New Hong Kong Supermarket Opening in Chinatown

There is a new branch of the Hong Kong Supermarket opening on Hester between Elizabeth and Bowery at the end of the week, and the awning went up yesterday. This is exciting news considering that Dynasty Supermarket, located in the same building, has only been open in a very limited capacity for most of the past year. This could be because the new Hong Kong Supermarket is actually a partnership with the owners of Dynasty, but that is only a rumor. The new supermarket, which has another branch in Chinatown, will open this Friday, hoping that the date (8/8/08) will bring them prosperity—the number 8 is a very lucky number in Chinese. 157 Hester Street, New York, NY 10013 (nr.
