The title of this post might make you think that there is an Asian shopping area and/or restaurants in West Jordan similar to other cities such as San Francisco’s China Town.
Well, there might be but what I’m talking about is the name of a store – Asian City. We discovered this emporium while searching for bonsai trees and the instant we walked in, we loved the place.
Located on the corner of Redwood Rd and 90th South, it is in the building that used to be an Albertsons Grocery Store and has been opened for 3 years.
If you like Asian items and great prices, you’ve got to visit. That is, if you live in West Jordan or Salt Lake County. They sell so many different items: dresses, shoes, scarves, jewelry, cosmetics, restaurant supplies, swords, statues, bamboo plants, bonsais, kitchenware, cookware, tea sets, sake sets, items for the home, Feng Shui, Hello Kitty, chopsticks, Chinese New Year supplies, Tibetan prayer beads and so much more.
We wandered up and down the aisles looking at all their fun products. Chopsticks – there was such a variety of beautifully designed chopsticks and even disposable. They also had training chopsticks for young children with cute animals that held the chopsticks together.
There was an assortment of Kwan Yin and Buddha statues along with others in all sizes.
Take a look at their website: Asian City I know one thing. We’ll be back many times for goodies we couldn’t afford on this trip.
For those of you that are far away from this marvelous store, I hope you have one like this near you.
To run a store takes a lot of hard work and belief that you can make it a success. Obviously the owners of Asian City believe in their abilities and what a joy it is to have this store nearby.
Believe in yourself and dream above the clouds. You never know what you’ll achieve.
