We finally had a bit of spare time in Guadlajara without child #1 and #2 (yay for school!), so we “rushed” in to see what Mega was all about. It seemed to me to be the most “American” style grocery store I have seen here–it’s Mega big!
Step #1: Park underneath. Get your cart, and put it on the flat escalator to go up to the store on the 2nd floor:
Step #3: Choose your favorite hot sauce. You are not short of choices…that is, unless you are looking for American-style salsa. Tough luck!
Step #4: Purchase a few odds and ends you have not found elsewhere in Mexico, as well as a nice fan (which we have been SO appreciate of, with temps rising up to 90 degrees lately–ahhh!). Pay, and then go DOWN the escalator with the shopping cart. Jared’s not holding on this cart with the groceries, and Ethan. No, our child was not in mortal danger. This escalator is constructed with grooves that lock your cart into place, so it doesn’t move during transit. Genius!
