No BS, this is For Real ;-)

Went three times already in the past 3 weeks. Imagine a T&T that is much cleaner, calmer, with much wider aisles and very well-organized (to the point of OCD) shelves and items.

Variety is quite good, meats, poultry, seafood and produce are as good if not better (and cheaper) than T&T. Everything is well-labeled and easy to find.

This is the location on Sea Island Way where the short-lived RONA was. I believe they've been open since early summer. Parking in the lot out front is easy but it's not a huge lot by any means, but they do also have roof parking.

The BBQ and hot items deli is a far cry (so far) from T&T, and I've mentioned that to their manager. They seem to be trying very hard to improve, and this is the first of their many planned stores in other parts of GV. I can probably stop going to T&T and Rice World for most of my shopping trips now if I'm already in Richmond.

On a related note, a new T&T is slated to open at the new Marine Drive Station (Canada Line) development.
