MEDIA CITY CENTER — Without the customary fanfare of a ribbon cutting, clothing retailer Loehmann's quietly opened its doors last week. Some shoppers milling around the floor on the store's first official day of business on Wednesday were surprised to see a Loehmann's in Burbank. "I didn't know they had one out here," said Van Nuys resident Angela Lopez, 35. "So I thought I'd pop in and look." Phasing in store operations through a preliminary "soft opening" before the official first day of business gives store employees the time to prepare for regular customer flow, said Ferdinando Forcellati, vice president of advertising for Loehmann's.

The Burbank store, at 325 N. San Fernando Road, is Wasteland’s fourth location, after stores in Los Angeles, Santa Monica and San Francisco, and sells mostly secondhand clothing from vintage and high-end designers.

A local club raised more than $1,200 for needy mothers at a garage sale Saturday that boasted thousands of children's items at bargain prices. More than 90 members of the Moms Club of Burbank donated 7,500 items of clothing - each of which was on sale for $1 - and roughly 75 strollers, cribs, high chairs and rocking horses to the garage sale.

For most Southern Californians, shopping for designer clothing and accessories, vintage and celebrity-owned jewelry, or unique collectibles and furniture would entail a heavily cash-or-credit-card-fortified trip to the Golden Triangle of Beverly Hills or the eclectic mix of shops that pepper L.A.'s West Side shopping districts on Beverly Boulevard and Melrose Avenue. For Burbankers (along with in-the-know visitors), a West Side trek for the aforementioned treasures at jet-set prices can be avoided by simply visiting the La Providencia Guild of Children's Hospital Los Angeles Thrift Shop on the corner of W. Burbank Boulevard and N. California Street.
