That's right... if you want, you can ask the guy in the meat department to cut you a steak at your desired thickness. He'll do it and throw a price tag on it for you. That's why he's there. Like ferretkona says, the prepackaged stuff is there so you can just grab a slab and go.

You are getting mad because someone outside this country is accomplashing their American dream???
What if Vallarta was owned by a white family??
would you feel the same way??
If other supermarkets can't compete with Vallarta then so be it.

I love Vallarta! I buy vegetables and fruit there, because they're so much cheaper than the regular chains (Vons, Ralphs, etc.). I also love their freshly baked rolls. I don't see that adding a Vallarta to your neighborhood does anything other than provide a great grocery shopping alternative. In fact, I wish there was one closer to me.

agreed!! This is ignorant to say that just because a store is cheaper it will attract Hispanics. I shop at the Dollar Food Store.. sometimes I shop at European Supermarkets and have bought 75 dollar caviar which weighs about 220grams.

Does that make me rich or poor then?

I have no problems with them. They do have a very clean and neat appearance, at there Oxnard store anyway. Also at the Oxnard store they will drop you off at your home when you are done shopping. Not a big deal for most of us that drive, but in my area there are a lot of older shoppers and many that don't have cars that appreciate the service. I am also for anyone that can make a success of themselves. We live in a market economy. If you can succeed then so much better for you.

I'm surprised there's none down here yet. Its not like there's a lack of potential customers.

I miss the Vallarta stores...the closets thing in Phoenix is Food City...But Food cities tend to be small and dirty. In fact, Vallarta puts Food City to shame.

Time for Vallarta to expand East into the Phoenix area.

I think that what the original poster failed to realize is that the store came into the community to cater to the people that were already there, not the other way around. Vallarta markets don't spring up anywhere until there is a sufficient Latino population in that area, like most of the San Fernando Valley.

These markets are there because they offer things that other markets don't, and they generally do so at lower prices. If Vons and Ralphs offered these things at the same prices, Vallarta would not need to come into the community. In much the same way, there are Korean and Philipino markets in other parts of the L.A. area that cater to the communities around them.

I actually like to shop in these type of stores because I can find good deals on some of the things I want to purchase, and quite often they are the only place around that carry some of these things.
