Congratulations CONGRATULATIONS TO KTA SUPER STORES ON A CENTURY OF HARD WORK & DEDICATION TO MAKING HAWAI‘I MORE SPECIAL EVERY DAY! June 19, 2016 1916 KTA 2016 9 Lon Taniguchi and Toby Taniguchi show off years of KTA memorabilia at the flagship KTA store in Hilo. Editor’s note We’re pleased to bring you this special section in honor of KTA Super Stores, which turned 100 this year. Few businesses or institutions on the island are as beloved as KTA. Known for its stellar customer service and the unwavering generosity of the Taniguchi family, KTA has become synonymous with the right way to do business. When we began planning this section — one of the largest we’ve ever produced — we asked a simple question: How can we capture the essence of KTA? The answer can be found on virtually every page: family. KTA’s story is a story about family — and not just the Taniguchi family, but the whole island community. We chose to tell that story using photographs and other memorabilia directly from KTA’s family archives. It’s a treasure trove of images that reveals so much about the community’s last 100 years. We hope you’ll enjoy perusing this material as much as we did. Happy Birthday, KTA.
