    JUSCO @ MegaBox 30th June

    Well according to the flyers for Pokka Cafe and buono nuobo that are opening inside JUSCO.

    No dates other than Summer for Ikea, and that there will be a restaurant for 300 Swedish meatball fans.

    The preparation inside MegaBox has been pretty bad, from flooding to simply having several floors boarded up and everything looking vacant. A few restaurants have likewise opened up around MegaBox in the new Enterprise tower but nothing overly exciting, a Thai food restaurant of some description, a cheap lunch hall, and some kind of organic food eatery.

    No signs whether this means Pokka are moving out of Telford and buono nuobo & JUSCO out of APM. A high class cake shop moved out of JUSCO in APM already but I think it was replaced by a local cake shop owner.

    (edit) According to the JUSCO site the supermarket is open already,

    JUSCO moved out of Lok Fu about 6 months ago. They relocated to Megabox and opened last week.

    Another Japanese supermarket/department store called "Uny" has just opened in Lok Fu last week as well. They are also known as APITA in Taikoo. Uny and APITA are the same company.

    So JUSCO and APITA just swapped hands? I haven't been there in ages, it's more low budget in Lok Fu. The Pokka Cafe there wasn't too hot either, appears under redecoration in their website.

    Oh, UNY's open? I'm right by Lok Fu MTR station right now. I'll have to check it out.

    Yep, Uny opened 5th June. I think you are right Mr Moo, they just swapped space with Jusco in Lok Fu.

    I didn't mean I'd check it out right now, but I work in the area, so I'll definitely get over there some time tomorrow (today's going to be hectic).

    Well, the JUSCO pretty much owns Megabox now. It's taking up ground to third floor, ground floor already has a seasonal event of Korean food. First floor is clothing and restaurants; second floor is food supermarket, electrics, electronics, and furniture.

    I'm not sure how Gigasports & Wellcome are going to fair out of this, but the furniture doesn't seem a wise move considering Ikea above it.

    Also caught the staff of Ikea on a team building event, 30 or so staff pushing around a red couch waving Swedish colour football batons around Kowloon Bay.

    Nice. I wanted to check out Uny, but I walked to Kowloon City and had a pretty good Vietnamese meal and a pint. Had a few more San Miguels in To Kwa Wan and now I'm on a minibus home.
