Cary already has a strong slate of Asian grocery stores that includes Grand Asia Market, Patel Brothers, S Mart, and Toyo Shokuhin, but it now has another major player: H Mart. The major Korean grocery chain with almost sixty locations nationwide opened its first North Carolina store in Cary near the intersection of Davis Drive and High House Road last week.

The store’s grand opening Thursday morning was grand indeed, with hundreds of people crowded outside waiting for the doors to open at ten o’clock sharp. In addition to standard grocery offerings, H Mart has a massive selection of everything from produce to cookware from Korea, Japan, and China. Oh, and there’s a whole wall of kimchi, too.
