The gourmet section is on the 6th floor and is a food lover's delight, with many delicacies, both sweet and savory, for sale as well as more basic items such as fruit, vegetables and meat. Each counter is dedicated to a specific food sourced from local and international suppliers.
Restaurants and cafes are interspersed throughout the store, offering a wide choice of foods which should satisfy everyone's tastes. Spirits, wines and beers are also for sale.
