SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES! - San Diego

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES!

Wal-Mart: Wal-Mart? What's that? Discount Stores Review

It's the USA biggest (am I right?) discount supermarket chain. They sell everything there but no luxury or just more expensive (better quality) goods. In more and more Wal-Mart supermarkets (but NOT all) they sell food as well - look for sign: FOOD or FOOD MARKET.




Services in the Wal-Mart at Dennery Road, San Diego:

Garden Center

Gift Registry

Maternity

McDonald's

Pharmacy

Photo Center

1 Hour Photo Center

Portrait Studio

Tire & Lube

Vision Center

NO FOOD but VONS supermarket just next to this Wal-Mart.




What else? It seems that they support local community and local military families as you can see on my picture.

What to buy: Telephone cards, batteries, video casettes and films for your camera, sun glasses.

What to pay: Look for discounts :-).

Address: 710 Dennery Road; San Diego, CA 92154

Directions: From I-805 take exit Palm Ave., drive Palm Ave. east and turn first right: it's Dennery Road, VONS and Wal-Mart on the right hand.

VONS  PHARMACY - San Diego

VONS PHARMACY

Vons pharmacy: Expensive medicines? Grocery Stores Review

Do you need any medicines? You can go to Vons pharmacy. They provide your pet supplies as well, both non-prescription and prescription products, including vaccines, vitamins and heartworm medications.

Expensive medicines?
Hmm... take a trolley to San Isidro and walk to Tijuana, Mexico. There are a lot of pharmacies (some opened 24h) just for visitors from the USA ---> they must be less expensive there, am I wrong? But what about their quality?

What to buy: Medicines.

What to pay: Hmmm... expensive area.

VONS  SUPERMARKET - San Diego

VONS SUPERMARKET

VONS: What is VONS? Grocery Stores Review

VONS is a Southern Californian discount food supermarket chain. My recomendation for driving travellers looking for any food.

HISTORY
Downtown Los Angeles was essentially a small town when Charles Von der Ahe opened his 20-foot wide Groceteria on the corner of 7th and Figueroa in 1906 with $1200 in savings.

The most explosive growth occurred during the 1970's when Vons branched out to 159 stores with 16,000 employees, making it firmly the #1 grocery retailer in Southern California. Today the Vons operation, which includes Pavilions stores, is now a part of the Safeway family of companies. Vons stretches from San Diego to Fresno, from Clark County, Nevada to the Pacific. It's 325 stores serve millions of Southern Californians and Nevadans.


What to buy: I bought some food for my travel towards Arizona.

What to pay: Get free VONS CLUB CARD to get discounts.
