                  No it's not that large and it is a little more costly than regular supermarkets (actually owned by Kitchen Table ) perhaps not as good as some (KT) but it is open 24 hrs a day & 7 days a week...I have never seen it closed even for Holidays...
                  I live in the area but only use it in a pinch ...that said, they often have better prices than the 'chains' on Strawberries! (we eat them year round!)

                  Forgot to mention of course that Summerhill Market is open on Easter Sunday (save you the trouble Millygirl!)-

                  Yes, Bruno's is a bit pricier than your average large grocery store but the quality is good, especially meats, prepared foods and deli counter. As for size, well it's not as big as a Loblaws or Sobeys but you can definitely get everything you need, plus more perhaps. I'd say it's big enough.

                  If you're driving, there is free parking at Summerhill's but can get crowded when busy. For Bruno''s on Yonge, there's a Green P behind the building, get your receipt validated at the cash-out.

              I just found out that IGA is open.. but the one on the danforth is pretty small.. does anyone know if the one on queen st e, islington or parkway forest drive are larger?
