KTA Super Stores: Beyond the Bottom Line

KTA Super Stores: Beyond the Bottom Line

These principles and values continue today from the founders as the basis of the development and growth of KTA’s business model and its relationships with its partners, customers, staff and each other.

Vaccination – A Lesson From the Past

It makes good sense for our kūpuna to get the vaccine as soon as possible. With everything we know about the history of vaccine development, there should be acceptance and cooperation from our kūpuna. The option of contracting the virus is less appealing than getting the shot (or series of shots). Talking to your loved ones now can help prepare them to accept the vaccine.

A Second Chance at Love

photo of jim and sharon nishimotoSharon Young and Jim Nishimoto first met in 1989. They were in their 40s, working together at a local planning and architectural firm. Sharon was a single mom with three children. Jim was happily married and the father of two children. Sharon was widowed at the young age of 33 after caring for her husband at home for over two years. Mike passed away in 1982, leaving her to raise her children alone while working fulltime — sometimes at multiple jobs.

Oh Those Medicare Commercials!

You’ve seen hundreds of those ads on TV telling you to call a toll-free number to hear all about the new Medicare Advantage benefits. These commercials insinuate that all the extras are free and some suggest you might even be able to get money back. These ads are misleading, at best. The reality is that it’s nearly impossible to find one plan anywhere in America that includes all the free benefits they list.

Rules for Adult Kids Returning Home

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the country, parents saw a wave of adult children move back home. 52 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds now live in a parent’s house. Some may have moved back simply due to safety during the virus response or because universities switched to e-learning. Others may have returned because of financial reasons. As parents, it’s important to help your children find their footing, but you also don’t want to put your own financial security at risk.
