The Los Angeles Bodega Tour: Jumbo Bargain

In an effort to celebrate neighborhoods, culture, and the intersect of the two, we’re traveling around town to profile small discount stores that are full of character and full of unique products that you can only find in Los Angeles.

Seeking to do what Anton Gursky did for the 99 Cent Store, please enjoy The Los Angeles Bodega Tour.

Introduction: Giant Dollar is a mixture of many discount store concepts. It’s part Dollar Store, part thrift store, part international marketplace: it covers the gamut of just about everything.
