Shun Fat Supermarket Opening SOON!

We told you last August about the former Fred Meyer site on 82nd and Foster Rd becoming a Shun Fat Supermarket —

Well it seems the opening date is nearly here! We were alerted by your neighbor, Eric Swedberg, via a Facebook message —

Shun Fat put up banners on Saturday, “Opening Soon”, the Shun Fat parent website is now accepting applications for employment, a worker outside told me they’re opening in June, but he didn’t know the exact day.

To whet your appetite for the new market to join our neighborhood, here is an article posted on Epicurious a couple years ago about Shun Fat Supermarkets.


New Coffee Shop Coming to Foster Road

Have you noticed the work being done on the former Blake’s Decorette building at 5338 SE Foster Rd (map)?

We communicated with the owner of the building, Jonathan Hooker, to get the scoop.

Yes, there is a coffee shop going in. I don’t want to talk too many details about the shop just yet as things are still getting completely ironed out but we’ve been working on it since last summer and coffee shop is on our permit, set so it’s 100% happening.

Other than the coffee shop, which will be in the downstairs corner, we’ll be utilizing the rest of the building as the office for my business, Oblio.

The architecture firm is Wright Architecture. Jonathan provided a link to the design. Note: the color scheme shown is not final.

We’re excited to welcome the new coffee shop and Oblio to the neighborhood!
