Chili Mini Mart, 521 Chili Ave. 

Owners:  Mohamed Monassar,  Mohamed Abdullah

Location: Google Map  

In business with these owners since 1998.  Well-staffed, offerings include hair products, beer and pop, canned foods, lottery tickets, and more, for mostly local customers.

At first glance the Chili Mini Mart looks like it is just the small center store front but it actually take up the three east storefronts in this building.

As you walk in the door you pass by the checkout counter which is stocked with cigarettes, candy and various small items. In the right image above Mark is interviewing one of the clerks at the rear counter behind which are various beauty items such as hair pieces as can be seen in the right image below.  To the left of the that is a small clothing area which currently just had a few items.


In the left image below We are looking west along the rear counter and we see two of the three aisles between the rear counter and the front of the store. The right image is looking in the opposite direction down the center aisle to coolers along the east wall of the store.


Looking east down the front aisle in the left image below we see the continuation of the coolers along the east wall. Looking in the opposite direction down this tapered front aisle we see the shelves on the right and ice-cream freezer against the front wall of the store.


From the same position as in the above picture, in the last image on the left we are looking toward the back of the store along the east wall where the coolers are.  If you wonder why this aisle is tapered check the Google Map and you will see the corners of this building are not square along Chili.

As in most of these stores they only carried white bread and whole milk because that is what their current customers buy.
