スーパーはこのさきどこのまちにいってもある。

I understand that the conjugation このさき translates to "from this point on", and どこのまちに to "wherever there is a town", but I don't know the usage of いってもある。 How is it different from just saying ある?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

Hi jace75さん

You understood このさき correctly, but どこのまちに is a little different.  I would translate it as "in any town."  And, いってもある is an important expression.  In our lessons, you'll be learning te-form soon.  Te-form is another conjugation of verbs and adjectives, and is used in many expressions.  ~ても is one of them.  ~ても is used to express your supposition.  Here are some examples,

あしたはあめがふってもこうえんにいきます。Tomorrow, I'll go to the park even if it rains.

さむくても、サッカーをします。 Even if it's cold, we'll play soccer.

どこのまちにいってもある expresses that the speaker hasn't been to all the towns, but he/she is sure that there is a supermarket in any town.

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much! The te-form has been a huge obstacle for my reading comprehension. I look forward to future lessons on the subject.
