H Mart will celebrate the grand opening of its third Irvine location at the Northpark Plaza. H Mart’s new 53,000 square foot space in Irvine is set to open on Wednesday, Jan. 11, and will feature unique cultural spaces, along with an H Mart Food Court. 

They will be hosting a grand opening celebration at 10 a.m. on opening day, and will be offering a free gift giveaway for shoppers – current and new H Mart Smart Card holders will receive a free Thermos mug and H Mart 2023 Calendar. Shoppers can also receive a melamine tray, rubber gloves, plastic double basket or bamboo chopsticks with purchases over $30.

Speaking on the Northpark Plaza opening Brian Kwon, President of H Mart, said food is a significant aspect of culture, and he hopes to continue H Mart’s success in Irvine with the brand’s “one-stop shop” approach.

“We enrich lives with our Asian heritage, food and culture. Carrying over from H Mart’s previous successes in more than 14 stores in Southern California including H Mart Irvine in Diamond Jamboree Shopping Center, Westpark Plaza and now at Northpark Plaza, this will be another food lover’s destination in the city of Irvine,” he said. “A place to experience the best of what communities have to offer, providing a convenient ‘one-stop shopping’ place for diverse cultures and to the neighborhood, where different ethnicities of friends and neighbors can come, gather and enjoy. The main priority for H Mart is always to serve and satisfy the needs of the surrounding communities.”

The H Mart Food court will feature a variety of vendors including Changwadang: Korean Dumplings, Moobongri Soondae: Korean Soondae Soup House, Cho Dang Tofu House: Korean Style Tofu House & BBQ, and Paik’s Noodle: Korean Style Chinese Cuisine. There will also be a bakery and Korean street food vendors.
Irvine’s third H Mart location becomes the family-owned grocery chain’s 16th in California, and part of a growing network of more than 70 stores across the nation. H Mart also has seven stores in Canada.

“I’m very excited for the opening of H Mart in Northpark,” Irvine Mayor Farrah Khan said. “Their selections of fruits and vegetables to seafood provide the type of variety and quality our residents desire. I wish them much success.”

H Mart officially opened its second Irvine location in August at the Westpark Plaza. The Northpark location was previously occupied by Albertsons.  

H-Mart Northpark Plaza is located at 3931 Irvine Blvd.
