T&T Supermarket has announced it will open a second store in Burnaby, B.C., at Gilmore Place in the summer of 2025. It is also planning to expand in the U.S. with a second store in Seattle, Washington, also slated to open in the summer of 2025. Last year, the Asian grocery chain announced its entry into the U.S. market with a flagship store in Bellevue, Washington.

“We’re so excited to expand our presence in Burnaby with a second store,” says Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarket Inc. “Currently, we have one T&T in Burnaby, and that’s at Metrotown Mall. If you’ve ever been there on a weekend, you’ll know it’s jam packed. This additional store will allow us to better serve such a rapidly growing urban hub.”    

Located at Suite 110 – 4112 Lougheed Highway, the new store will be part of a new mixed-use development by ONNI Group. The development will feature diverse retail concepts, restaurants, and B.C.’s tallest residential tower. It’s also near Gilmore SkyTrain Station, a major stop on the Millennium SkyTrain Line.

At 55,000 square feet, the location will feature the full range of T&T’s assortment, including Asian snacks, produce, live seafood, bakery, skincare, gifts and in-store prepared foods. In addition, T&T at Gilmore will have distinguishing features such as popular street foods like popcorn chicken, sticky rice wraps and Chinese crêpes.

Lee says of T&T’s expansion into the U.S. that the company “never stopped looking at locations in Washington after the announcement of our flagship store in Bellevue. There’s excellent growth potential here, and although we originally planned on only committing to a second location after Bellevue opens, we just couldn’t resist this opportunity. It’s a great location in a former grocery box – at 30,000 square feet, it’s a fitting size for Lynnwood.”
