T&T Supermarkets has announced it will soon open a store in the U.S. The company confirmed the new store will open in the summer of 2024 in Bellevue, Wash., in the Marketplace at Factoria. At 76,000 square feet, it will be the largest Asian supermarket in the state, and a flagship store for T&T, headquartered in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. Loblaw owns T&T Supermarkets.
Filled with the Asian cuisine, the new location will feature a sushi counter, hot food bar, noodle station, and in-store kitchen and bakery for freshly prepared delicacies like steam buns and pork belly bao, as well as Asian pastries and cakes. The store will also be home to more than 300 of T&T's private label products.
"T&T's anchor tenancy at Marketplace at Factoria begins an exciting chapter for the property, which includes new residential, retail, and dining experiences," said Carmen Decker, President of Kimco Realty's Western Region.
The store will create over 300 jobs for the local community and is planning to hold its first job fair this summer for supervisors and above positions.
Additionally, T&T will be establishing a regional office in the greater Los Angeles area and is immediately hiring for office positions like buyers and category managers.
