Old department store in Yamagata up for foreclosure

The Onuma Department Store in Yamagata City is up for foreclosure later this month, with a minimum bid set at 186,768,000 Yen (approx. US$1.8 million). Yamagata District Court will accept sealed-bids from November 24 to December 1, with bids to be opened on December 3.  The department store closed its doors in January 2020 after filing for bankruptcy, making Yamagata City the only prefectural capital in Japan to be without a department store.
