    Got talking about it in the Indian food thread, but figured it merited its own topic. They've got a store classified as 'Now Open' near the Panama City Mall. Which makes me a happy mouse because they carry some pantry staples for us that we can't find at other stores in the area.

    It's kind of like a Pier 1, but with a beer & wine and non-perishables foods of the world section. We go through a lot of the Indian simmer sauces they carry as well as no salt added Japanese noodles, and fixings for Thai and other Asian foods. They're got a small British food section, and an excellent junk foods of the world selection that gets even better when they bring in the Christmas sweets.

    Prices aren't great; if you can find it at Publix, it will probably be cheaper at the P. But they've got some unique stock. We had been heading to the store in Pensacola every 8-12 weeks, but it's more convenient for us to go to PC instead, and will make for a nice combo trip with Borders at Pier Park.

    oh my gosh - we LOVE LOVE LOVE world market!! have been shopping there in cincinnati for years. much cooler than pier one - not just great food and wine selections, but glassware, dishes, kitchen things, soaps, etc etc etc. great baskets. wonderful chocolate (especially with hot chili peppers). this is great news - we always said that world market would really fit in down here. needs to be at pier park! :clap:

    Anyone who's been in the OM house and seen our HUGE dining table.... it's from World Market! That and our telephone stands, our TV armoire....

    That rocks b/c I didn't want to drive to P'Cola to get more cool furniture!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mr. OM and I love the Indian/Asian feel to their decor and the fact that most items are not veneers!

    BTW, a similar but smaller dining table of the same wood was 3 times as much at Crate & Barrel.

    :clap:Thanks for this thread! It just made my night and I'm doing the happy dance!:wave:
