“Our family has been very fortunate and blessed to be in business all these years. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the best customers around,” said the owner in a letter posted on the door of the shop.

While Ishiharaya will permanently close on Nov. 13, their products will be sold at selected retailers until the end of the year.

Customers looking for their special treats will be able to find them at Don Quijote, Marukai Wholesale Mart, Kona Chip and at a few other locations.
