History[edit]

In 2011 PARKnSHOP opened its first store outside China as Jusgo Supermarket in Houston. The supermarket chain leased 25,000 square feet in Diho Plaza to account for an Asian supermarket, which was built with traditional Chinese architecture elements including green tile roof and sports red posts.[3][4] Jusgo contributes to a major part of Houston Chinatown for grocery along with Great Wall Supermarket.

In Plano, a suburb of Dallas, Texas, Jusgo Supermarket opened its second location in 2011. The location used to be owned by Asia World Market, which had moved there from Richardson. This Jusgo location has multiple stores inside it including a Hello Kitty and a crepe[5] store and is located off Texas Highway 75.[6]

The chain's third location opened in Duluth, a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia in 2016 north of Interstate 85 and includes a food court with several traditional Chinese dishes including including craft-your-own Sichuan-style dry hot pots, Cantonese barbecue, and Shaanxi-style cuisine.[7]

In 2018, a fourth location was opened in Sugar Land, a suburb of Houston. The store was formerly used by GattiTown, where business was low against nearby Main Event Entertainment. Edward Tsao Architects, Inc., a Chinese-American architecture company, transformed the dated retail park with a modern look. The Sugar Land store is in the same retail park as 99 Ranch Market, offering competition to the Taiwanese-American supermarket giant.[8]

That same year, Jusgo opened a fifth location in Plano in the Park Pavilion Center, north of President George Bush Turnpike. It replaced the Elliot's Hardware store, which moved across the street as it was surrounded by ethnic restaurants, primarily Chinese.[9]

Jusgo caters to the Chinese Americans in Dallas,[10] Houston,[11] and Atlanta.
