Electronically Serving Monterey Park, Alhambra, San Gabriel, & Rosemead


By Mona Raskin

Some of us, unfortunately, wait too long to shop for holiday gifts! This year has been especially difficult hunting for bargains or special sales.  On November 27, 09 (black Friday) might have been rewarding for some shoppers but for others it was not only tiresome from waiting on long lines, but the special sale items were no longer available!

To avoid disappointment and the huge mall crowds, you might just try to stick to small neighborhood shops. You may actually just find that very special item you have been thinking about and the quality and value may very well be equal to the higher price mall department stores!

An example of a particular neighborhood shop is “Susie’s Deals”!  A popular tune “If you knew Susie Like I know Susie” fits this very special clothing store. Once you have shopped there you will surely want to return for more. One of their main shops is located on Valley Blvd. in Alhambra. Long-time manager, Lettie Campos and her crew are available to assist their customers!

One of the special attractions of this particular location is that it’s surrounded by a supermarket, (Luckys) Rite-Aide drug store, Anna’s Linen Store, Payless Shoe Store, Dollar Store, Radio Shack and Big Lots.  It is a perfect location for all your needs.

Anther branch store “Susie’s-Deals is also located on Atlantic Blvd. in Monterey Park, Claudia Perez is the sale-manager and her crew is there to assist you as well. Remember Susie’s Deals on Valley Blvd; in Alhambra and on Atlantic Blvd. in Monterey Park both carry men, women and children sizes.

Well, hopefully the above suggestions will be helpful in your shopping days ahead.  Once you have successfully achieved this venture, you may very well have saved both time and money at the same time! So, now you should truly be able to relax and sing!


“Herald the Holidays”

With joy and cheer

And hopefully peace

And prosperity will be ours

In the coming new year!
