The former U.S. Toy/Constructive Playthings facility located at 5314 Lincoln Avenue will soon be occupied by Skokie International Market, an independently-owned supermarket offering a wide variety of Asian products (including fresh seafood, exotic produce and Japanese snacks) as well as domestic foods, bakery items and beverages.
Mr. Yue Lieng, owner of several Chinatown markets and multiple wholesale operations in Illinois, New York and Texas, will open his first suburban Chicagoland location in Skokie this fall, following several delays due to the pandemic and worldwide supply chain issues. The newly rehabilitated 17,000-square-foot grocery store will feature fully upgraded interiors as well as plenty of lot parking for areawide customers. The owner also is considering future potential catering and restaurant options at the site. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting new development. Thank you for your investment in Skokie, Mr. Yue Lieng!
