La Tiendona del Pueblo, Part II
CTown Supermarket, Bethlehem, PA
Bethlehem, PA has an appeal to most people. Some like its historic, "small-town" downtown area (definitely a nice downtown). Some like the city-within-a-city of South Bethlehem. Others go for the Sands Casino. It's pretty safe to say that few visit Bethlehem for its supermarkets. And you certainly wouldn't visit it for its Ahart's. But within walking distance of Ahart's is another CTown, opened ca. 2012 in the former Supermercado Mi Tierra, the original Latin supermarket of the Lehigh Valley. (Click on the name for an interesting article about the store's closing and history.)
Once again shattering the traditional perception of CTown as dirty, rundown, and overpriced, this CTown is quite beautiful and generally a good store. To get an idea of the layout, take a look at this interior tour on Google Maps. Have an idea of how the store is laid out? Now let's take a look at my own pictures. You'll notice some changes since that tour.
The store is located on 3rd St, with a small parking lot on the side. The entrance and exit open onto the sidewalk. It's a very urban store.
