Karen Smith has been on both sides of the cash register at the Super Kmart in Aliso Viejo. She used to work the graveyard shift at the store, but on a recent Thursday at 1:30 a.m. she was there as a customer. "We came in to get boxes because we're moving," said Smith, 26, who lives nearby in Laguna Niguel. Besides, she said, her 2-year-old daughter, Amanda, was wide awake: "She had tummy trouble, gas. She couldn't sleep."

The opening of Super Kmart Centers in Anaheim and La Habra this week is drawing a negative response from a small group of local union members. Super Kmart officials have said that the two stores, each about twice the size of a typical Kmart, are generating more than 1,500 jobs in Orange County.

The first Super K mart Center in California will soon be built in the city, officials announced this week. Council members voted unanimously Thursday to approve development plans for the store, which promises to employ 300 people and generate $35 million a year in taxable sales revenue, company and city officials said. Two months ago, the council managed to persuade K mart officials to choose the city for the state's first super-store.

With the promise of new sales tax revenue dangling before them, Ventura City Council members on Monday will consider hiring a consultant to analyze plans for a mega-K mart on Victoria Avenue. The consultant, if hired by the city, would measure the project's long-term profitability against the developer's request for a waiver of $1.5 million in city fees. Those fees normally would go into city coffers for reducing problems with traffic and air quality.

Police are asking the public for help in their search for a robber who usually targets car parts stores and has struck seven times in the last month, including twice in Anaheim. The robber typically shows a clerk a handgun tucked into his waistband and then calmly waits for the money, Lt. Ted LaBahn said. In one case, the robber spent almost an hour in a store before robbing it, he said. "This one is calm and cool," LaBahn said. "He's about the coolest of anybody I've heard of.
