During The Pandemic, in Oakland, like the rest of the nation (and perhaps the industrialized world) toilet paper is the one product that is in high demand other than hand sanitizer. So, you say you went to your major chain store and found their was a run on toilet paper? Well, thanks to the friendly folks on Nextdoor, the arrow of help points to the friendly small retail store called Lake Merritt Super Market at 459 Perkins at Grand Avenue.
And yes, in Oakland, in Adams Point, next to the intersection of Grand Avenue and Perkins.
As the Nextdoor tipsters wrote:
If your having a hard time finding T/P, the search is over, they have lots of it at the Lake Merritt SuperMarket on the corner of Grand and Perkins. Your Welcome. Another Nextdoor tipster added “Just a reminder: Sam has plenty of rice, beans (pinto & black) and potatoes to donate to any Adams Point neighbor in need.”
Perkins Market is well-stocke. Plenty of bottled water, pet food, pasta, wine, almond milk, IPA, canned soup, and Pepperidge Farm Goldfish. Go say hi to my man,Solomon.
And on Yelp, the Lake Merritt Super Market has received rave reviews:
A well stocked corner convenience store. You’ll find a wide range of drinks, sweets & just all kinds of non-perishable items. Heck, you can even get here some individual fresh fruits & veggies, which is pretty unique to these kinda establishments.
– right across a gas station (with Zipcars) and a bus stop (with the NL heading to SF)
– right next to one of the more popular casual carpool spots
This is long over due. This store is wonderful and,Sam, the owner is a prince of a fellow. He stocks many items that no other small grocery has. He also has International food. A few times I have gone without my wallet. No problem. Sam just says bring it later. I highly recommend this special place!
So, need toilet paper? Buy it from Sam!
