Javad Noori opened Sahara Mart in August of 1986, at the intersection of two alleys near Third and Grant. He stocked his small store with foods from around the world, based on requests from his international student customers.
The selection of multi-cultural foods continues to expand, as does the attention to customer requests. This has proven a successful approach, and the little store in the alley has grown to two very big ones, one on each side of Bloomington.
