I love Vallarta Supermarkets. In the San Fernando Valley, there is always one within 3-4 miles of each other, and I never had a problem with it. In fact, I usually go shopping there for spices, special cuts of meats, bollilos (Mexican rolls..these are way too good) and other Mexican baked goods. They are starting to have competitors in the East Valley called Superior, but they still haven't reached the popularity as Vallarta.

well, interesting topic. From a current employee point of view, I would have to agreed to a certain point, Vallarta does have an attracting store, I might as well go a little bit further with the topic,

first off, I'm a minority of another race, who works for one of the stores. I have travel through many of the stored located throughout California. One thing I hate the most is how it only caters to the liw income community, especially, the Hispanic community. You will never dare see a Vallarta Supermarket in a medium or higher class neighbor. I do see pretty much of how the store run, in and out, internal operations, delivery, backdoor secrets, and sales.

Based on my experience and information I have seen, Vallarta caters to the Hispanic community for a very good reason, ands it's because of revenue. 70-80% gross revenue is from welfare recipients, money that hard workers pay to give to ours. I can stand in front a any registers, in any store, and an average. 6-7 out of 10 customers will pay either through EBT,WIC or other welfare assistance from our government.

The only winners in all these stores are the owners, because at the end, it's technically federal government funded.


Now, is that right or wrong, to me...it makes me sick.
I can go on about how the store is but that's another day..

Absolutely agree. Vallarta sucks. Taxpayer money goes to these people who end up using federal aid to buy food at Vallarta, and they spend their actual income on new TVs and computers.
