Why do you ask this question? I am assuming you are trying to understand the neighborhood better.
Tahoe Donner is a very popular neighborhood with Sacramento and Bay Area vacationers, as it is a convenient location off HWY 80, and very serene and mountainy, with many HOA amenities.
However, if you are worried about a grocery store, I would like to issue a word of warning, this is slightly further from the center, and you will have a steeper road to contend with. Message me with your concerns.

Hi K

The convenience store here in TD near Trout Creek Rec Center has lots of quick fix things and a decent selection, Dean cooks a great "fowlburger" there in the summer - a true convenience store (a definite upgrade from the 7-11 wine selection) - Safeway down the hill has eye popping selections but may be the highest priced Safeway in the state, Save Mart down 89 a mile or so is much cheaper but has limited selection.

We do most of our local shopping at Safeway, some at Save Mart. I take clients to lunch at the TD market or at "The Lodge"

For bulk it is Costco, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods in Reno - which incidentally is where you can fill the gas tank without feeling like you are being ripped off quite as bad.

IF - (and "if" is the operative word here) you want RE info from a local RE agent with 23+ years of local experience - reach out to me for straightforward data.

Get ready for winter, it is close - get the skis, snowboard or snowshoes dialed in. Get the right tires on your car, have a survival pack in the backseat, keep the tank over half full and get ready for an "A" ticket ride.

If you are here for the winter or longer consider joining the "nextdoor" web forum - google it for TD and you'll figure it out - a good neighborhood watch kind of thing where the bad guys are usually the bears who get into garbage and make a mess. Overall a nice local resource for all things above 6,000'

There is a nice grocery and delicatessen in Tahoe Donner about 2 miles down by the Trout Creek Rec Center; otherwise Safeway in the heart of Truckee about 5 miles. Have fun.
