San Diego and the Supermarket

As Comic-Con International: San Diego approaches, you’ll find a number of going-to-the-con guides recommending that you stop by the convenient Ralphs supermarket for food (actually, most of them will refer you to “Ralph’s”, unaware that the apostrophe is incorrect; the store chain was founded by George Ralphs.)
Be forewarned, however, that there is a strong possibility of a grocery workers’ strike starting before the convention, and the last one we had here in Southern California lasted for months. As such, there is a good chance that you will face the question of crossing a picket line to shop there… and that if you choose to shop, service may be lackluster (which could include understocked shelves as well as longer wait for checkout.)
The website for the fine alternative market Trader Joe’s shows that they have a store on 9th, just south of Broadway. It’s not as handily close to the convention center as the Ralphs is, and it’s only open 9-to-9 rather than 24 hours, and in the event of a strike they’re likely to be busy, but they do carry some good stuff!
