Super 88 Closing 3 Storefronts

10/13/2008 12:01:00 AM
I used to get all my Asian groceries from Super 88 - particularly the one near BU. Lately, though, I've noticed that a few of the storefronts were running a little bare on inventory. An article in the Globe yesterday confirmed that they are indeed going to close three of their stores.

In the past month, the Boston-based Asian food grocery chain, which specializes in Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Thai, and other Southeast Asian goods, closed three small stores, in Quincy, the South End, and its original location in Chinatown, which opened in 1978.

Frank said the company will now refocus the business on its larger, remaining stores, in Allston, Dorchester, and Malden - which are all 20,000 square feet or larger.

I do most of my Asian grocery shopping in Chinatown, so I guess my business will be going to C-Mart instead.

Good luck to the folks at Super 88 as they try to revamp their business.
