iFresh Inc.’s 100-percent-owned subsidiary New York Mart North Miami Inc. is opening a new location in North Miami. The supermarket, located at 551 NE 167th Street, is expected to hold its grand opening ceremony on Feb. 7.
Located in the heart of a densely populated metro area with a large Asian demographic, the new 30,000-s.f. supermarket has undergone almost four years of construction and renovation to accommodate a wide variety of commercial spaces. The new iFresh location will be the largest supermarket in the area, offering a diverse selection of specialty Asian foods, snacks, beverages and household goods. The supermarket also will feature a wide selection of locally sourced and seasonal produce and goods. NYM N. Miami plans to lease additional planned commercial space to local businesses, and thus far has leased a portion of the space to a spa, a Chinese tea store and liquor stores. The new iFresh location will have seven food vendors within the supermarket.
Long Deng, CEO and chairman of iFresh, said, “I am excited to announce the grand opening of a new iFresh location in North Miami. This is by far the largest investment in one supermarket that we have made, with over $8 million invested in total. We are committed to creating a multi-purpose destination to elevate the shopping experience for our customers where shopping, dining and leisure will be provided with an array of quality choices.”
iFresh Inc., headquartered in Long Island City, New York, is an Asian American grocery supermarket chain and online grocer. It has nine retail supermarkets along the U.S. Eastern Seaboard (with additional stores in Glen Cove, New York; Miami, Florida; and Connecticut opening soon), and two in-house wholesale businesses strategically located in cities with a highly concentrated Asian population.
