Yay for more parking! Lots more parking!
It was with much anticipation that the KKonnect crowd (with an adjunct member) descended upon the All New Zion Market for it’s Grand Re-opening in it’s new location at 7655 Clairemont Mesa Blvd. The building, a former K Mart, and then a Sears, is now home to a huge new Korean market, leading one KKonnect member to exclaim “It’s the Korean Costco!”
Still under construction, Zion opened it’s doors Thursday, May 23rd to waiting customers and things were already bustling when Cheryl, Jini, Rachel and Samantha entered shortly after noon. The number of people was deceptive, though, as the spacious interior masked the numbers already pushing bright orange carts around the fresh, clean white floors.
The product line looked to be pretty much the same as the old Zion, but with an expanded array and the benefit of less crowding in the aisles. The beautiful produce display was visually appealing. The vast counters and displays set aside for meats and seafood were still somewhat under construction but promise to provide a wide array to delicacies.
Checkout should be smooth going as the checkout stands stretch the width of the store, dividing the grocery section from the ‘department store’ like area that will soon house “Paris Baguette”, “Eye World”, a Kawaii shop, a jewelry store, a housewares shop, and “Eiom”.
Kkonnecters left with snacks in hand out into the beautifully vast parking lot.
