America's Most European Supermarket

Since Treasure Island took over the old 55th street co-op, I've wondered why it calls itself "America's Most European Supermarket". I think it's supposed to mean that it's fancy, but as Melody has pointed out, it more obviously suggests that it's small and you have to pay extra for bags and bag your own groceries.

Melody and I discovered that Treasure Island stocks PG Tips, Heinz baked beans, and HP sauce, which are essential elements of an English breakfast.

So, if Britain is European, then Treasure Island has earned its title.
