Just a heads up that the Pulaski Hi-Mart has completed it's transition from Asian restaurant, home and kitchen supply store to Asian, with an emphasis on Korean, grocery. Hi-Mart continues to carry an incredible variety of kitchen and restaurant supplies, in addition to the grocery items.
Similar to Hi-Mart's sister store, Chicago Food Corp, there is a small cafe, fresh produce, fish and meat along with dry goods and an amazing array of products, including multiple types of kimchee. There is also a large selection of such diverse items as rice cookers, Japanese sushi/sashimi/vegetable knives and cartoon lunch boxes.
There's also a sneeze-proof-panchan bar, in case anyone was wondering.
