^Truly it does, the only difference was the location of the door... on the Parkway the door was on the right so everything was off to the left. At the new store the door is on the left so everything is off to the right. And this one has a pharmacy... Im not sure about the parkway.

I wouldnt have expected this to rule the thread... what about the KFC on cap cir and Appalachee.... that resturaunt has been full every time i pass.. and they have an All U Can consume deal. tough to get in and out of though. turning out of a turn lane, i expect the cap cir entrance to claim a few fender benders.

The closing of Barnes and NObles on Appalachee is interesting too. That is a huge opening, i think it used to be a theatre (office depot too) i saw lion king there...

The cvs, also on that intersection, seems to be doing well. Aside from its proximity to South wood's and the magnolia locations, that high traffic locale should suit it nicely.

Here are some shots of that New CCSE/Apalachee Parkway Intersection where the KFC and CVS just recently had their grand openings:

Nice. And the intersection improvements are great too. I dont really have to wait at that intersection anymore... I cant wait to see how all the road improvemnts will add to our city's satelite pictures. The last ones i have seen, didn't have much southwood and none of the road works 6lane cap cir, appalachee, and the routes to our southern neighbors all will add to the scene.

Lighting is a big thing on capital circle... they need to get some street lights up on CC SE and NW (North of I-10) because its truly pitch dark in those areas, I'd hate to be stranded with a bad battery.

As far as the intersection improvements go, I really like the way they expanded it so when the road is widened, the intersection will be ready...

I've been growing extra excited about "Moving I-10 Forward"... I see the interchange improvements have already begun on Old Exit 29.

I've been to the Harry's in Gainesville. Not too bad, but not somewhere I'd go on a regular basis.

From the looks of things, the Harry's in Tallahassee will be quite the hot-spot... here's a sneak peek at the place prior to Grand Opening this week:

I love the World Market!

We have one here in Covington, and they sell all kinds of different foods from other countries.

I was there last week, and I picked up Swedish Chocolate, and a Chinese Coffee mix. :lol:

WM sells everything from foreign coffee's, to foreign furniture and household items.

It's actually a very cool store, I've found many different foods and drinks from other countries there that I really like.

This is the rest of the Plaza... I think the Office Depot will remain in business for the time being.

Ahh, so that's what they replaced my Barnes & Noble with..... <_< A group I belong to, we had weekly meetings at that Barnes & Noble, every Saturday afternoon, right until the weekend it closed. We were disappointed to have to move. There was one cute red-head that worked in the cafe. I hope they relocate.

I shall have to try the World Market when I go on that side of town.

My girlfriend seemed to fall in love with the world market. I saw tons of potpourii, and wine, and furniture, and miniature sculptures and such. They've got good international candies and the prices seemed fair, much lower than I'd expected.
