It now includes two brand new outlets — Oyster Seafood Bar by Mercato and Mercato Cafe.
CEO Pierre-Olivier of GCH Retail (M), the parent company of Mercato, led the media on a tour of the store, stopping at the various counters to explain unique features.
Among the highlights were food produce, including a Taste Of Asia range with some 600 items from across Asian countries. There was also an impressive array of baklava and dates from the Middle East.
Celebrity chef Celina Khor demonstrated how simple it was to prepare a steak with mushroom sauce using ingredients from the store which had expanded the space for fresh produce with 35 per cent new products not available elsewhere in the country, including over 100 types of cheeses.
