all i can think of when i see this photo is "star trek".
the only futuristic thing about this grocery store, however, is that all the food is frozen! oooo! ahhh! the marvels of modern man! food, frozen at its freshest point in time, to be cooked and reheated later into a slightly mushy, less stellar version of its previous self!
apparently, these stores are incredibly popular - one can even order foods online to be delivered to one's home. i wonder if they deliver internationally? were i staying/living in france for a longer period of time than 1 week (and had access to a kitchen), perhaps i'd give it a try. the store is so strangely sterile, yet futuristically appealing. as though one should be wearing a space suit to wander the aisles. or at least, protective foot booties.
