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.

The Super Bowl of shopping kicks off this weekend as Southern Californians prep for Thanksgiving, but it could be a turkey for the biggest supermarket chains. The supermarket strike has disrupted holiday routines for shoppers -- and for grocery stores that usually rely on sales of all the trimmings for as much as 10% of their annual totals. "The labor dispute has turned things on its head," said Terry O'Neil, spokesman for the Ralphs chain, which is owned by Kroger Co.

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."

When the Vons Pavilions supermarket, anchor store of Newport Beach's Via Lido Plaza, reopens today after a five-month renovation, the store will be the centerpiece of a rejuvenated shopping center and also one of a kind in the 325-unit Vons chain. Shopping center owner Fritz Duda, who is also a Vons Co. board member, persuaded the supermarket chain to forgo Pavilions' standard color scheme.
