This staff at this store were the winners of a regional bingo-type game from summer 2001 in which they need to convince customers to be photographed perform silly acts for the bingo board.

...but this nearby store was not new--I just hadn't noticed the ample foliage last year, perhaps because it was nighttime, or perhaps because I was still amazed by the misters, these amazing devices that actually shoot out a fine mist of water, perhaps to create funky effects with the lighting, but more probably to keep the customers cool in the oppressive summer heat.

More often than not, in the rush to visit all the stores, or as many possible, in a city I fail to appreciate what I later discover to be some really nice designs. This location, for example, is one sweet store, and fairly evocative of this market's predisposition for foliage (out of place though certain plants might be).

This store, built in a former bank, is one of the most striking that I have seen in the Phoenix metroplex, with a design that just radiates spaciousness. But its coolest feature is that it uses one of the old offices as a glass-walled conference room that can be reserved.
