New Store Opens in Hitachi no Ushiku
A new store opened up next to Hitachi no Ushiku station (on the Joban Line) today. It is called “Seiyu” and it is open 24 hours a day. It includes a large-scale grocery store that sells food, clothing, and certain household goods. On the second floor of the building, there is a bookstore, a Mujirushi (Muji) store, a pet good store, and some other shops.
I haven’t been there myself yet, so I can’t give you any more details, but if you are the kind of person who likes to shop around for discounts and you are not afraid of crowds, you might want to drop by on the weekend for some Grand Opening Sales. They have some special “bait” items, like laptop computers on sale for about 50,000 yen on Saturday from 9am. Of course, they only have a limited number of these computers (I believe about 16 in total), so if you really want one, you will have to line up rather early.
