Hailey's Novel Diary – 4/10/17

How important are grocery stores in this story? Practically irrelevant. But I know pretty much nothing about grocery stores in Southern California. I've spent more time in Santa Monica than any other part of Los Angeles, but I can't tell you anything about the grocery stores. I vaguely remember a Whole Foods. It was simply never important to me while I was there.

Most of the stores seem to be large chains that are mostly located in the western United States, and smaller independent bodegas. There's definitely no Byerly's, Kowalski’s or Seward Co-op.

From what I can tell, Ralphs seems to be the king of the San Fernando Valley. Vons is what they call Safeway in California. Gelson's is the Dean & DeLuca of Los Angeles.

The amount of time I've spent looking into this is ridiculous, especially when you consider that it doesn't affect the story at all. I could have just had them go to the grocery store, but then I realized that I didn't know anything about what that's like in Los Angeles.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
