I first came to Akita in 1985. I know, I’m so old! At that time, one of my favorite stores was パレドゥー. Do you remember? For a short time between ジャスコ秋田店 and FORUS, there was パレドゥー.
I have many good memories there. They had a SONY Plaza store where I could buy many American snacks and books before the internet or AMAZON.COM. I enjoyed many movies at Cinema Palais. I also remember saving up and trading in blue chip stamps at the store there.
Last Sunday my wife and I went for a final visit to our old dating grounds. I walked through the store from top to bottom and said good-bye to a part of Akita’s history.
I hope the store renewal open in October will be successful.
Good luck OPA!!!
I hope the young people in Akita will be able to make many good memories there!
