TOLEDO, Ohio — Kirin Asian Mart is ringing in the new year by ringing up customers eagerly shopping at Toledo’s largest Asian supermarket.
Although the family-owned store on Secor Road in west Toledo specializes in Asian groceries and goods, its owners aim for a wide appeal. Toledo’s diversity is what drew store manager Vicky Wang’s family to the Glass City to open a second supermarket around 20 years after opening their first near Ann Arbor.
“I know that this is more of a diverse area, so we’re not only focused on the Asian population,” Wang said. “We want to introduce the different kinds of Asian food to the community, too.”
