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.
