80-year-old's lifetime dedication to grocery store

文字-A A +A

81-year-old Guan Da-xing (官大興) traveled north from Changhua to Taipei alone at seventeen years of age. After doing various temporary jobs and hard manual labor, he decided to start his own business. At the time, he was penniless, and his parents kindly gave him NT$30,000 as capital to open a grocery store. He never imagined that half a century later, his humble little store would still be open.

The many small grocery stores that have witnessed eras come and go, from the demolition of the railroad and the construction of roads to the advent of mass rapid transit (MRT), not only bear testimony to the changing times but also record the rise and fall of the grocery store industry in Taiwan. Now in business for nearly sixty years, Guan Da-xing has been through many crises, from being swindled for money to seeing his family break apart, etc., all of which he says, just like his grocery store, has allowed him to experience every season of life, the good times as well as the bad.

台灣最美風景 80歲爺爺守護一生的雜貨店

八十一歲的官大興,十七歲就獨自從彰化北上到台北打拼,做過各種臨時工、苦工,最後決定自己創業開店,當時的他還身無分文,拿著父母所提供的三萬元資金,就此開啟了他的雜貨店人生,也沒想過這店一開就是半個世紀。

小小的店面卻走過不同的年代,從周遭拆遷鐵路、建設道路,一直到捷運開通,不僅見證世代改變,更紀錄雜貨店產業的興衰。開店將近六十年,官大興經歷多次危機,像是曾經被人倒會、遇到分家問題等,這一切像是雜貨店一樣,給他又酸又甜的滋味。
