TradeViet Specialty Asian Foods is taking over the old Hastings Entertainment space on Overland Rd. in Boise.
The large former books and music store has been transformed into a specialty foods grocer focusing on Asian products, as well as a new restaurant facility.
Hastings left the Treasure Valley in 2016 - leaving medium-sized box spaces open in a variety of areas. In SE Boise, the store was converted into a new D&B Supply, while the store on Fairview is slated to be partially demolished to make way for CVS.
Another, slightly smaller, Asian supermarket is planned for Cole Rd. and Ustick in Boise - part of an idea to remodel a shopping center with Asian-style architecture.
