Grocery giant Loblaws opened its newest outlet today, a 5,800 square kilometer complex in the west end of Ottawa that will meet absolutely every conceivable consumer need imaginable.
Every item that is legally sellable in Canada can be found in the store; from piano tuning forks to deluxe leaf mulchers to three-quarter inch stove bolts to late model Sherman tanks, according to the store's manager, Basil Dubrovny.
"Our new Grate Canadian Super Duper Mega Panopticon Store has everything in it," insisted the manager, "and I'm not saying that as a figure of speech. It actually contains the entire western half of the city of Ottawa, as well as a significant chunk of the rest of Eastern Ontario."
