Northender:

I don't think any culture outside Hamilton would be so obsessed with critiquing a simple grocery store, let alone look at all Asian groceries as dark, confusing busy and loud.

Surely all local grocery stores are not bright, sterile, not confusing or busy and silent? If anything, most local groceries are they full of junk food, genetically altered produce and packaged or canned foods which are neatly arranged in bright lit and spacious aisles with large shopping carts to fill and move around comfortably.

I think what is happening here is that all Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Indian, even Arab or African groceries are being clubbed together into the broad term Asian by a local consumer. While Nation Fresh Foods is trying to homogenize all the different cultures to make it palatable to an order obsessed society.

We define our well-being and comfort through shopping experience. You should really watch this:
