Earlier in the decade, The Times had a contest to rename the San Fernando Valley. Among the wry proposals were Suburbank and Beige-Air. But the winner was Twentynine Malls. We know that shopping pre-dates the settlement of the Valley, but it is here that shopping acquired celebrity. Given how much of the entertainment industry is Valley-based, it is probably inevitable that local institutions, including the dozen or so area malls, have a tendency to become full-fledged cultural icons.

In a noisy arcade on a recent Saturday morning, Benjamin Osuyos expertly pounded the buttons of his favorite video game, pummeling superhuman foes with steely precision.

Imagine conveniently hopping from trendy coffeehouse to movie theater and classy restaurant, all during a Sunday-evening stroll through a pedestrian shopping village in this land of tract homes and malls. Traditionally, residents of the north San Fernando Valley have traveled in excess of 20 miles to such places as Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade or Old Town Pasadena to enjoy that kind of ambience.

With five shopping days left until Christmas, malls and department stores across the San Fernando Valley have beefed up their security operations to prevent encounters with those all too familiar holiday visitors: shoplifters and robbers. Along with local police patrols, security teams at shopping centers have instituted their own bike patrols, hired extra personnel and posted private security officers on mall roofs to scan parking lots and create more of a security presence.
