Global Asian grocery chain setting up North Burnaby store

Sungiven Foods – a global chain of Asian-themed grocery stores – looks to be setting up shop in the Heights neighbourhood of North Burnaby.

The old Westminster Savings branch at the corner of Gilmore and Hastings has a large sign spread across its windows about Sungiven Foods “now hiring” with a website address and phone number for applicants. A call to Sungiven by the NOW was not returned for comment.
