VENTURA, Calif. -

After months of legal wrangling, a discount grocer opened its doors in Ventura.

WinCo Foods moved into a former Mervyns building on Telephone Road.

The opening was delayed by a couple of months when environmental groups filed suits over its signs and design.

Thursday, customers had a chance to shop.

WinCo has been described as an employee-owned store.

The company hired about 200 new employees for the Ventura store.

Some will work odd hours; the store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
