K. K. Discount Retail Store is closed until further notice due to a building fire.

Posted by

Our retail store is currently closed due to a tragic fire that claimed the lives of two of our beloved neighbors in the building where our store is. Our store has encountered extensive damages. We will not know the full extend of the damage until next week when building inspection takes place. 

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us during this time. We haven't been able to respond yet since we are still processing what happened. We will keep everyone posted on this page. Please check this page for any updates. For now we expect the store to be closed for weeks if not months due to the extensive damage to the store interior. We are also expecting substantial loss to our inventory due to the massive water damage. Response may be delayed during time.

New Updates:
