Went to the corner of Van Ness and Division the other day, expecting to find Smart & Final select brisket for $1.99 a pound. Instead I found that the store has converted to a Cash and Carry and was selling USDA Choice for $1.57 a pound!
This was a July 4 deal that is probably gone by the time you read this, but the store is a wonder even at regular prices. As well as a far better selection than S&F. This is the place to shop.
