Earlier this evening, the new Metro Market, 4075 N. Oakland Ave. in Shorewood, hosted a sneak peek and ribbon cutting celebration with copious samples for the few hundred people in attendance – many of whom were visibly "wow-ed."

The 90,000-square foot, environmentally friendly structure is sleek, spacious and thoughtfully laid out on two connected floors.

The new structure also features a multi-level parking garage which simplifies navigating shopping carts to vehicles.

The ground floor offers fresh food and upscale grab-and-go items, including a Starbucks coffee shop, bakery, gelato counter, meat department, 12-tap beer bar, rolled-to-order sushi station, oyster bar, BBQ walk-up, blend-your-own trail mix and more.

The second floor features a large liquor department, pharmacy, traditional grocery aisles and frozen food section.

Throughout the store, there is an emphasis on organic, vegan and gluten-free foods.

Three months ago, Wisconsin Roundy's became a subsidiary of the Kroger Co. The new Metro Market development is based on Mariano's Fresh Market in Chicago, offering the possibility of a leisurely shopping experience rather than a perfunctory task.

For those of us who remember the former Pick 'n Save or the crescent-roofed Kohl's before that, it's an unbelievably spacious, modern and abundant offering.

The Shorewood Metro Market opens to the public Tuesday, Feb. 16.
