With over 400 employees Uwajimaya is one of the largest Asian grocery retailers in the Pacific Northwest. Since the beginning, Uwajimaya has evolved beyond providing basic grocery staples and become known as a tourist and destination store. Uwajimaya believes good customer service is paramount. Its reputation is built on being known as the information specialist on all things Asian and part of its mission is to educate the customer on all aspects of Asian cultures. Uwajimaya's pre-eminence among Asian stores comes from its use of modern technology, its emphasis on cleanliness, and its adherence to its business philosophy.
Uwajimaya not only serves the customer, but also the community at large by promoting Asian cultures, sponsoring cultural events and shows, distributing educational and informational material, supporting many local programs and contributing to numerous organizations. The Seattle Uwajimaya store serves as an important focal point of Seattle Chinatown/International District and the region's diverse Asian community, the fastest growing segment of the area's population. Each week, groups of students from local schools visit Uwajimaya to observe, experience, and learn about the various Asian cultures that Uwajimaya promotes.
Uwajimaya continues to explore opportunities to selectively open new retail locations. Its goal is to be the premier provider of Asian groceries to the ever growing popularity and demand for quality Asian groceries and gifts.
