Wienermobile

License plateSeven-year-old Julia Garcia wasn't the only person to take a photo of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile during its Sunday stop at Murieta Plaza, but she might have been the youngest. It was quite an attraction, with slamming car brakes and people drawn by some unseen force to the wheeled wiener, where, we swear, some of them sang Oscar Mayer commercial jingles. (Because you asked, the vehicle is 27 feet long, 11 feet high and weighs seven tons.) At the lunch hour, the Murieta Market by Raley's people, being good hosts, wheeled out a bunch of hotdogs for everyone's enjoyment. At the star attraction they were handing out Wienermobile whistles and postcards. Click photos for larger images Read more » about You wish you were an Oscar Mayer wiener...

Friday evening, after a pre-opening gathering for employees at the new Raley’s in Murieta Plaza, store leader Steve Thomas joked that, hey, maybe there will be people waiting at the door when the store opens in the morning.

Market sign

[Updated Sunday in comments: It's official] The rumors have been constant, and while we waited for official word from Raley's HQ, someone inside the Murieta Plaza store (probably tired of answering the question) posted this sign in the window. It says the opening is 7 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 14. And it's on brown butcher paper, so it must be true. Photo by Frank Falusi Read more » about Sign in store window announces opening
