H Mart, the largest Asian supermarket chain in the U.S., has announced its commitment to customer safety and community development.

H Mart hosted a community safety and development meeting at the H Mart Garden Grove store on June 7 with H Mart CEO Il Yeon Kwon, 45th Congressional District Representative Michelle Park Steel, Garden Grove Mayor Steve Jones, Garden Grove Police Captain Brian Dalton, and other officials and residents.

“We are making various efforts to provide a safe shopping environment for our customers, including enhancing our in-store and out-of-store surveillance systems, increasing security staffing, and conducting emergency drills,” said the grocery chain. “We will continue to work with the local community to provide a safer and more convenient shopping experience for our customers and contribute to the development of the community.”
