KOREAN GROCERS PREFER SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS

A Cornell University study disputes a popular view that Korean green grocers in New York City prefer to operate in high-risk neighborhoods.

The study of 90 Korean grocery store owners in Manhattan shows that most Koreans would prefer to operate in safe neighborhoods and are attracted to high-crime areas only when they cannot afford to purchase a shop in a better location.

Most Korean grocers in New York never operated a grocery store in Korea. But they became grocers because their knowledge of English was minimal.

Eighty-two percent of Korean grocery stores are open seven days a week.
