A new store opened up in the neighborhood called Fresh & Easy. I had a coupon so I had to try it out. The store is owned by Britain's megastore Tesco. It is similar to Trader Joe's, but a bit different. You can buy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups alongside their own label of different products touting fresher ingredients. I am sure you get what you pay for:

I dig the family parking, as well as the hybrid parking:

My one, huge complaint is that the checkout can get a bit hairy. Think Trader Joe's without checkers. It is self-serve checkout (there were two guys on the floor to assist with problems) in a very small space. My groceries had gone down the conveyer belt and then the madness began. I started bagging my items and then the next person started ringing their stuff up and sending it down the belt. So all of their groceries started mixing in with mine at the end. The guy looked at me and said, "No hurry." There I was, with two squiggly kids, rushing like a fumbling fool. Next time I will place Reade up on the conveyer belt as a marker to distinguish who's groceries are who's!
