Recommendation for Las Americas SuperMaxi, super market

For those who are sensitive to gluten, or would like to find amaranth flour as was I looking for it for certain recipes, you will be delighted to be able to get it and more hard-to-find items at this store. This ancient grain is scarce even in the US, so readers can imagine my surprise and great delight when Augusto, the friendly English-speaking manager, immediately took me to it. If they don't have it certain items and SuperMaxi carries them, they will order it at the customer's request, even from Quito.

This store also carries some organic produce as well as Schull organic rolled and steel-cut oats, and other such items I did not expect to find here.
Paul, one of the assistant managers, has been extremely helpful, friendly, and speaks perfect English. Jose in produce, has gone and checked produce for us in the back when I couldn't find it displayed. Even the store "guards" who watch over checked items brought into the store, are cordial. It's worth the hassle to get there with torn up streets. We are thankful for this great shopping blessing nearby.

Address: SuperMaxi, Av. Las Americas, Cuenca
