When the news that broke that Super A Foods closed on Feb. 3 in Alhambra, residents had a lot to say. A reader poll of which supermarket should replace Super A resulted in Trader Joe's — the natural specialty store — winning almost 50 percent of the 276 votes, followed closely by votes to keep Super A in Alhambra. More than 100 people commented on Facebook and Twitter, expressing surprise, frustration, and nostalgia after losing one of the city's staple supermarkets. Some argued that Super A was the only place in Alhambra to buy affordable Latino food and ingredients. And many began suggesting new stores to fill in the empty spot.
