  1. Have to admit I'm disappointed. Groceries are an "essential service" and I've shopped at Superlake for 20 years; I buy lots of local/Mexican items that remain pretty competitive, price-wise, as well as the "must have" imports. Usually decent produce too. On the whole, better performance/reliability than Walmart, where you find a product you like, buy it once and never, ever see it again. The absence of Superlake is going to be a major inconvenience for many of us in the area. Me, I'm already mourning the Asian food products I've sourced there for years when no one else carried them.
  2. I've had some success with liberally applying Vicks Vapo Rub to beams and ledges; not swallows specifically but birds in general don't seem to care for the aroma or getting it on their little claws...
  3. Has anyone else had problems with Interjet? I've been trying to reach them since the middle of the month to cancel a San Francisco trip I booked for 23-29 March. San Francisco was already in lock-down a week or more before I was scheduled to fly, but I couldn't get through to Interjet on either of the 2 numbers for Customer Service in Mexico City. I also sent 4 emails to the address on their Customer Service web page, and only had responses to the first 2, stating that I would have to speak to someone by phone! I've made multiple calls each day and only got thru to be put on hold for a representative on 3 occasions; each time I was cut off after approximately 40 minutes. After all this, I received several automated emails from Interjet updating me on the status of my flight, including 2 that had me flying on the wrong date entirely. (???) Lupita at Viajes Ajijic was trying to reach Interjet on my behalf as well, with no better success. Apparently she stopped booking clients with them sometime around last September because of rumours that they were in financial trouble; I booked this one myself online and she's only been trying to help because she understands how frustrated I am. I even wrote the Aviation Consumer Protection Division in Washington D.C. and cc'd them copies of my emails; the Interjet website displays their address as an alternative if you have complaints but I don't expect they'll actually intercede. Can anyone suggest further resources I can utilize to obtain a refund? It says right on the Interjet website that "In case your travel is affected by causes that are attributable to Interjet or for any other extraordinary circumstances, you may request a refund which would be processed in the following manner..." I should think a global pandemic would constitute "extraordinary circumstances" if anything does... Obviously the flight went without me last Monday, and was never officially cancelled. At this point I don't know what else to do and can't afford to just write off the money!
  4. Ok, this isn't good news. They have the best selection of products but if they're ripping people off, I'll avoid them entirely. Anyone know if SuperLake is doing deliveries? BYW, ignoring the map is not an option; I don't know how to be clearer - I can't proceed because I can't get beyond the damn map or go back either.
  5. I guess I wasn't clear. I've reset the map to show my exact location, but I've clicked everything on the mouse/keyboard and every place on the map and it won't go away!
  6. I successfully placed an order earlier for a small appliance, but now I'm trying to do another for groceries. It keeps bringing up a map so I can pinpoint my location, but I can't make the map go away after. I can't get back to my order and I'll probably lose the lot and have to start over. So frustrating - am I missing something?
  7. Good luck. I'd kill for some new grains - both milk and water, but not available on Amazon Mex and the Amazon U.S. won't ship across the border. If you find a source, please post!
  8. Also for cutting hair. Ask at your local corner store or take a used blade to show them.
  9. Thanks, Ferret for pointing out an angle I hadn't considered. This Webboard could actually be a valuable resource if contributors would share info they come across from reputable sources; it's hard to stay on top of everything with the situation changing daily.
  10. I'm a renter so installing stuff isn't in my plans. Thanks for the info everyone, and I"ll check out the other two suggestions.
  11. Does anyone have a phone number for Bonafont or Santorini? Been using the latter for a couple of years since Bonafont quit coming, but no there's been no Santorini for a week and a half. I understand they're now branded "E-pura" but why would they change routes and leave regular customers high and dry? Alternatively, who else has good quality water and delivery service? I could pick up once or twice from a depot if I new where they were (any in Riberas?) but can't easily lift/carry a garaphon to move it any distance. Any info appreciated. Small bottles from the store are pricey and don't go far.
  12. I've had my empty garaphons (garaphones?) out since Tues. (regular delivery day in the past) and no sign of the truck. It's getting scary dry around here and I'm not sure what to do. I can't lift the garaphons and schlepping a dozen of the smaller bottles from the store is not appealing. Is there a number I can call to ask what's going on? Maybe our street is no longer part of their route?
