School me on this place...looks like the closest location to me is on Blanco near Basse. Is it worth a 10 mile drive?
I've only been to the one off Evers, behind the cruddy dollar theater. It was clean and had tons of Goya products. They had a fresh bakery, a meat shop, produce, and they also sold prepared foods in a cafe at the front. It's just a very small grocery store. I am sure it serves a niche market but I'm not part of that demographic. I did buy a tortilla warmer and then I left. There wasn't a whole lot of English going down in there, which is fine by me, but I struggle with Spanish most days so.....there's that.

What Sapphire said. La Michoacana strongly focuses on serving the Hispanic population (I may even venture to say the most recent immigrants) with hispanic products, both authentic and fake. My wife swears by their seasoned ribs and we also get Mexican baked goods, tortillas, Mexican spices, softdrinks, etc. Unless you are looking for that kind of stuff and your closest HEB doesn't carry it, I'd say it's not worth the drive.

So, Hope this doesn't anger the bee hive, but, I saw a job posting on the Trader Joe's website. The listing mentions San Antonio.

Love it! I was at a TJ in Cali a few days ago, and whomever said it's all the same is delusional. They have a great mix of products, decent prices, and excellent service. I think they'd be a fine addition.

Huh?

The dynamics are already changing and have been changing, which is why Trader Joe's is entering the market.
