Vons in Plaza de La Cañada has reopened. How do we know that? Because there’s a banner stretched across the front of the building and smiles wide as the Arroyo Seco among the people who work there, apparently glad the dust has cleared and their store-beautification process is over.
Also, there was that full-page Vons ad that ran in last Thursday’s paper proclaiming the event would take place at 8 a.m. Sept. 10.
Misreading that ad, I thought the opening was on Saturday, not Friday. I further thought we should have a reporter document the occasion for us, so I sent out our new contributing writer, Hripsime (“Hrip” to her friends, she tells me, but once I get on a roll with her musical first name, I can’t stop myself until it’s all out) Moskovian.
