Anybody notice what they've done here? They've been working on it for more than a year, and everytime I went in I'd look at what had been done and say, "Why did they do that? THAT wasn't much of an improvement." I could see the building looked like a strip mall trying to change into a minimall, but now, even though everything is still under construction, metamorphosis has begun. The old entrance is gone, and the new one is down at the center of the building. You enter, and the vegetables and fruit are down there. Nice selection, and well displayed. Then past the store bread, there's an entire Borealis shop, a deli sandwich place, a sushi bar (prices as high as any restaurant...why bother?) and a fish counter with loads of stuff you never see around here. Unfortunately, I don't need a whole fish for anything, so I didn't get to try anything. Loads of cheese, both at the front and back end of the store. Better supermarket quality, nothing I've never seen here before, though.

Other sections are larger but don't seem to have any more selection. More of the same beer and wine, anyone? Also, there's a section of the floor the size of a roller rink which is waiting to be finished.

It's worth a visit. I'll be back, as I'm at the University a lot.
