Asian supermarket 99 Ranch plans to open at least three stores in New Jersey this year, according to published reports. The first store, a 60,000 square foot former Pathmark, opened recently in Edison, NJ, about a mile from an H Mart, which is also an Asian grocery chain. Locations are also slated for Jersey City and Hackensack.

The chain is owned and operated by California-based Tawa Supermarket, Inc. and has 42 additional locations in its home state, Washington, Nevada and Texas.

99 Ranch focuses on products from China, but also includes a broad assortment of foods from other Asian countries including India and the Philippines.
