Kam Man in Boston's South Bay Has Closed; Status Unknown

It looks like an Asian supermarket just south of downtown Boston has closed, and it is not known whether it will be reopening.

A veteran Chowhound poster mentions that Kam Man at the South Bay shopping center is apparently shuttered, with the building being fenced off. A phone call placed to their store in Quincy seems to confirm this, with the person simply saying that it is "closed." There is chatter that a Dollar Tree could be moving into the space, possibly even sharing the building with a smaller Kam Man, though nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Kam Man, which first started out in 1972, has stores in New York City and New Jersey, as well as in Quincy.

The address for Kam Man in South Bay is 101 Allstate Road, Dorchester, MA, 02125.

Thanks to food/drinks writer MC Slim JB for bringing this to our attention.
