C-Mart on Lincoln Street in Boston's Chinatown Has Apparently Closed for Good

It looks like an Asian market in the Chinatown neighborhood of Boston has closed its doors permanently.

According to a Twitter post from @FortPointer, C-Mart on Lincoln Street is shuttered and a source mentions that it "is not expected to re-open," with @JCCraves responding that it has indeed closed for good. An earlier tweet from @FortPointer last month had stated that the grocery store was locked up and with a sign posted out front, though a request for a translation of the sign was unsuccessful so it is not known exactly what the sign had said.

Another C-Mart on nearby Herald Street on the northern edge of the South End appears to remain in business; a third had once been in operation on Washington Street on the western edge of Chinatown, though that shop closed back in 2013. (Another location is still in operation in Quincy as well.)

The address for the now-closed location of C-Mart in Chinatown was 109 Lincoln Street, Boston, MA, 02111.
