Peterborough Superstore (new Loblaws)

Ok, so I'm not a regular Loblaws shopper. The new Peterborough Superstore opened sometime late last winter and I'd been in only once before today - and the previous time I was just running in and out. Anyway, today I was shocked - SHOCKED - at how truly abysmal a store this is. I'm not sure what kind of "super" they had in mind when they redesigned this store but it is, in every way, a seriously yukkier shopping experience than the regular Loblaws it replaced. The produce is really really awful - I mean REALLY awful. Wilted, disorganized, not price-labelled, a big horrible mess. The vegetables are all relegated to the side walls where they sit, shrivelled, in measly composting heaps. The fruit was just slightly better, but I tell you both No Frills and Price Chopper has them beat by a mile.

And don't get me started on the fish counter. Are they kidding? Everything looked sad and old. Nothing is on ice; there are just nasty little stainless bins filled, halfheartedly, with a few flabby fillets of whatnot. I actually went in there for some fish but ended up coming home and defrosting some salmon I had in the freezer instead.

What were they thinking? Is it just me?
