Holiday Construction Update
December 21, 2009
With a little less than three weeks to go before our grand opening, I wanted to update you on the progress we are making inside and outside the store. We are still a “construction zone” but the store layout and image is taking shape. We have started stocking canned goods and other non-perishable items. Our coolers, which are 70%-80% more efficient than your typical grocery store frozen coolers, are up and running and waiting to be filled. Our pricing and UPC codes are diligently getting entered into the systems. The store departments are getting signage and their own looks are taking shape. Our contractors are busy tweaking electrical, signage, aisle layouts, artwork, etc.Posted by Jeff Maurer

People are talking about cooking classes and seminars, and we are listening. We are planning on having cooking classes and events possibly in the special events room in the food court because it has windows all around and it is a beautiful corner of the building room.
To start I am looking at covering basic techniques of searing and pan roasting meats and sea-fare, risotto and pasta techniques, use of fresh herbs in cooking, and wine pairing with tasting events.
If you have anything you would like to see us cover or events you would like to see come to Madison, leave us a comment or email us and let us know.
After all, we are here for you, we are your market, if you are looking for something, we want to get it for you !Posted by Jeff Maurer
