Some Pre-Playa Taste of Suburbia
Need a few yards of rebar? Major car repair? Can’t be found here at Mae Anne and Robb, but there is a bit of shopping and medical care amid suburbia here at your very first Reno exit. Notably a Scolari’s Supermarket right next to the freeway, a big Raley’s nearby with an organic section, and some restaurant options.
