The first impression you’ll get is just the sheer size. Sendik’s is more spacious than the Franklin Pick ‘n Save. I counted about 16 aisles of shelving and refrigerated units. That doesn’t include the separate deli, meat, and bakery areas, plus the spots for liquor and produce and other merchandise, including Christmas trees and Christmas decorations.
The majority of the shelves appear to be in place, and most are already stocked (canned and boxed goods, etc.)
The refrigerated units are also set up but, of course, are empty right now.
Most of the store is nicely carpeted.
Some electrical work is still being done and there are a few hard hats going over plans and discussing what work remains.
As of now, the only entrance is on Rawson, but work continues on S. 51st Street. Parking doesn’t seem like it will be an issue.
Overall, Sendik’s looks fantastic. If it doesn’t open as planned on October 31st, it certainly wouldn’t be much longer after that.
