In an effort to support businesses whose sales have declined due to the new coronavirus, a sales meeting is being held in Akita City to collect souvenirs and other items at a low price.
Sales meetings were organized by akita city, Oga city, Katagami city, and local councils to support businesses with a large number of inventory due to the decrease in sales due to the decrease in tourists and other products.
Twelve businesses set up booths at parks in Akita City, of which wholesalers in the city sold about 30 items, including confectionery that had a near-expiration date, at half the price.
In addition, there were also special ties from Akita, such as traditional japanese food made of radish”Iburi-goko” and Inaba udon, and visitors were buying their favorite items while cooperating in preventing infection, such as checking at the entrance and wearing masks.
A man in his 60s in Akita city said, “I bought buckwheat noodles and sweets. I hope i can help the local people even a little bit.”
The man of the wholesaler who opened the store said, “There are a lot of stocks that the expiration date is near, and it is thankful because it was worried. I hope it will be an opportunity for people to learn about local products again through the sales meeting.”
This sales meeting will also be held on the 24th, 30th and 31st of this month.
