Default New businesses opening

The thread about businesses closing is depressing. How about a new one about new businesses that are opening?

I'll start.

There is a new bakery that is opening very soon or may already be open in Chapel Hill. Bliss Boutique Bakery - Under Construction It is in the courtyard on Franklin Street where 3 Cups used to be. I know they are giving away free samples tomorrow during the Inauguration as Sandwhich is going to be offering breakfast and showing the Inauguration so they must be close to ready.

Don't worry. 3 Cups is still around. It moved to the plaza where Whole Foods is. It's in the group of stores with Great Harvest Bread and Locopops which is across the parking lot from Whole Foods. Haven't been there yet as it's a little out of the way so I forget about it.

There's a weird new discount/surpluss store opening in Cary by the TJ Maxx. I think it's called Ollie's Bargain outlet.
Ollie’s Bargain Outlet | "Good Stuff Cheap!"

What's that new Asian grocery by TJ Maxx too? S Market or something like that? I haven't been yet.

That is across from my daughter's preschool. Sometimes I go to the TJ Maxx. I didn't even know about the bargain store. I'll have to check it out! It looks like a cross between Building 19 Home Page and Ocean State Job Lot - Home . I was wondering if the Asian supermarket was open yet. I keep forgetting about it since it's on the opposite end of TJ Maxx.

It's called S-mart. My Korean friend says it's geared towards the Korean community. It's not as nice as Grand Asia market which seems to market itself to the general community (Asian or not). S-mart seems a little more aimed specifically at the Korean community. I went in there EXTREMELY quickly once and noticed everything in a foreign language (I didn't see anythign in English, and I guess it's all Korean but I didn't know that at the time). Granted, this was maybe a week after they opened, so maybe they just weren't really finished. I plan to check it out again. I live in the n'hood right behind it.

Here's a local review: http://www.newsobserver.com/105/story/1356742.html (broken link)

S Mart. It's in the old Hancock Fabrics location. I like it...it's got more korean foods than Grand Asia Market.


ETA: My bad... i wrote my reply to the question and then didn't post it until after I had dinner! There are a lot of signs in English, but not everything. The staff have been very helpful to me in deciphering the goods. I'm surprised you think it's not as nice as Grand Asia - I love both, but I wouldn't say GA is nicer. Probably because it is always so darn crowded and I've never been able to get any help - from staff, anyway. The fish tanks at GA give me the willies; I LOVE their hot food section.
