When it rains it pours. Last Friday saw at least three stores opening at Diamond Jamboree Center. On the weekend, it was H-Mart, — the anchor (and only) supermarket — and Guppy Tea House. Either that or they both just won the Kentucky Derby. There were wreaths of flowers, balloons, the works.
The parking lot was a mess, as we all expected, but there was at least a concerted effort to keep it under control. Those entering the complex through Millikan Ave. side were directed by uniformed employees to drive around the back of the H-Mart and out the other side — because nothing puts a damper on a grand opening celebration than when your customers get run-down by cars.
