An early 2000s shot of the shopping center's largest anchor store, a bigg's hypermarket. Clocking in at 245,000 square feet, it was a prototype, American version of a European hypermart, an idea borrowed from Wal-Mart's first SuperCenter-format stores. Photo from http://www.flickr.com ("JoeZone36")
