Copper line. Sushi department?

Other side of the copper line.. temperature controlled shelving. Might be the same design as the others in the "prepared foods" area?

2nd floor by the kitchen school had this blue tarp last month.

That area is now filled with seating! They expanded the upstairs "cafe seating".  Such a massive place.

Noticed a few things this morning while grocery shopping.  They (temporarily?) moved the lotion area in the Health & Beauty department. The left over shelving is old and gross! Surely these will go once the remodel furnishings take place? Hopefully they don't skimp on the budget for new shelving.  I understand once products hit the shelves again, the stains will hardly be noticeable, but they are still old and gross.

This place still continues to blow my mind. It's a "foodies" paradise.  Some misc. photos from the past week or two.

 

New directional signage around the store. I like the design.

They really did create/expand their olive oil/vinegar area! In their press release they indicated they'd focus on olive oils and such. It's a curved section of the store.  The area is separated from the rest of the food.

Fancy olive oils reminds me of tequila bottles. Unique glass, writing, waxed corks, etc.

The new grand entrance I assume.  The 3900 Essex Lane bldg and the 2929 Weslayan residences in the background.

I heard rumors that only one bathroom set will be remolded.  Basically all the (male) bathrooms are "torn apart" though.  Maybe they'll touch them up, but just not remodel them with new sinks, urinals, toilets, etc.

 

One thing that CM doesn't do a good job at is the men's bathrooms. Yuck :wacko:

New concrete poured and polished at the front of the store by the registers. It's so shiny! 

 

They had the floor taped for a week..

Fran's Chocolates from Seattle. Wonder if this is going to be a staple or if it's a special.
