North Quincy will now be home to the first New England location of a West Coast-based Asian supermarket chain, with the store taking the space left by the Big Y store that closed in August.
The store, 99 Ranch Market, is now hiring and will be opening its 60,000-square-foot space in January, reports the Patriot Ledger.
The chain was founded by Taiwanese immigrant Roger Chen in 1984 and now has more than 50 stores nationwide, with most locations located in California, according to the store’s website and store locator.
