Social media executive from Longdan Oliver Huynh said: “I’m super excited about opening in Crawley. From the beginning, our team has worked very hard to ensure the best shopping experience for customers. I feel like Longdan brings a different shopping experience within Crawley as we are the first Asian supermarket and plant-based store inside Crawley.

“Customers can expect a whole, wide range of things from the store. From plant-based food to Asian food. Recently, our business has transitioned to the ‘home of Asia’, so expect food from the likes of Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka as well.

Our Plant-based range is targeting the plant community and especially during this time when people are concerned about their health. A plant-based store brings a different side to Crawley. We also do kitchenware and cosmetics, which will attract more customers.”
