Hmart, an Asian-American supermarket chain, is coming to lower Westchester.
The grocery chain will open a store in the former Pathmark location in Yonkers’ Highridge Plaza, the plaza’s management group announced Wednesday.
The chain is known for offering a mix of Asian specialties and standard groceries.
“Our stores combine the full-scale offering of traditional supermarkets with a full line of Asian groceries,” said Sam Q. Kim, director of marketing and planning for Hmart.
Hmart has more than 50 stores in 11 states, including one in Hartsdale.
“This will have a positive impact on Highridge Plaza, drawing thousands of customers per week while providing Yonkers with a top-tier grocer to serve the community,” said Barry Rodenstein, the North Region president for Brixmor Property Group, which operates Highridge Plaza.

Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano said Hmart provides “a nice complement to the diverse mix of prominent national and local retailers already operating at Highridge Plaza.”
The store will open sometime in the fourth quarter of 2016, according to the release.
