, though, and snapping some snazzy pictures of the grand glass roof and huge sales space. The word that comes to mind is 'dramatic,' and then the next word that comes to mind is 'big.'

If you're planning to attend the store opening on Saturday, drop us a line or send in a link to your photos & videos.
