FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) --The Island Pacific Supermarket has been very busy since it recently opened a new store at First and Bullard Avenues.
They celebrated their grand opening Friday.
The store includes an in-house restaurant which serves traditional Filipino-American meals. You can also find freshly baked breads and pastries.
Marketing manager Charina Carrera says the supermarket chain serves a rapidly increasing Filipino-American community. "We're very much happy with the turn out of this store," she said. "As you can see, every day there's a line in our deli and there's a line in our bakery."
Island Pacific Supermarket now has 15 stores in California and Seattle.
The new Northeast Fresno location is the chain's first in the Central Valley.
