Business Roundups: International grocery store opens in Atascocita

August 3, 2018

Owned and operated by Atascocita resident Sherene Bellinfantie, Bellin’s International Grocery offers Caribbean, Latin American, African and Asian foods for people to enjoy.

Located on 4451 FM 1960 E., the ethnic grocery store opened in July.

“One thing I love about Atascocita is the diversity. You’ll find people from all over the world living here,” Bellinfantie said. “One of the things we noticed is most of the things we want is not readily avaiable and we have to travel into Houston. We thought we would bring it closer those of us who live here and make things readily available.”
