"History is always happening" at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site
Sue Khoo, the longtime owner of Unique Furniture in Jacksonville, has opened an Asian grocery in the Broadmoor Shopping Center at 3002 S. University. In a 12,000-square-foot space, Asian Mart offers groceries from China, Cambodia, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Thailand, with a bakery and a large produce section.
After the first of the year, Khoo plans to open a restaurant within the grocery. She says she'll offer a lot of combo meals, with Asian and American options, items like sweet and sour pork, Mongolian pork, fried shrimp and fish and French fries.
Asian Mart is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
