Hong Kong Supermarket relocating in Tacoma's Lincoln district; there's a ceremony slated for Sunday morning

Staff writerApril 11, 2014 

A dragon will dance, firecrackers will explode and the mayor will cut a bright red ribbon.

The Lincoln District will welcome a new neighbor – actually, a long-time neighbor moving to a new location – on Sunday morning.

Mayor Marilyn Strickland will cut the ceremonial ribbon at an event beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Hong Kong Supermarket at the site of the former Lincoln Bowl at 3828 S. Yakima.

The Asian specialty market had been located on 38th Street, and the owners saw an opportunity to move to the new location after a roof collapse at the former bowling alley’s roof, said the project architect, Jennifer Weddermann, on Friday.

The owners have invested some $2.5 million in the project, she said, and have not yet announced plans for the 38th Street site.

Also on Sunday, visitors can look forward to an array of free snacks and samples inside the store.
