    New Grocery Store in Sabaneta

    I was there a couple of weeks ago and was also very impressed. I was able to find a majority of the items I shop for in Cabarete or Sosua and about a third were cheaper than the prices I'm accustomed to. I also noticed the sale price items and a few of those were considerably cheaper. However...
