Besides the problems already mentioned, the new layout takes too much of space per item, and you can see only 10 items per page. In general, the layout does not make good use of space.
Other bad stuff:
Big sign: "See Our Specials" on the home page; yet the sign is not a hyperlink, and there is no sign of where to click to see the Specials
There is no visual cues to which graphic element is a hyperlink; you need to click on them to see if they are hyperlinks or not (typically, the mouse pointer changes from an arrow to a pointing finger if the element is a hyperlink)
I think it is a a poorly designed and poorly implemented web site. Really bad. I spend less that half a minute on the site, and had to leave. Would you trust such an implementation to provide secure e-commerce ?
I hope they will improve, as I like MPEX.
