business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Orlando Weekly reports that "New Jersey-based Korean grocer H Mart is wading into the crowded grocery-store field here in Orlando" with a new location there that will be the first for the retailer in both the state and city.

According to the piece, "H Mart purchased the entire Westland Terrace Plaza at 7501 W Colonial Dr. earlier this month, according to OBJ, with plans to convert the space into an H Mart outpost much larger than the typical store's footprint.

H Mart is the biggest Asian supermarket chain in the country, with nearly 100 stores … H Mart offers up a myriad of fresh produce, fresh fish and seafood, noodles of every stripe, kimchi and other fermented vegetables, rice cakes, marinated meats, teas as far as the eye can see, and the obligatory 'much more'."

No opening date has been set for the store.
