Anon, Northender,

This is how passionate critics of food and grocery stores do it in other parts of the world:

Not one silly complaint about personal likes or dislikes. Not one vulgar cultural reference. And no silly digressions about the store's design, lighting or shopping carts etc. Just a civilized focus on the items being sold and the earnest celebration of shop owners for their efforts.

As a Canadian who lived in Europe for many years, and having recently returned to my home in downtown Hamilton, I find the lack of respectful and intelligent reviews of food/culinary experience/grocery stores here more appalling than the perceived lack of some design features in this store.

Good reviews of foods/grocery stores transcend narrow cultural beliefs and old prejudices and brings isolated cultures together. I have yet to see a decent local review of this grocery store that talks about the range of items, the quality of produce it carries or even the views of the store owner and what they are trying to accomplish.
