Bev Greer found it at Albertsons at 2885 E. Desert Inn Road and some Vons stores. Sheila Morse said it’s available in very fine, medium and coarse at Vons at 2511 Anthem Village Drive in Henderson. Steve Epstein found it at Smith’s at 7130 N. Durango Drive, Gloria Shapiro said it’s available at Walmart in the ethnic foods aisle and Cecilia Peluso emailed that while Walmart carries the fine and medium, Albertsons at 10140 W.
