Now that we've moved grocery out of the "old store" into the new addition, you can't see behind the scenes. This week's report shows what's happening out of sight - the concrete floors are being cut and removed, interior walls are coming down. In the meantime, you may be wandering around looking for a few of your favorite things. Don't be shy about asking a staff member! Follow our facebook page for upcoming videos to guide you around the new space.

You can't see it yet, hiding behind the plastic, but the stone veneer on the outside wall is 50% finished. The beautiful wood trim leading into the new inside seating area feels warm and inviting. The refrigerated cases have arrived and are being installed. This week the installation of the resilient flooring will begin. Take a look at the photos, or better yet, stop in and take a look!

Expansion Update this week: walls, halls and bathroom stalls – we've got it all coming together steady and smooth this week.

Somewhere along the way we started calling the new deli seating area by the name of "Community Room," which is quite fitting! Click on the image below to zoom in on the photos showing more of the finishing touches accomplished last week!

Expansion Update this week: the path into the store has been changed – although – let there be light. And finished floors. And swinging doors. And so much more!

Notice the sidewalk redirects you through a new set of sliding doors. Really cool, easy-to-clean, brightly-colored epoxy floors were installed in multiple locations – along with fluorescent light strips to help guide your path into the store. Bathroom hardware is getting installed this week, along with an overhead door at the vestibule and receiving bay. Exciting news and despite the weather, we're well on our way!
