Raisin/Alpha Beta in Monterey Park

runchadrun wrote: "Atlantic Blvd, 1 block south of freeway, Monterey Park. I assume they are talking about the 10 freeway and not the 60, which wasn't completed in 1958.

In South Pasadena, VONS was one of the Safeways sold to VONS in '88. Since Pavilions is VONS's upscale concept, you would expect different options at the stores. Actually, the stores are across the street, not in the same shopping center. I guess in some cities, a supermarket company can own or oper...
