I hope it settles down or Rudinos is going to lose a regular customer. Can't even pick up a pizza anymore. Although I'm sure the tenants are loving the extra traffic as tbonzie said.

Well, if many people don't come due to it, it is a double edged sword. But I'm sure it will die Down to a normal level soon.

It will die down. This is what Publix was like when it opened and now you go to Publix in the middle of the day and no one is there (relatively speaking). Lots of people off this past week and over-excited about the opening. My DD's friends are all Asian and when she got together with them this week it was all they were talking about LOL.

Speaking of Publix, we were looking for a dry aged rib eye steak for Christmas Eve dinner and left it too late. Harris Teeter was sold out. I refused to pay the inflated Butcher's Market price. Then I remembered our trips to Publix shortly after they opened, and recalled that they were selling prime dry aged beef.

I called all the local stores. Nope. Finally, one of the meat managers told me that corporate eliminated the prime aged beef in their Triangle stores because it wasn't selling.

Back when there was a Kroger at NC 55 and High House, that place was jam packed for about the first week or two after opening and the entire parking lot was completely full. That same Kroger shut down three years later due to low sales. I agree that H-Mart will eventually be a lot less busy.

Yesterday was my first trip there - store is very nice and much more organized than the one I used to go to in Catonsville, MD.

The nicest thing is the number of cashiers - most, if not all, of the lines were open and all had baggers there to speed things along.


For those of you saying that you expect traffic to die down, have you been to the Grand Asia Market in Cary - that place is a madhouse most anytime of day, both parking-wise and inside

Same was true for the H-Mart I used to go to in MD, parking lot was almost always full everyday of the week.

I expect the same will likely happen here.

If that's the case then I'd be pretty pissed if I were another tenant in the building.

The "madhouse" at Grand Asia didn't exactly help Burlington Coat Factory.

So what are the best things to get from the eateries inside, from those with experience themselves?
