The Grand Mart in Sterling is having its grand opening this weekend. There are things that still aren't finished, such as the ready-to-eat food counters.
We made a quick tour of it yesterday. I had my non-hound in-laws in tow and there were some time pressures, so I did not get to explore in full detail. Everything seems to be well spaced in the produce section and I didn't see shopping cart gridlock. I grabbed a Dole pineapple for $1.99, some Japanese eggplants at $0.79/lb, coconuts at $.79 or $.99 each.
And so far, you cannot smell the seafood department. *crosses fingers*
Most shoppers were being handed blue kim chee tubs on their way out as a welcoming gift.
