Ralphs and its parent company, Kroger, will face three additional misdemeanor charges for false advertising and scanner overcharging, according to the Daily Breeze at the store at 3300 W. Slauson Ave. Arraignment is set to take place on July 29th. That same day, Ralphs and Kroger will be arraigned on the initial 62 misdemeanor counts that were brought up following an investigation by the City Attorney's office that included test purchases made at 14 area Ralphs stores. A company spokesperson said Ralphs is conducting their own investigation, and "will take corrective actions as necessary."
