It appears that the Glendale Galleria has transformed itself into a shopping destination for the teenage demographic forcing the more mature among us to travel to the Santa Anita Mall that offers venues such as J.Jill, Talbots, Coldwater Creek, and Easy Spirit. This seems counterproductive to bringing people to Glendale to shop. Marie Fish Glendale

Robert Chacon Glendale Galleria was one of more than 400 malls across the country that celebrated Old Glory by participating in a synchronized flag-raising ceremony Tuesday morning.

Penney marking the 99th anniversary of Flag Day -- formally established by President Harry Truman in 1949.

The city's new shopping cart law has yet to take effect, but it is already paying dividends. The law, which was passed in May and will take effect on Jan. 1, 2006, will penalize businesses that lose more than five carts per day with misdemeanor charges and a $1,000 fine per violation. It requires all city stores providing shopping carts for their customers to institute some type of containment system or policy to keep the carts on their property. At the time of the law's passage, nine stores already had either electronic containment systems or had box clerks help customers to their cars to retrieve the carts, said Suzana Delis, administrative analyst for the city's Neighborhood Services Department.

My wife and daughter took my grandson shopping the other day. It was a disaster. He's only 4 months old and has already decided that a shopping mall is a place of torture. As I understand it, he began protesting the moment he entered the mall and did not stop until, two hours later, he was strapped into his car seat and headed home. That's my boy! I didn't teach him that. He came by it naturally, as in natural instinct. If he could speak, here is what I think the little fellow would say: "This (mall)

Shopping trip may not be necessary There has been previous commentary in the Glendale News-Press about shopping in Glendale (“Americana could use an amendment,” Mailbag, Dec. 24). Whether it is the crowds, Black Friday or pre- and after-Christmas shopping, it is hectic to shop at the malls. Some people are not finding what they are looking for and perhaps are not too happy with having to pay for parking after not finding the right products, such as when shopping at the Americana.

Perhaps it’s a good thing that the commercial for the “Buy Glendale” campaign is being reworked (“Agency criticizes commercial,” July 9). Even though, as a business owner, I would love extra advertising for my business, I hesitate to say that this campaign is actually going to do that. No one seems to “get” what buying local is all about. Certainly, the Glendale News-Press does not, or apparently only feels that using a picture of the Glendale Galleria is typical of what the “Buy Glendale” means.

Rima Shah If Esther Kim could afford it, she would be happy to buy all of her holiday gifts closer to home. The La Canada Flintridge resident plans to shop for smaller presents for her friends here but will do her bigger shopping in the malls to fetch better discounts. "That may be important to wealthy people," said Kim, referring to how keeping shopping local helps the area's tax base. "But I come from a moderately [wealthy] family. Just because you live in La Canada doesn't mean you're wealthy.

Robert Shaffer GLENDALE -- Leslie Francis once bought a CD online, but she isn't doing any of her Christmas shopping on the Internet this year. The advantages provided in shopping from home cannot make up for the intangibles, she said. "I don't like the parking and the lines, but the decorations and Christmas spirit are what makes it," she said at the Galleria on Monday. While experts and businesses themselves are reporting an increased use of shopping by computer this holiday season, all agree the Internet will not put malls out of business any time soon.

DOWNTOWN ? The Americana at Brand this week retreated on its free weekday parking offer, reinstituting daily fees ahead of its evening Christmas tree lighting event and kickoff to the holiday shopping season. The shopping center will offer free parking with validation for Americana shoppers, but decided to revert to its original payment structure to prevent any overcrowding of its parking structures, said Jennifer Gordon, vice president of Caruso Affiliated, which owns the mixed-use behemoth.

Business owners along Honolulu Avenue in Montrose are working with Glendale public works staff to remedy an ongoing trash issue that entails illegal dumping, overflowing bins and stores throwing away their garbage in the waste units of neighboring shops. So far, the city has hired Jeffery Camera of Balliet, Camera & Howe Consultants, who gave a presentation on Thursday to the board of directors of the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. that included findings and photos. Many businesses have trash bins in their rear parking lots that are used by nearby landscapers and gardeners for dumping waste such as tree stumps, contributing to the overflow, Camera said.

Members of the Montrose Park Shopping Assn. will get back $50 if they pay their annual assessment on time next year, a gesture that comes on the heels of significantly improved revenue for the business improvement district . The board of directors voted unanimously Thursday that all of the more than 100 member storefronts would be eligible for the rebate if payments are made by a January 2015 deadline. A majority of business owners pay the minimum of $190, while only eight of them, such as major banks, pay more than $3,000, said Dale Dawson, owner of Mountain Rose Gifts and business administrator for the association.

As the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. has improved its financial footing over the past few years , board members who control the business promotions group are considering a one-time rollback of fees they charge to local businesses. The fee break would give some respite to owners still struggling to bounce back from the protracted recession and restore confidence in the business improvement district, Board President Andre Ordubegian said at a meeting on Thursday. The board has been working to improve its reputation among its membership since former Councilman John Drayman was indicted for allegedly embezzling more than $304,000 from the shopping park's weekly farmer's market , which he helped run. Drayman is currently out on bail awaiting his criminal trial.

When Kirk Gelsinger, owner of Zeke's Smokehouse and Amber Road, a gourmet grocery store, was on the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. board of directors in the 1980s, the business promotions group had roughly $25,000 to work with. After Gelisnger got elected to the board after a decades-long hiatus, the shopping association's executive director announced the business improvement district was budgeting $435,000 for its 2014 expenditures. “I hope that I can continue that,” Gelsinger said, noting that over the years, the board has ironed out some of the age-old problems, including increasing oversight of the weekly farmer's market, which provides more than a quarter of the revenue for the business improvement district.
