South Seas Market is one of the many stores on San Mateo Avenue that specializes in selling ethnic foods.
Unfortunately, it is also one of the many stores on The Avenue that has sat vacant for a while.
It isn't clear how long South Seas has been closed, and it also isn't clear if anything is going to replace it.
The last known activity recorded by the city was a building inspection done in 2005. According to several Yelp reviews, the grocery store, which sold specialty food items from around the world—including Jamaica, South Africa, England and Samoa—had an unusual smell that seemed to repel customers.
The only other information known about the property is that the San Francisco-based owner also had the Bollywood video store next door, which is also now vacant.
What do you think should be done with this store?
