A new Asian grocery store is expected to open next month in Tupelo.
That’s a godsend to a lot of us who have to drive to Memphis to stock up on items you just can’t find locally.
U & Me Asian Grocery will be located at 620 N. Gloster Street, in the building adjacent to Ole State Grill and across from Woody’s.
There are several other businesses in the building in which U&Me is opening, including Matthew’s Shoe Repair.
Biz Buzz spoke briefly to the stores owner, who said it will carry a variety of Japanese, Chinese and Thai foods, spices and other dry goods. We’ll get more info next week when he’s in town and will pass along additional details.
He hopes to open in mid-April.
Long-time Biz Buzz readers will recall Tupelo had an Asian grocery store a few years back inside the now-defunct Thai City, but after there restaurant moved, that portion of the business slowly faded away.
