"The whole layout is totally different than the other stores. It is a much more eco-friendly and energy-efficient store. As we do a store we make it much better than before. The few people I (spoke) to are impressed. We think we have gotten it right. That's what we set out to do," said MegaMart CEO Gassan Azan.

Karlene McKenzie-Clayton, manager for MegaMart Mandeville, said that the more than 200 employees are mainly from Manchester.

McKenzie-Clayton said that she is "pleased' that persons were shopping; and from her observation "a bit f everything is moving".
