Shop the Flats in Pomona
The Pomona Shop Local Society is still in session. Other than John Clifford, no one who reads the blog seems to have bought anything in POmona for several days now. I was out of town for a couple days, but I did manage to buy some fruit and vegetables from Stater Bros since my last post. Was anyone able to find a bargain at our abundance of 99 cents stores? The one on Foothill just west of Garey is my favorite right now. They actually get Trader Joe's seconds.
Gas counts too, unless you siphoned it from out of your neighbor's car.
That's been happening more and more in Lincoln Park (the siphoning, not the "shopping in Pomona" thing), at least according to the Neighborhood Watch emails. I still haven't put a lock on my car's gas tank. But if I do, I will buy it from one of Pomona's fine and abundant auto supply stores -- so as to maintain my membership in the Pomona Shop Local Society.
I'd spend some money at the Pomona Baking Company, but does anyone know if it's open yet? I'm proud to say I haven't stalked them since last week.
Here's a sneak peak of the mural on the inside of the bakery, courtesy of Richard.
So join me in giving Pomona a leg up by supporting our local businesses. Post below what you managed to not buy in Claremont, Upland or San Dimas this week. Who needs the Shoppes in Chino Hills, when you have the Flats in Pomona?
