Christmas is here with us again, well in a matter of a week's time. This is a season that comes with the joys of spending time with family as well as exchanging gifts. The season also has its own Christmas shopping fever a time when people rush in and out of store for presents, outfits and most importantly food at the last minute. Now we can all agree that the latter is the most important since most families love sharing a meal during this special day. Now imagine if you were to find all the different kinds of food you need as well as last-minute gifts in one place, all under the same roof?
