The new location of Viet Wah Supermarket, at 2825 Sunset Blvd. in Renton, is across the street from its former location. Duc Tran, founder of Viet Wah, said the lease at the old site expired. He said the new location, formerly a thrift store, is not only bigger (16,500 sq. ft.) but makes customers feel comfortable.
The grand opening on Aug. 14 saw over 200 guests, including Lt. Gov. Brad Owen and State Sen. Bob Hasegawa. Dragon and lion dances were performed simultaneously. This is Viet Wah’s second location. Founded in 1981, the original store is in the Chinatown International District.
