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.
