The Los Angeles Planning Commission on Thursday approved a zone change to allow a $20-million expansion of Sherman Oaks Fashion Square mall. The decision paved the way for the proposal to be considered by the City Council's planning and land use Management committee, and the full council, most likely within the next three weeks. The project would increase the mall space by nearly 20%.

With the sun breaking through after a storm and Christmas less than two weeks away, shoppers dutifully trooped to the region's malls on Sunday -- though apparently with less free-spending enthusiasm than anxious merchants would like. There was plenty of elbow room at Sherman Oaks Fashion Square, despite signs offering steep discounts. "We're Dropping Our Pants," said a sign pledging 30% off the price of dungarees at Lucky Brand Jeans. Other store windows promised deep discounts ("50% Off Entire Store!"

Robert Rayner, a temporary security guard at the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square mall, was taking his dinner break, moving his motorcycle when he heard over his radio that thieves had just broken into a mall jewelry store. He stopped, turned and saw the suspects jump into a car and speed off. Without thinking, without putting on a helmet or taking off his backpack stuffed with books, he jumped on his bike in pursuit. But he lost them in the parking lot.

A tail-rotor problem forced the pilot to ground the A-Star chopper on the second-level parking structure of Sherman Oaks Fashion Square, at Woodman Avenue and Riverside Drive, said Sgt. Bob Green of the LAPD Air Support Division.

Three robbers wielding handguns took $500,000 worth of jewelry from a Sherman Oaks store, stuffing necklaces, bracelets, pins and rings in bags as customers and clerks looked on. It was the second robbery of expensive jewelry from a department store at the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square in recent months, Los Angeles police said. No shots were fired, and no one was injured in the robbery of Bullock's. Police Sgt. Don Holmes said the three forced a clerk to unlock the jewelry case.

Community leaders in Sherman Oaks say they welcome the news that Bloomingdale's has signed a deal to come into Sherman Oaks Fashion Square mall. The deal is contingent upon the city approving the mall's plans, which shopping center officials filed last Wednesday. Sherman Oaks Fashion Square, located on Riverside Drive between Hazeltine and Woodman avenues, wants to expand the 190,000-square-foot Broadway store site--which Bloomingdale's would occupy--by 40,000 square feet.

Opposition is heating up against a proposed major expansion of the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square mall. A group of 700 residents who live near the shopping mall has distributed 700 flyers decrying the project. Tybe Drum, president of the Sherman Oaks Property Owners Assn., said that in the next week her group will be sending out another 300 flyers, which urge residents to oppose the project at a public hearing scheduled for Sept. 26.

Magnin CEO Joe Cicio's reasoning for his failure resulting in the closings of various Magnin and Bullock's stores is hilarious. Having grown up in the Valley, I practically lived at Sherman Oaks Fashion Square. No matter how economic matters ebbed and flowed, I was always faithful to Bullock's and Magnin since they always had the coolest, latest and best-priced. Then one day (I swear it happened in one day) the store that had kept my charge card maxed out went from a fashion wonderland to a wasteland with row after endless row of cheap knit separates.

On July 6 at 5 p.m., my father, 72, was mugged in broad daylight right outside Bullock's at Sherman Oaks Fashion Square. With him were my two children, 11 and 5. They witnessed the event and when they ran into Bullock's, yelling and crying, no one helped them. People just looked away. I have been told that this is not uncommon at this or other malls. I cannot understand why there are no signs warning people that these incidents happen frequently or why there isn't a larger security staff.

When Bloomingdale's made its Southland debut in November 1996, it did so with fanfare and a panache that lured legions of spenders. Now, 16 months after the heady grand openings, there are signs that some of the bloom may be off Bloomies' rose. Retail chains don't provide sales reports on specific stores.

Whoever wrote the kiddie jingle "It's Cool at the Mall" must have hung at Fashion Square--coolest of the cool, baddest of the bad, a Sh'oaks mall, y'all. Fashion Square's got more juice than Jamba, more stars than the Walk of Fame. It's Valley-style--an oxymoron, true, but Fashion Square is doing its part to awaken the Valley lasses out of their denim-overall-shorts-wearing stupor by whispering, "You do have options."
