Re:

The second store did become a Vons for a very short while. My recollection is that it closed in the early 90's, when the new Albertsons, and Food 4 Less opened down off Highland Springs and the 10. And the Safeway / Vons was where the Autozone and Goodwill store is. You can see the arched roof (alm...

Re: Max Foods Montebello Closing

Returned to the center. Office Depot is in their new quarters. Feels like a "Super-Kinko's"! What was in the site they are in now? Peeked in the old Office Depot. Are the vents you are referencing the large rectangular thing on the back wall? Comically, people kept telling me they moved ac...

Re: Fedco

Recent COSTCO magazine discussed how COSTCO began with Fedco roots.

Bit of nostalgia...today I put on my driveway an old couch to be picked up by the trash company.

I bought it at Fedco around 1994!

Re: Circuit City to Liquidate remaining 500 stores.

The Palm Desert CA store was built...and never opened. It is on Monterey Avenue. The sign is on the street...and the brand new store is simply sitting there vacant.

Re: Vons stores with old interiors

Yes quite a few Vons stores still have the old interiors, here in Simi Valley the huge Vons on Cochran and Erringer (former GEMCO) still has the original interior from '93. On the other hand, what's odd is that the Vons in Ojai got the new lifestyle trim but still has older lighting. This was a for...

Re: Original Jack in the Box sites

Huntington Beach CA
Pacific Coast Highway @ First
Former site is now a Dairy Queen.

Driving along PCH from HB to Long Beach...there are at least Jack's! They truly exploded in the area during the late 60s!
