Re: Max Foods Montebello Closing

They might be getting ready to put up a new bigger Sav-On size. Just hoping! I would love to see Sav-On back. Not too keen on CVS anymore since they got a bit high with their prices.

Re: Intriguing SoCal chain: Superior Super Warehouse

I can't believe that store made any money. It was the nasiest, messiest, dirtiest store I have EVER been in or seen. Glad it's gone. Has Superior kept up the store? Has it been remodeled?

Which set of elevators? The ones near Nordstroms or the ones in the middle of the mall near JC Pennys?

Has anyone seen the movie? I'm thinking *maybe* they where hiding in more then one store. Meaning that these 2 stores might be completely different and not the same.
