Shoppers Paradise

Area Vibes often gives high scores for shopping in cities with lots of 7-11s. Gardena is a true shoppers paradise has a lots of quality stores. South Bay Galleria (mall) is fifteen minutes away and so is Mitsuwa (Japaense grocery store). Carson Mall and the Torrance Swap Meet (Roadium) is also fifteen minutes away. However, less then ten minutes away we have three more Japanese grocery stores, Gardena Supermarket (large Hispanic grocery store), and 99 Ranch (large Chinese grocery store). Also less than ten minutes away is Target, Walmart, Kmart, Vons, Albertson, and Ralphs. There are three 99 cent stores less than ten minutes away with one being a Japanese 99 cent store Daiso. Restaurants are excellent and are all less than ten minutes away including, Mexican, American, Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, and several good places to get steak and prime rib. The only thing that is lacking a decent Chinese dim sum place. Mostly Chinese take out with one or two Chinese "restaurants". I catch the bus to work and the park and ride has plenty of parking that is free. This is not a bar town or a dance club city. The high school sucks and there is lots of crime. It's a very livable city even family friendly, but if I had kids, I would apply to have my kids transferred to the Torrance School District which is very close by.
