It's a very large shopping center; half of the parking is above ground and the other half is underneath. There is a special escalator right as one enters the shopping center. The carts for the whole complex are kept in the subterranean parking garage and to bring them upstairs, one uses the escalator. I don't think I've ever seen this before when I was living in the US. I have seen this at other stores, too, like Kaufland, which is on the other side of town.

The underground parking garage is also the site of a weekend Flohmarkt, or flea market, on Saturdays. I stopped by on one Saturday during the winter. There were maybe about ten vendors with antiques, junk, and clothes.
