The Inno supermarket chain is in the festive spirit for the Year of the Golden Pig, an event that comes along once every 60 years. Flying dragons, lanterns, fans and other colourful decorations hovered over stacks of ingredients for Chinese food. The store also featured a display of Chinese herbs and spices and another of Japanese bonsai trees, which were labeled "Chinois et Japon."
