County Exec Scott Walker and Mayor Taylor cut the ribbon
Funniest part of the grand opening festivities: No amount of hoopla was going to stop shoppers from simply walking behind the stage and podium to get in and get their shopping done.
Sendik's is all they promised; excellent selection, carpeted(!) floors, good prices, very helpful and friendly staff, and pretty darn good sushi (which I just polished off as I write this). Connectivity and community-integration issues aside, this is a pretty fantastic store.
And, of course, even the aldermen who did whatever they could to slow the completion of this particular Sendik's were present to take a bow. Everyone's on the same team on opening day.
HOWEVER - no announcement of future tenants.
