Asian grocer H-Mart said Wednesday that it’s wrapping up work on its first Austin-area location, with an expected opening date sometime in mid-January.
The 68,670-square-foot store will be at 11301 Lakeline Blvd. near Lakeline Mall in Northwest Austin, taking over a pair of storefronts in the Parkline shopping center that were vacated in recent years by Bed Bath & Beyond and Sports Authority.
H-Mart currently has 60-plus locations nationwide, including ones in the Dallas and Houston areas, and plans to open 15 new stores in 2018.
The Austin H-Mart will be the chain’s first to feature a food hall. The food hall, which will be known as Market Eatery, will feature multiple food concepts under one roof. Some will be local, while others will be nationally known.
Eateries that will be featured in the Market Eatery at Austin’s H-Mart are:
Non-food vendors will include:
Market Eatery will also serve beer, wine and sake, with daily drink specials planned.
