AAPI Month Shout-Outs: People, Yelp, Brit+Co
Thanks so much to People, Yelp, and Brit+Co for including Pearl River Mart in their roundups of AAPI-owned businesses to support.
"Blessedly, this iconic Chinese-American emporium in New York City has an online storefront. Pearl River Mart has been a stalwart in the heart of New York's Chinatown for four decades, and its collection of kitchenware and home decor always makes me dream of home in Taiwan. I use my blue porcelain bowl from Pearl River Mart every night for dinner." —Nina Huang, commerce writer, lifestyle
From Yelp (via Apartment Therapy):
Pearl River Mart has been thriving in New York City for more than 50 years. Owned by Ming Yi and Ching Yeh Chen, the business sells everything from cookware to lighting.
This duo [Mr. and Mrs. Chen] founded Pearl River Mart in 1971 as the world's first Chinese American department store. People of all backgrounds can learn about Asian history and culture beyond NYC through their online site. They're celebrating AAPI History Month with a Sunset Celebration at Chelsea Market on May 14th!
