Alan's market switched ownership and started bringing in produce from local farmers markets and slashed the prices of the wines and select basics. The wine selection is pretty amazing for a small corner store. The wines have wine spectator reviews for people that are less savvy, and the owner always helps out with great recs. The butcher carries local, organic meats, eggs & chicken however the meat is very expensive. On hot days, you can pop in and grab ice cream from the Manhattan Beach Creamery. Alan carries a wide selection of holistic dog and cat products, meeting the needs of the local residents that live up to the dog town name).
There are place that promises that they have everything that a person might need in their store. Apparently this place has everything that I need and thank God for that.
Finding a specific item in here is really a breeze. The isles are so organized and the people that work in here make sure that everything is in the right order.
