Los Angeles magazine has an interesting story entitled, “From Aldi to Vons, How Grocery Stores Are Our Connection to L.A.—and Ourselves,” in which the author ponders what happens when a local grocery store - even a modest one that has been around since the fifties - closes.

“It’s a question of suddenly incomplete civic identity—a nagging gap in one’s everyday mental equilibrium,” the author writes. “Where we shop for groceries is more important than we often realize in helping us feel connected to a place.”
