The business closed for good in January 2009 after a catastrophic drop in trade during 2008.

There are now some great Polish shops in the city (and some super Chinese supermarkets). The Alma was fantastic, but too expensive. I recall buying stuff there and seeing it in supermarkets for half the price. They were, at one point, the only place to get tins of Illy Espresso coffee.

I remember the earlier shop in the lower precinct (1990s). They sold multi coloured prawn crackers which were a novelty at the children's parties, but after some years they disappeared and I then wondered if the colouring ingredient had been banned. Edited by member, 22nd May 2017 9:56 am

It was always known as the Polish shop. I was a regular in the 70's as it was the only place that sold Eastern European produce which at the time I loved, there was a creamy sweet which I cant remember the name of at the moment which I bought by the bucketload. They also sold soured cream (it never occurred to me to make some myself). My kids also loved the various Polish sausages that they sold. Eventually when other Polish shops opened (including one nearly opposite them) and supermarkets began to stock the same items the Alma could no longer compete
