Planning to go shopping? Better take along a credit card and a driver's license or plenty of cash. A growing number of stores in Philadelphia no longer allow customers to pay by check. This practice appears to be most rampant among boutique-style shops that sell trendy items that appeal to young males - high-priced designer suits, leather jackets and athletic footwear. At the Gallery, managers at stores such as Foot Locker, City Blue, High Energy, Camillion, Ronald Philip Ltd., Top of the Blue and Superstars say they're just trying to stem thousands of dollars in losses because of checks that bounce.

Kick out the guns. Run for life. Tell violence to take a walk. In other words, trade in those firearms for a $75 certificate that can get you a good pair of shoes or sneakers. Thanks to Foot Locker, the world's largest athletic-shoe retailer, that's the message of the Philadelphia Anti-Drug/Anti-Violence Network's fourth annual gun turn-in campaign, which began yesterday. "Guns make murder and mayhem something of a regular happening," network director James Mills said at a press conference kicking off the effort.

Justin Krik was 12 when he wore his brand-new Adidas Sambas to soccer practice for the first time. He was climbing the bleachers next to the soccer field when it happened: His left shoe suddenly split at the sole, catching his foot on the bleacher step. Justin fell forward, and his right leg ripped open at the shin - a gash it would take 50 stitches to close. "They called me from school, and by the time I got there he was all pressure-bandaged," said Miriam Krik, Justin's mother.

Burglars drove a car through a store display window yesterday, loaded the vehicle with thousands of dollars of sports clothes, and fled in what police believe is the fourth such "smash and grab" committed by the same people at a City Avenue shopping center. Cruising the Bala Cynwyd Shopping Center parking lot just after midnight yesterday, a police officer in an unmarked car saw a brown Buick with its tail end backed through the front window of the Foot Locker store. As the officer drove towards the scene, he saw a man get into the passenger seat, police said.

Despite following leads supplied by psychics and eyewitnesses, and a week of intensive searching, officials still have not located a King of Prussia man who has been missing in Rhode Island for nearly two weeks. A psychic told West Greenwich, R.I., police that the body of Erwin M. Wehner, 33, was at a junkyard inside a 1920s delivery truck. Another psychic said that Wehner was chopped up and buried behind a doughnut shop in West Greenwich. And an elderly woman reported seeing him hitchhiking on Interstate 95 in Rhode Island, carrying a sign saying he was bound for Florida.

Thirty-five years ago, it was common to see "whites only" signs in hotels, shops and restaurants. In some areas, blacks were required by law to ride in the back of the bus. You probably thought those American traditions ended with the civil rights movement, but the Foot Locker athletic shoe store chain has decided that separate and unequal is the way to go. Foot Locker, which has eight stores in Philadelphia and others in suburban ...

The parking lot at Governor's Square Mall on this August Saturday afternoon must be what it looks like outside Doak Campbell Stadium on Seminole Saturday nights. Just a few miles east of the Florida Capitol Complex, the mall's parking lot spaces disappear quicker than Charlie Ward used to escape the pocket. The food court is jammed, the arteries of its customers clogging with each bite, the shoppers pausing before their next assault. Walk a few steps and there it is, right next to Zales Jewelers: the Foot Locker where 11 Florida State football players, accompanied by several agents' representatives, did a little shopping and set off a series of revelations that have accompanied the Seminoles' 1993 national title, the first in their history.
