at its first Roanoke location this
morning.

Meanwhile the store's competition
-- Kroger...

ENG#= VO NAT


VO NAT has had a ten percent jump in
profits...But the company says it would
have been better if it wasn't for labor
unrest and rising costs.

More than 700 workers walked off
the job for about two days in April --
and the company's still negotiating
contracts in Southern California.

The rising cost of dairy goods
also hurt the bottom line -- but
profits were better than expected.

Many nearby residents are worried
about traffic and parking.

Last night the city held a public
meeting at the high school to address
any issues.

City leaders say a typical football
game should attract roughly two

thousand fans.

As a result, they believe there's
enough parking on site.

Some residents clearly don't buy
that, others are taking a wait and see
approach.

One way the city plans to discourage
street parking is to restrict access
into the new stadium.

The city will also use extra police
officers during the games to direct
traffic.

Sherman Lea and Brian Wishneff
held a conference to address parking
concerns of downtown merchants.

They also want to eliminate the
proposed parking increases for the rest
of the year.

The two would like to take money
from parking fines to fund the valet
parking service.

They're also calling for shuttles
for low-wage employees and reduced bulk

the downtown area.
