Ribbon cutting ceremony to mark Wausau’s newest shopping destination  
WAUSAU, WI (May 3, 2016) – Wausau World Market invites you to attend its free formal grand opening celebration on Saturday, May 7. A ribbon cutting ceremony and short program begin at 12 p.m.  
Wausau World Market has been the dream of long-time Wausau residents Chungsou and Mai Her. The onetime war refugees settled in central Wisconsin in the early 1980s and fell in love with the community.

“I’ve lived and worked on the west side of Wausau for most of the last 30 years, and I couldn’t imagine being apart of any other neighborhood,” said Chungsou Her. “In a few short months, we’ve turned this area around into a vibrant, spacious and safe shopping center, open to all.”  
Vibrancy is exactly what is needed on the west side, according to city leaders. “The creation of the Wausau World Market has brought a new vitality to the City’s near west side, opening multicultural commerce to the residences of the entire City,” says Romey Wagner, Wausau City Alderman. “Whether driving a car, riding a city bus or biking or walking with a baby in a stroller this market is accessible to all and is transforming the neighborhood for a brighter future.”  
Brighter futures are being paved with the opportunities Wausau World Market offers its growing list of vendors. Currently, a couple dozen local families run shops inside selling everything from handmade clothing to professional portrait sessions and authentic Southeast Asian cuisine.   
“The Wausau World Market is a significant contribution to the Wausau community, not only providing local economic development impact but serving as a business incubator for business start-ups and up-and-coming entrepreneurs,” adds May yer Thao, director of Hmong Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce.
