A gas station is pretty much a gas station in my book, unless there is something special that makes it stick out to me,and unfortunately not too much about Convenient Food Mart sticks out in my mind, other than the smack-dab in the middle of the road location, and the pay phone location right outside the front. If you're looking for gas, snacks, sodas, or a restroom, go right ahead and stop here. Personally, for safety reasons, I wouldn't stop here by myself after dark, but during the day I see no reason to stay away. Overall, pretty much you're average gas station!
Great deli here. Local grocer specializing in Hispanic goods. Prices can be a bit high, and the produce seems to be of the same quality as local chains. If you're looking for an ingredient for that Mexican recipe you've always wanted to try but can't find out in strip mall hell, make a trip here - they probably have it. Do yourself a favor and grab a little bite from the deli before you leave.
Conveniently located in South Omaha, Nenas Mexican Groceries is a small, but wonderful store to find many authentic Mexican groceries, and other items such as phone cards, rosaries, candies, key chains... Even though the store is quite small, Nenas has a large variety and even a fresh produce section, where you can buy mangoes, watermelon, cactus, corn, etc. etc. Parking used to be a hassle, but now that the construction on 24th Street is almost done it's a breeze! Nenas prices are very fair, and this is a store I like to visit often!
Meats, spices, groceries, etc. this little store has it all. I don't specifically need much that this store sells, but its still fun to wander around and look. The store also caters to the Hispanic customers (its located right smack dab in South Omaha), with bilungual signs and cashiers. The parking lot is kind of small, but there isn't usually much of a crowd so it isn't too much of a problem. If you need any Asian items, this is the place to look for it!
I don't frequent liquor stores, but Hooch Hutch is a pretty decent one in my opinion! Ice cold beer is available in sizes ranging from single 12oz cans, to cases or even kegs. Wine coolers, tequila, vodka, you name it, you can find it here. Complete with a Pickle machine and ATM, Hooch Hutch is a nice family owned and operated store. When I was younger, I was a fan of the large selection of candy and nuts, and enjoyed picking out a cold soda from the many available. A nice store to visit in order to buy some drinks for a relaxing evening!
Beer City has all the beer and liquor and supplies you need. They have keg beer, bottles, cans, and also hard liquors. They usually have everything you need in stock as well as a wide selection of flavors of keg beers. They also sell snacks and usually have a very nice staff on hand to help.
Wohlner's is a great family owned and run grocery store that specializes in their own homemade sausages and terrific butcher shop. They have an extensive wine section also. Their smoked salmon is terrific and their cheese selection rivals specialty shops. This store is a one stop gourmet dream. The fruit and vegetable produce area is well taken care of. This store is a pleasure to shop in. I always run into one friend or another there.
Orsi's got back on their feet quickly after a fairly damaging fire a few years back. They do 'old-style' (see La Casa) sheet pizzas. They have a really good hamburger/potato pizza. Ingredient quality is high. All the baked goods are excellent and widely available at local grocers. If you have a youth group (scouts and such) you can get in touch with them about hosting an event. Sometimes they'll do little group gigs with the kids, making pizza and such...fun and entertaining - kids love it.
I LOVE the clothing that they carry in this store, now if I can afford it is another story. Sometimes I can find a few things that are on cleareance that are still in season and cute that I can afford, but a lot of the name brand clothing is just way to expensive for me. They do have a few lesser name brands that have super cute clothing in there and I usually go with these, but I would definately reccomend this store to any women who loves urban clothing!
If you like to scrapbook, this is definately a store for you. They have lots of different stickers, papers, stamps, and others for the scrapbookers dream! The employees are great and will help you find anything you need. You can get some great ideas for your projects at this store.
