The Rite Aid store at the Americana at Brand may have closed, but the convenience store's corporate parent is still pursuing litigation against the mega-shopping center. Thrifty Payless Inc., Rite Aid's parent company, is suing Americana at Brand LLC in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming fraud because the property taxes and fees charged to Rite Aid substantially exceeded the Americana's estimates, according to court documents. Rite Aid spokeswoman Ashley Flower said via email on Tuesday that company officials made a “business decision” to close the store in the Americana at Brand on Aug. 24. “Despite our continuing efforts over several years and desire to do so, we were no longer able to continue operating at this location due to the exorbitant and ever increasing occupancy costs,” she said.

CITY HALL — The Los Angeles-based Museum of Neon Art could move into a vacant, city-owned building across from the Americana at Brand under a proposed agreement that, if successful, would represent one the largest cultural jolts to downtown in years. The City Council on Tuesday is scheduled to take up the proposed letter of intent, which would kick off formal negotiations with the niche museum for the space at 216 S. Brand Blvd. The vacant building, which once housed a Salvation Army branch and a Rite Aid, would afford the museum a new permanent space for its venerable collection of neon signs and art after using a temporary spot in downtown Los Angeles for roughly two years.

The Crescenta Valley Drug and Alcohol Prevention Coalition plans to host a "Prescription Drug Take-Back Day" today to combat the rise in pharmaceutical drug abuse. "There is an alarming trend of pharmaceuticals being abused to substitute for illicit drugs," said Glendale Police Officer Joe Allen in a statement. "We want to remove some of these unused, expired medications from people's shelves in order to minimize their abuse or misuse. " Getting rid of unused medicine cuts off an easy access point to drugs for teenagers who may be raiding their home medicine cabinets - or those in their friends' homes, said Coalition Executive Director Suzy Jacobs.

She’s rarely won anything — except once in a while a silent auction bid — and she didn’t enter a contest, so imagine her surprise when she got a call from a Rite Aid representative to let her know she’d just won a 2009 Chevy Malibu hybrid and a $3,000 gift card to the Rite Aid store. That was the experience for La Cañada mom and former schoolteacher Julie Olson, who was a bit skeptical when she received that Monday morning phone call a few weeks ago. “I truly didn’t believe it,” Olson said.

Large complex just doesn?t fit into area In reference to the article ?Pelanconi residents start their opposition early? (Friday): I am one of the residents across from the park. Although we are only one block long we do consider ourselves a single-family neighborhood and a 300-unit apartment does not fit into a residential neighborhood. As it is, both sides of Cleveland Road are always filled with cars belonging to people in the park. But they are gone at night. An apartment that large will add pollution, noise, traffic and parking will really be a nightmare.
