H Mart to open location in Utah


The popular Korean grocery store H Mart is preparing to open a new location in West Jordan, Utah.

According to ABC 4, the new H Mart will be at the location of an old K-Mart at 1442 West and 9000 South. A spokesperson said they are hoping to open the location by the end of the year.

The Asian population in Utah has been steadily growing. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, 2020 U.S. Census Bureau data found that Asians were the fastest-growing minority population by percentage in the state during the past decade, with an increase of 50%.

Asian Americans across the state have also been working hard to empower their communities. A few weeks ago, hundreds of people came together for the Utah Asian Festival. The festival originally launched in 1977 and has grown ever since, KSL reports.

H Mart’s popularity has also increased over the last few years. In addition to the West Jordan location, the grocery chain is also planning on opening a location in Sacramento, California, Yahoo Sports reports.
