H-Mart announces its first Nevada opening in Las Vegas

H-Mart, a popular Korean grocery store chain with nearly 100 locations in the U.S., plans to open its first Nevada store at 2620 South Decatur Blvd, Las Vegas, later this year.

The nearly 55,000-square-feet store will offer traditional Asian foods in addition to international and other essential food products, according to Eater Las Vegas.

“H-Mart will become a place to experience the best of what communities have to offer, providing a convenient one-stop shopping place for diverse cultures and to the neighborhood, where different ethnicities of friends and neighbors can come, gather, and enjoy,” said Brian Kwon, the president of H-Mart, in a statement, Eater Las Vegas reported. 

Construction is underway, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported; however, no major structural work has been completed with no aisles or equipment having been installed as of early February. 

The H-Mart store, located in the Sahara Pavilion South shopping center, will share a parking lot with the Korean restaurant Daeho Kalbijjim, which is scheduled to open this May, according to Eater Las Vegas

H-Mart will expand community members’ Korean grocery shopping options, in addition to the nearby Greenland Market in the Korean Town Plaza on Spring Mountain Road. 

“We’ve been all anticipating and waiting for the H Mart to open because H mart is one of the largest Asian American food chains in America,” said Jeannie Kim, president of the Korean American Chamber of Commerce, to 8 News Now. “It’s coming to Las Vegas and that is just awesome, rather than just one Korean market. Now we have competition which means we’re going to get better service; the price will be better for customers like us.”

Las Vegas’ store will house a food court that offers dining in and take-out orders, including the Korean fried chicken restaurant BBQ Chicken, the traditional Korean noodle restaurant Moobongri Soondae and the traditional South Korean street food eatery Jopok Topokki. 

“I’m really excited, I was actually counting down when H mart was coming into town because I do love going to different Asian grocery stores but it would be nice to have a one-stop shop,” said Soo Jin Yang, a local business owner, to 8 News Now.
