More than 100 shoppers woke up early or altered their morning routines to be on hand for the grand opening of the Sprouts Farmers Market in La Cañada Flintridge Wednesday. The opening came two years after the announcement that the former Sport Chalet Sportland building at 920 Foothill Blvd. was going to be replaced by a Henry's supermarket. A year later, Henry's merged with Sprouts, an Arizona-based chain, delaying plans for the new store. Sprouts operates more than 100 stores in California, Arizona and Colorado, and has stores in Pasadena and Burbank.

The Ralphs grocery store on Glendale Avenue will be closing next month, a company spokesperson confirmed Tuesday. The store, which has operated at 1010 N.

The horror! What unbearable hardships we must endure to bring our own bags to the grocery store (the same people that drive around the parking lot three times because they must park within crawling distance of the front door). How blind we all are to the opulence of our cherished American lifestyle. Take a look around. We are the only country where most residents don't bring their own bags to the store. We like to pride ourselves on how tough we are, yet this microscopic effort is enough to set some people into a frenzy of indignation.

There is perhaps no activity I love more than spending time in an ethnic grocery store. I would take going to one of these spectacular spaces filled to the brim with products and characters you won't find anywhere else on a Friday night over doing something perhaps a bit more normal like seeing a movie or having dinner. This wasn't always the case. I used to hate them with a vengeance when I was younger, cringing every time my mother would insist on going to them during her weekly grocery shopping and bringing me along.

Glendale is set to become the next major city in Los Angeles County to ban plastic bags at grocery stores after City Council members on Tuesday were unanimous in their support of the new law. “It's a no-brainer,” said Councilman Dave Weaver. “It's inevitable. It's got to happen. We're just going to join in the crowd.” Glendale will be following in the footsteps of cities that have enacted similar rules, including Los Angeles, Pasadena and Laguna Beach. But Councilwoman Laura Friedman said the city shouldn't stop at grocery stores, suggesting that the ban be extended to other retailers in the future.

Glendale could become the next major city in Los Angeles County to ban plastic bags at grocery stores after the City Council takes up the matter at its meeting Tuesday night. It's a proposal the city's been mulling over for years, but that only now has come back in the form of an ordinance. Glendale's proposed ban is modeled off a countywide ban that took effect in 2011, but would go a step further by including farmer's markets and all city-sponsored events, as well as any event held on city property.

Every week last summer in Armenia, I walked up the street named after a celebrated Russian author to my local grocer. It was always a hot day, and the grocer was always dressed in a cut-off T-shirt, sometimes hauling in fruit, sometimes dangling a cigarette in this mouth, but always ready for a chat. If my appearance didn't give away the fact that I wasn't a local, my accent certainly did. Maybe that made talking to me more intriguing, but between laundry detergent and the best apricots I have ever tasted, he would ask about where I came from, and what I thought about living in Yerevan as he totaled up my bill.
