In 1926, Mr. and Mrs. Takao Ozawa Takeya opened the original Kaimuki Dry Goods Store. At that time, Mr. Takeya was working as a dry goods salesman for Theo H. Davies, and Mrs. Takeya managed the store. She also did dressmaking for special customers. It was a typical country store, which stocked everything imaginable including candy, shoes, men's collars, toys, Easter baskets and jewelry as well as shelves of cotton and and silk fabrics.

About a year before World War II, Mr. and Mrs. Takeya decided to retire. They formed a corporation and turned the store over to their children -- George, Dorothy, Edith, Katherine, and Eleanor. George was later killed in action on October 21, 1943.

Dorothy successfully managed the store until April, 1972, when she retired. In 1994, she passed away. In 1966, Kaimuki Dry Goods, Ltd. was remodeled and began specializing in patterns, notions, and fabrics. Presently, Edith Takeya is Chairman of the Board, daughter Dee Dee Miyashiro is President, Pam Metzger is Assistant Manager and Kenneth Takeya is Bookkeeper.

And remember, "'You'll find it at Kaimuki Dry Goods!"



Pam Metzger, Assistant Manager; Dee Dee Miyashiro, president; Edith Takeya, Chairman
