Good section of all kinds of foods. Separate Indian section, though not all of the spices available. Haldirams roti available. Good collection for foods from different countries, fresh fruits and vegetables available.
Two issues - (1) Things go bad before the printed expiry date. (2) At the counter if you don't keep a close eye a lot of time they charge more than what's marked on the shelves.
Unfortunately at this store you always have to keep a "very close eye" on prices at the counter. I have been shopping there for years now, this is the closest grocery store so even though over the years their prices have gone up and I have had issues where milk will go bad 1 week before the expiry date (and we don't keep the milk out of fridge more than seconds when we pour it in the bowl or cup) it happened more times that I can count!! Recently even their close slaw mix went bad before expiry date. They use a wrong price (higher than listed) on random items if you don't keep a close eye. I've caught it 4 times and corrected it ($9 instead of $3, $5 instead of $2 etc.) but I am sure there were times when I didn't know or notice and I got charged more than what I should have. I haven't completely stopped shopping there because of the location proximity but I definitely do prefer the other stores now that are around now and my trips to Global foods for everything has been reduced now" because of these reasons.
I love the variety of this place. They have really worked hard revamping the place the past year. My husband says it's too dirty but it has the best produce in the area! I can find some rare items here at fantastic prices. Shop here weekly!
It is a nice place to shop for African foods or groceries. The reason why I gave 4 star and not 5 is that the cashiers don't smile at the customers. They express sadness or uptight attitude. The manager should see to this asap.
Both Hmart and Global Food accept WIC if you have this benefit, I found Mama (Thai instant noodle) at global only $0.39 (3 for 1 if buying 3, too) which are even better price than amazon Prime, for produces (some fruits are cheaper at Hmart, some are more expensive, depending on which week, today Global food has seedless grapes(black $1.79/lb, red $1.49/lb, green $1.99/lb) banana $0.49/lb, strawberry $4.99, 5 kiwi for $2.98 while hmart grape $2.99/lb, banana $0.59/lb, tomato (Roma/beef steak) $0.99, 2 lb. kiwi for $3 etc. They both offer authentic fruit which is quiet same price.
The store nice and clean and I like the way they organize it's by country too.
And the better thing than Hmart,they allows you push theirs shopping carts to your car, not kidding, shopping at Hmart is a pain in the butt, they have metal bars blocking theirs shopping carts to go to the parking lots.
Hmart offer, meat slightly cheaper. (Chicken Drum $0.49-69/lb, global $0.99. They both are cheaper than Walmart and Giant in this point.
But if you want regular grocery, Walmart will probably win the price, such as Walmart 1 gallon whole milk @$1.58, here at Hmart or Global they both @$2.99 but all 3 have used growth hormone, I prefer $1.99 giant whole milk (no hormone used).
If you like chips or goodies, stickers, stuffs for kids may be you can swing by dollar tree behind global, some items that not usually sell as much as $1 also sell at a dollar but most items in general, such a deal.
Wide selection of international products but they're not consistent with their supply.. We found a particular pastry dough that we liked.. Looked for it on three separate trips and couldn't find it.. Still a terrific place.. A little pricey though
They have a good verity of halal meat and a large selection of sea food. Fresh produce and meat. I have been to a few halal meat places where the meat smells funky. This place has fresh meat. Good place for you to go check out for your self.
1. The store stinks.
2. The store employees are incredibly rude.
3. The prices are ridiculously outrageous.
4. There are only 2 isles designated for what is considered "America. Food".
5. There is no pharmacy.
I've been living in this neighborhood for almost 9 years. This neighborhood is very diverse and a melting pot for many different nationalities, but this ridiculous. When Safeway closed, we called for a grocer that could at least provide the same quality of services as we had before. When you walk in the store you can smell all of the fish and seafood that they have sitting out on the sales floor in bins. You can also smell the dead rotting blue crabs that sell for 1.99/lbs. The meat looks dirty and turns gray rather soon after you purchase.
And something is surely not right when back of the building smells worst than a garbage landfill. Everything about this store is disgusting and wrong. I really don't understand how they pass health inspections!
I was very happy to see the store open close to my house. They have several food selection from different cultures. I question the freshness of the seafood because of the way they're displayed (on top of ice in bins and open to anything flying by to land on).
The strong unpleasant smell to the store always makes me gag when I enter.
Flies everywhere by the fish section.
As for racist and rude employees: true. I personally didnt pay attention to it but I encountered it with few of the managers. They don't want u asking questions and they always frown their faces. I think it might be a cultural thing. But I always try to say hello regardless. You cant change people but u can change your attitude.
The price is also very high! I still prefer HMart off Georgia than this place.
