Island Pacific's Highly Anticipated Lake Forest, California Opening & Hiring Event

WALNUT, Calif., June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The highly anticipated opening of the 18th Island Pacific location has community members in the South Orange County neighborhood already buzzing with excitement. These areas are home to a burgeoning Filipino population looking not only for fresh seafood and grocery items that Island Pacific takes pride in being able to offer at very reasonable prices, but also their desire in America to be celebrated and acknowledged, particularly in the wake of all the Asian hate proliferating. Island Pacific collaborated with Filipino cultural artist Kristian Kabuay and muralist Bodeck Luna to bring in details in the new store's aesthetic that represents and highlights Filipino culture.

Cultural Bearer  Kristian Kabuay's Baybayin Translation

            Baybayin is the Philippine text prior to precolonial Spanish rule. Kabuay shares that having our Baybayin script is a step forward in normalizing our pre-Philippine culture in our everyday lives. "Island Pacific is an example of culture being served through the stomach. It's natural to showcase our writing, textiles, and stories along with our food." In the signages on the walls, baybayin is strategically on top of its Tagalog translations of the available items sold at the store.

                Muralist and Local Long Beach Artist Bodeck Luna's Ode to the Philippine Archipelago

             Bodeck Luna shares that it's a very special opportunity working with Island Pacific since he's a suki (loyal customer) there. Island Pacific is his local Filipinx market that carries products he grew up finding in palengkes (wet markets) in Tondo Manila.. As an artist from the Philippines working with a FilAm brand, Luna gets a sense of pride and gratitude to have this platform to share his talents with the community. "The mural he has created for Island Pacific are not only representational but rather a celebration of who we are," he says.

Hiring on the Spot weekend event

             This coming July 1 and 2 from 9am to 4pm, Island Pacific invites everyone from all backgrounds to apply at the newest location at 22369 El Toro Rd, Lake Forest, CA 92630. Positions to be filled are for the following departments - Seafood/Produce/Meat/Grocery Associates & Manager, Cashiers, Philhouse Associates  and Utility crews.
