The Valley's grandest upscale grocery store, AJ's is a great place to fill your basket with exclusive local creations ranging from salsas and sauces to spice mixes. It's possible to spend hours at any of the 11 identical Valley locations. It's also possible to spend far more money than you would at an average grocery store, but the vast inventory of unusual products not found together anywhere else and the first-class, one-stop shopping experience make it all worthwhile. The wine selection is among the best in town, and the sommelier-quality staff will gladly offer suggestions. Be sure to partake of the fresh, chef-prepared food offerings, like homemade soups, salad, pizza, specialty sandwiches, and gourmet take-out entrées from the bistro.
