Asian Market (Hong Chang Hang), 18 Diamond Lane: Late 2000s (moved)   1 comment

Posted at 1:47 am in closing

OK, I'll admit that I'm not 100% sure that the Asian Market on Diamond Lane is the same one that opened recently across from Dutch Square at 1221 Bakersfield Road, but given the timing and the same marquee description, I think it's a pretty good bet (and I'm sure someone will set me straight otherwise).

I used to notice this place when I would cut through the mostly dead Intersection Center to see what remained and marvel that it was still in business. I guess part of that is that it's a destination -- if you need something that's historically exotic to SC and that you can't just hop-to-the-pig for, it doesn't matter if the store is off the beaten track. Still, I was glad to see them move to a better location. (Though believe it or not, a few stores are still have their doors open on Diamond Lane!). I got the Hong Chang Hang part of the name from here, as Chinese is Greek to me :-)

I was a bit surprised to see the address of the new store as Bakersfield Road -- if you had asked me I would have said the street was Dutch Square Boulevard all the way from Broad River Road to Bush River Road.

UPDATE 22 January 2020: Update tags, add map icon.

  1. Yes, just so you know, it is the same family who opened and operates this new (well, sort of new now) store.

    My mother and I would always go to the old store, across from the closed Intersection Center, and would get spring roll wrappings and asian coffee and candy. When they moved; I wondered if it was them, and the daughter greeted me as she usually did when she was there!

    I still occasionally go to their store, it's really nice and they take SNAP benefits as well, which is helpful.
