NEW YORK, Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iFresh, Inc. (“iFresh” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: IFMK), a leading Asian American grocery supermarket chain and online grocer, today announced its progress in opening its Glen Cove, Long Island supermarket.
On November 29, 2018, iFresh’s Glen Cove, Long Island supermarket received its Temporary Certificate of Occupancy, which allows the supermarket to open to the public during the interim period before it receives a final Certificate of Occupancy. iFresh plans to open the Glen Cove, Long Island supermarket to customers before the end of the calendar year.
iFresh’s new supermarket will offer a selection of specialty Asian foods, snacks, beverages, and household items. The store will provide fresh produce daily and also offer home delivery through iFresh’s e-commerce platform. iFresh also plans to open locations in North Miami, Florida and Milford, Connecticut in 2019.
Mr. Long Deng, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of iFresh, Inc., commented, “We see great opportunities in Long Island’s Nassau County, given its large and growing Asian population. Among other new features, customers at this location will have the opportunity to purchase a variety of fresh ingredients, including live seafood that can be prepared onsite in our food court at competitive prices. As an example, we expect that our customers will be able to enjoy a cooked lobster for only $10-$15, as compared to a typical restaurant that might charge between 3 to 5 times as much for the same dish. In addition to these cost benefits, our guests will enjoy the experience of personally selecting ingredients and having them cooked fresh onsite. As iFresh evolves, we will continue to innovate and offer new options to cater to our loyal customer base.”
