A day after two Northridge teen-agers were shot to death in an early morning robbery of a Subway sandwich shop, other franchise owners in the San Fernando Valley said Monday that a requirement to keep their stores open late makes them prime targets for thieves. Subway officials acknowledged that some store owners might be edgy about staying open until 2 a.m. on weekends, but added that the company allows shops to close early if business is slow or the risk of robbery is high.

Used to be that when you got hungry you drove to the grocery store, filled your cart with items and headed to the checkout counter. But supermarkets are doing more to ease hunger pangs inside their stores. The latest example is Smith's Food & Drug Centers, which is opening fast-food restaurants in its locations. Hungry consumers will have their choice of pizza, tacos, hoagies and fried chicken.

Royal Ahold, Europe's third-largest supermarket company, agreed to buy U.S. Foodservice Inc. for $3.6 billion to become a supplier of food to U.S. sports stadiums, restaurants and other businesses. The Dutch owner of the Giant and Stop & Shop chains would pay $26 a share in cash, a 42% premium to U.S. Foodservice's closing price Monday, and assume $925 million in debt. The purchase of the No. 2 U.S. food distributor gives Ahold immediate access to a $150-billion-a-year market.

LYNN TAYLOR, Hacienda Heights I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I spotted this sign while driving through South El Monte. Is this the Subway sandwich shops' latest advertising campaign, promoting food stamps? A review of the Subway menu inside indicated that it would cost about $15 to $20 to feed a family of four. But a family of four along with their neighbors could be fed on that amount if the shopping were done at any local supermarket.
