Introduction, Recommendations and Barrier Free Functions
Yurindo deals with books and stationery, and this is its main Isezaki branch. It’s well-established, 110 years-old, and the whole six storey building on Isezaki Dori is Yurindo. They also have a variety of technical books. In particular, they have a great selection of books on Yokohama. The third and fourth floors are stationary sections.
They treat any customers with great care.
This happened when a lady friend of mine with a serious disability went there to buy a picture book. She had trouble enunciating words, and the store clerk couldn’t catch her well, so they spent quite some time using a writing board to communicate. The clerk took good care of her with a smile; for instance, she checked the stock, did the gift-wrapping, taking out money from her wallet, which was a bit of a surprise for the clerk, showing the receipt at an easy-to-see position, putting the book in her bag, and so on. She was impressed and happy that she found the store easy to pop in and they’re full of hospitality.
