Chronicles of the New Giant: Yellow!

There are 2 Giants in Springfield, VA, within 10 minutes of each other. I go to both; it just depends on where I am coming from and where I am going. I went to the one at Keene Mill and Rolling Road, tonight. (I call this one "Rolling Giant" as opposed to the other one closer to the Springfield Interchange, that I call "International Giant" as they stock a lot more spanish foods.)

Rolling Giant is much further along in their remodeling than the other one. They clearly had just taken everything down off the walls and repainted the whole top half of the store Blazing Yellow.

I love the color yellow, just LOVE it.
Even I have to admit ... that is a LOT of yellow in one place. I suspect that once the signs are back up it will be fine.

Right now: it is very yellow.

Another note: They didn't move as much inventory around as the other Giant did. The moves actually make no sense. At first, I thought that the stores were settling on one unified layout. But no, Baby items and coffee are still in radically different places between the 2 stores. I have no idea what the plan is. I guess we'll find out.
