H Mart is About to Open!

H Mart, a Korean supermarket chain with a wide array of hard-to-find specialty items, is about to open its doors at 110th Street and Broadway. Employees are telling people the opening will either happen today or Friday.

The shelves — including the produce section — are now well-stocked. I

The New Jersey based chain has a location in Korea Town (32nd Street) and lately has been opening new locations throughout the country. The stores sell fruit, vegetables, fish and many Korean specialties, including snacks and sushi-like Kimbap rolls.

      Can’t wait. Would always go to 32nd street location. Yes, this is a win for our neighborhood.

      If this is like the H Mart in Fort Lee, it will have a terrific fish department! They’re great.

      It was open this evening…

    11. Diane says:

      Very excited! I hope the prices are the same as the New Jersey locations. Hard to imagine that they will be given the rent that they will be paying

    12. Ellen Count says:

      Agree with Sharon, would like to know exact location – what store did it replace? I don’t recognize the (new?) building through the window above eat-in counter….

    13. TH says:

      H Mart is open but the configuration of the cash registers and the one HUGE line around the store to pay for your goods, don’t work. I hope this is addressed soon.
