Things are happening at Urbana’s forthcoming H Mart

Alyssa Buckley

After a long, long wait, things are finally happening at the spot for our very own H Mart grocery store. Even in the yesterday’s rain, there were construction vehicles and workers starting to renovate Urbana’s vacant Save A Lot location on Broadway Avenue into the popular Korean grocery store.

H Mart is the largest Asian supermarket chain in the U.S. with over 100 locations nationwide. The H in H Mart stands for “han ah reum,” Korean for an armful of groceries. The new Urbana store will offer produce, pantry goods, seafood, and everyday essentials, plus an in-store food hall.

The exterior of Urbana's H Mart grocery store has a sign that reads "Coming soon" beside Broadway Avenue.

No opening date for the Urbana H Mart has been announced at this time, but it is so exciting to see the work starting because that means it’s really, truly happening.
