That's Super King Market in Claremont. Soft opening was on Friday, Nov. 4, grand opening is scheduled for 11-11-11. Many on this board are familiar with their other 3 stores. I was eagerly anticipating the opening of this store, mainly hoping for an affordable source of lamb and Middle Eastern groceries.
We visited on Saturday evening and it was insanely crowded, mostly fueled by grand opening specials. This is a palace of supermarkets for our area, I would liken it to a Whole Foods for frugal(cheapass!) shoppers such as myself. At least now, during the opening, the entire store was pimped out and absolutely beautiful, stocked to the gills and shiny new with lots of neon and that new store smell!
This store mostly reminds me of my other local Hispanic markets I regularly shop at, such as Superior Grocers and Cardenas. But Super King has a much more international inventory, but with prices equivlent to the Hispanic markets on produce and meats, and also great specials on foods I usually cannot find at my usual haunts.
As you can tell, I am totally geeked out about this place, but this is my thing. I would hope my fellow hounds in the Western I E will check this place out and help welcome them to our hood. I think it will impress!
