    Fujiya Yaizu-Sanchome Shop: Fujiya-Supermarket Chains Based in Yaizu

    by taigaa001 Written Nov 2, 2014

    Fujiya is one of the local supermarket chains in Shizuoka area based in Yaizu. Supermarket is a nice place to buy foods in general, utensils, tissue papers and they deal with almost all daily necessities. I occasionally use such supermarket chains to buy beverages. Oftentimes these stores launch an extensive sales in soft drinks and the same brand of soft drink can be a lot cheaper than when you buy in convenience stores. Other than price factors the reasons some locals use particular chains vary. Yaizu Sanchome shop is located between Yaizu Shrine and Bunka Center/Kiyomita Park and a nice place to buy things you need when you travel around there.
