This Gelsons is great. They have beautiful flowers, and even found some Melissa & Doug toys which was perfect for a birthday party gift that I hadn't shopped for. Marisol was very helpful.
Recently redone ... not too much differently than it was prior to the remodel however ... it has the best produce in town and really the only acceptable deli selection. Parking can be tight at peak hours. The kids love the small carts and balloons that they get to come home with.
This is an older Kmart location but the building is large and usually stocked with all sale items as advertised. And if you can't find it there it's located near several other stores. Parking lot is busy.
500+ sodas. It's a family owned market when you can find any soda that was ever made. It's in the Highland Park area.
I originally heard about this place from an episode of Huell Howser's "California's Gold," so I made the pilgrimage. So much fun to wander aisles upon aisles of obscure, regional soda pops. I'm not even a soda drinker, but I had to purchase a few of the more unique ones, which could be made into stellar cocktails! They also have a great selection of hard-to-find candy. There's a deli counter here, too, if you're hankering for a sandwich.
This is an average Smart and Final with the same selection as others, but the lines can get really long and slow.
This place is very convenient for big box items without the need of a membership card. The best thing is that they have started to add more variety.
This place is not for the faint of heart. I recently signed up for a costco card because they had great deals on camping equipment, but beyond that, I'm not sure I can stomach what a zoo this place typically is!
I have been coming to this Costco for quite a few years now, and the service is pretty great. They always have new, unique products. Just wished the lines were not so long, but the prices are great.
Definitely the priciest supermarket in the neighborhood, but they do offer much better quality produce and deli items. I have used them for catering in the past and have always been impressed by the offerings. Love the "eyeshadow" lady at the deli counter who calls everyone "sweetheart." Lots of celeb sightings, too.
