I like what I've seen of Super Saver, so that could be a good one. Unfortunately all of them are way out of the way right now (I think one is in CB, and the other one is out past Millard on U St)

Anyway, call me crazy, but I think an Aldi or a Trader Joe's would work here. Before I moved outside the Beltway (Virginia) 3 years ago, my house was in a 1960's era neighborhood that was largely working class Asian/Hispanic/Middle-Eastern immigrants and native born blue collar Americans, and equally distant from 2 TJ's (about 3 miles to both stores). They were always packed with locals---TJ's has very good prices, and it's ironic to me that in Omaha it's in a ritzy neighborhood. Same thing with 5 Guy's (their first 5 stores---all in the Virginia suburbs of DC, were in working class neighborhoods). Blue collar folks are more likely to cook at home (I can't think of many decent restaurants in South Omaha growing up outside of Johnny's Cafe and Eddie Galas'----going out to eat was a special occasion, even for fast food), so the quality and value of groceries are not lost on them.
Aldi is already in South O, on 30th and L. Just down the street. It's also never not busy, so it seems to be doing well.
