Manchester has a new specialty store: Pan-Asia Supermarket at 14246 Manchester Road.

The 30,000-square-foot grocery hosted its grand opening Saturday, July 22, and offers a wide variety of Asian products, including fresh seafood, dry goods, fruit and veggies, international liquors and spices.

This is the third location for the supermarket chain; it also has stores in Nebraska and Kansas. Store manager Ethan Lin said while Manchester had a few smaller Indian markets, it lacked a grocery with ingredients essential to other Asian cuisines.

“We are more focused on Asian [ingredients], and compared to other stores, we have a larger selection: more vegetables, more fruit, more meat and better pricing,” Lin said.

Pan-Asian offers national foods from China, Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and more. Kim said the store hosts a wide range of fresh produce from bok choy to dragon fruit and Korean brown pears, as well as a bakery. The deli selection features grab-and-go items like marinated beef and pork and roast duck.

“The [specialty] Kit-Kats and Pocky are popular with our American customers,” Lin said. “Right now [Americans] are probably 10 to 15 percent of our customers, and we hope that number will go up to 20 to 25 percent in the future.”

Pan-Asia Supermarket is open Sunday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
