Galleria Supermarket (the korean grocery) @ Yonge and Steeles, is now open

the new location opened today at noon. It's located at the north WEST corner of yonge and steeles.

it seems to have renamed itself as;

Galleria Market Place.
7040 yonge st. Thornhill ON L4J 1V7
905 882 0040

A few notable differences from their previous location.
It is now open 24 hours.
it's much smaller than before.
And no food court. correction. looks like 4 restaurants are yet to move in. 1 korean, 1 japanese, 1 chinese, and 1 k-fast food(tukbokki, hotuk)
it isn't quite 'complete' yet. some minor construction is still going on, and not all stores have moved in.

And mark my words people. We're going to see a lot of car accidents, just north of the yonge and steeles intersection. The entrance into the store is quite horrid. galleria will create a lot of congestion there... if i were you, i'd go in through the steeles entrance, not yonge.

well, they didn't 'make' it smaller. the building was already there. it used to be chapters/indigo.
they couldn't make it bigger, unless they actually did some major construction and make additions over the parking lot.

i think it's a seoul thing.
people who say NY never sleeps haven't seen seoul.
so many places open 24 hours there.
it's probably because people work long hours, and even now often on saturdays, so you can only party and do stuff late at night.
it's not uncommon for people to drink and party during the weekday until 3-4 in the morning, and catch a 3 hour sleep and go back to work the next day.

nope.
that doesn't mean they won't make an appearance later, as the market isn't entirely finished. that stall didn't exist when galleria first launched in the original location as well.

sure thanks. i hope their quality will be maintained

quality seems just as before, but unfortunately the prices as well.
i do find the galleria and h-mart to be so expensive.
i actually don't buy much from these places.

Thank you Seoul. I like the 24 hr convenience store on my block, although I've only visited during the day lol

Where is heck is the entrance along Steeles? I ended up going through the entrance to Moores, and drove along what looked to be an alleyway with some monstrously steep speedbumps. Is there a proper entrance for the store other than the Yonge side?

if you keep going up the entrance way to the right side of Moores, you'll see the galleria to the right hand side.

They also opened another location on York Mills between Leslie and Don Mills. I don't have the exact address but it is on the side street west to the plaza with the Kelsey's.

It is fairly spacious, but I went on the night of Christmas Day so the food court and such obviously weren't open. Its a good alternative if you're in the area or more south.
