Just as pressure builds on the grocery workers, the toll on the supermarkets keeps climbing by millions of dollars a day, especially now that Thanksgiving has arrived and Christmas is approaching. The holiday period represents about 10% of annual sales for the three chains in the labor dispute. The companies -- Albertsons Inc., Kroger Co.'s Ralphs and Safeway Inc.'s Vons and Pavilions -- are together losing $40 million a week in sales to a group of eight smaller chains, including Stater Bros.

California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer said Monday that he would investigate whether supermarket companies violated antitrust laws by agreeing to share profits and losses during the grocery workers' strike. His announcement came as the United Food and Commercial Workers union and the three companies prepared to return to the bargaining table and as the effects of a week-old Teamsters sympathy strike rippled through stores in Southern California.

John's Food King, a Main Street grocery store that has served the Old Town neighborhood for nearly half a century, received City Council approval this week to remain open until 2 a.m. Monday's decision came over the objections of several Old Town residents and one council member who argued that an earlier closing time should be mandated for a store so near homes. The action also sustains a January Planning Commission decision that granted John's Food King the 2 a.m. closing time.

Four months after developers hoping to build a 26-acre shopping mall in Walnut began meeting with residents to hammer out a compromise on the project, negotiations appear to have stalled. "We're still insisting on our demands and Vestar (Development Co.) and Shea (Business Properties) have made a few concessions," said resident and project opponent Anita Flores. "But the concessions are next to nothing, compared to those on our list, mainly the size of the store. They refuse to downsize."

Against the din of rattling earth-graders, a celebration was held Tuesday to mark progress in the construction of a new regional shopping center for Anaheim Hills and Yorba Linda. Developers of the Anaheim Hills Festival center say their $100-million project may be the biggest of its kind underway in Southern California. That loses a little luster, however, when measured against the weak state of the economy: County retail construction has screeched to a virtual halt from the robust 1980s.
