Viet Wah Group recently announced the grand opening for the new location of their Renton store. Leeching Tran, vice president of Viet Wah Group, said of the change: “After being in Renton for the last 10 years, Viet Wah is excited to announce the grand opening of our brand new store location on 2825 NE Sunset Blvd. The new, larger store now features a deli and many upgrades from our previous location.”
Duc Tran, the founder of Viet Wah, came to Seattle as a refugee from Vietnam. He recognized the scarcity of familiar foods at the time, and started Viet Wah as a small shop in 1981 to provide Asian grocery items to others in the community. Viet Wah now has three locations and serves over 10,000 customers weekly.
Leeching Tran said she looks forward to the grand opening celebration, which will take place at the new location on Sunday, August 14 at 11:00am. The celebration will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, lion dancers blessing the store, free prizes for customers, and special opening deals.
