This is a very typical Chinese supermarket. This is part of a chain of other Great Wall Supermarketsalong the east coast and they carry a ton of things. This place is awesome. It's a supermarket but there's also a buffet style restaurant in the back. The fruit selection is located by the parking lot. It is varied and pretty fresh. Fresh vegetables are inside on big display tables. There is a fresh seafood section with live fish, crabs, frogs (yup), and shrimp. The meat section includes the area with the butchers as well as packaged items.
