In the early 70’s I visited Kaohsiung. I have been looking for a Kaohsiung contact to see if stores that I purchased items are still in business. can you

Ok, let me ask…what stores? What items purchased? My guess is, they may not still be around, but who knows…


Compared to how fast things change in the west, Taiwan moves so fast that time in Taiwan moves like dog years. 1 year in Taiwan equals 7 years back home. So if this store was around in the early 1970s, that’s about 30 years.

30 x 7 = 210 years

There aren’t many businesses or stores still in the same place back home after 2 centuries. So it’s very, very, very unlikely this place in Kaohsiung is still around, either.
