First I have to say – I love that they kept the old 1950s neon sign – awesome! Other memorable element of the store is that it has a ton of self check out stations – good beer and wine selection, they’ll steam lobsters for you, there’s a full service bank, a big starbucks cafe with awesome old map mural – but for me – it’s all about the sign.

Also if you live nearby and happen to see the ribbon cutting at 6pm tonight – they’ll let you in to shop afterwards. Regular store hours are 6am – midnight.
