The PriceSmart just a few miles down the hill is a membership store even more like a Costco and has some great prices, particularly on their salmon, which is delicious! The membership fee is only $15 and well worth it!
Just around the corner from the PriceSmart is the TuTu Park Shopping Mall, where you will find a Kmart ans well as many other stores like Radio Shack, Footlocker, etc. At the far end of that mall is the 3rd closest grocery store, The Plaza Extra, and the best one for buying non bulk items or specialty items you might not find in the big box stores.
