QUEENS, N.Y. (PIX11) — The flagship H Mart in Queens reopened its doors on Thursday after completing renovations.

The popular Asian grocery chain located at 59-18 Woodside Ave. first opened in 1982. It serves a selection of produce, meat, Asian-inspired products, and ready-to-cook meals.

In a social media post, one customer celebrated the reopening while sharing photos of vibrant bouquets outside the store and freshly stocked shelves inside.

The Woodside location had reportedly been closed since 2021, which left people in the local community disheartened and awaiting its return.
