Why no Gigantic Asian Supermarkets in NY?

halokiti | Jan 28, 2007 12:21 AM

I have to post this question since it seems metro NY(not including NJ) is the only major Asian area without a gigantic Asian supermarket. And also no Asian malls either. Why is that? Is it the rent or the lack of space? I don't think there's a lack of interest, enough Asian people with the right demographics live in the suburbs to support such a store.
