet, behind-the-scenes man who gave thousands of hours of his time each year to advise bewildered property owners, businesses and tenants who woke up one morning to find themselves on the CRA's hit list of properties to be condemned in the name of redevelopment.

For many, the time around the holidays is a stressful, energy-consuming period. For those who work long hours, it's even more hectic. So who has time to make their own holiday gifts, cute little crafts or fancy baked goods? Maybe if there was a way to do it in a time-saving manner, more people would be willing to learn. At least that's the theory among event coordinators at the Northridge Fashion Center.
