When did that happen?

There's a new supermarket in Civic. An IGA has sprung up from nowhere in East Row, where the library used to be. I noticed it yesterday when the bloke & I had a post work drink at the Phoenix. I wonder if it will last? There's a lot of competition with Aldi and Supabarn in the Canberra Centre, and a mini IGA over on Marcus Clarke St near the uni. But the bus zone location might help.

In case you're wondering what we're eating, because that's so what this blog is all about, I made a big batch of curries on Sunday which we've been working through. A pork vindaloo, with premix Indian spices, and a mixed veggie one from a Charmaine Solomon book. And we had dinner out Tuesday night for a future CT review (ooh, secrets, don't tell!), and Zambrero burritos yesterday.

Hello. I walked past it a few weeks ago, jsut before it opened and waas surprised. Especially since I've heard on the organic grapevine that the guy who owns As Nature Intended at Belco (which isn't a certified trader, btw) and the Shoprite at Griffith is intending to open another shop in Civic. It doesn't bode well for Mooble, though they've moved more into the clothing and other stuff lines.

The dudes at As Nature Intended told me they were setting up down near the "New Acton" bit of town; they sounded very excited about it and the Belco shop was full of new staff learning how to drive the espresso machine ...
