For 15 years, starting on the day he moved to the Mission, Sam was Jeff's corner-store guy. In this podcast, Sam talks about his move to the U.S. from Jordan as a teenager. He and his brother Joe ended up in Daly City, where Sam finished high school. Shortly after that, Sam had the opportunity to own a store on Mission just south of Army Street.
Then in the late-'80s, he bought Golden Eagle Market on Valencia at 20th St., where he still works today. He talks about how the neighborhood, and especially that corner, has evolved over the years.
We recorded this podcast at Golden Eagle Market in December 2019.
