No Jungle Jim's for Oakley

I guess we shouldn't be surprised that Jungle Jim's dropped their plans for a new store in Oakley. Bummer. I guess it would be hard to compete with Fresh Market (opened July 2006) and Wild Oats.

I haven't been up to Jungle Jim's in a while, but I probably should go check it out. I generally pick up a couple of fun cheeses, and always get great wine recommendations from the guys in the wine department. (They turned me on to Borsao - a great cheap Spanish red that's never failed me. Check out the upcoming tastings.) And the all-natural, slow roasted Amish chicken in the deli looks awesome. Too bad it's not closer to me that I can swing by before dinner after work.

They need to build one on the KY side. Their would be NO competition. They should look at Union or Hebron. Both are growing like mad. We in NKY like great produce and a great selection!! Pick us, Pick us!

I have to say I'm glad they're not building another JJ's. Part of the draw of JJ is the unique stuff in a HUGE location. I swear every time I go there, it's bigger and different. You couldn't get the same kind of drama in a strip mall location.
