Squirrel Hill's Panda Supermarket to move to bigger location on Forbes Ave.

Panda Supermarket, an Asian grocery store in Squirrel Hill, is planning to move to a bigger location on Forbes Ave. later this year, according to property records and building permits. It purchased the Squirrel Hill Professional Suites building at 5818 Forbes Ave. in August 2019 and will open a multi-story grocery there by the end of 2020. It will occupy the ground floor and basement, and will continue to lease out the second floor to other busineses. The move was originally scheduled for July but has been delayed due to COVID-19.

Panda opened in 2017 and is currently located on the ground floor beneath KIIN Lao & Thai Eatery in what was formerly a Levin Mattress store.
