To Our Loyal Customer,
Our parents, Toshio and Yoshiko Yamamoto, immigrated from Japan to work at the Waipahu Sugar Plantation. In 1947, they opened what was then a small radio repair and electronics shop on Depot Road. Since then, we have worked each day to continue our parents' legacy and provide the friendly, local customer service that is so special in Hawaii.
This February 2024, we will retire with smiles on our faces for having had the amazing opportunity to serve you. We invite you to join us for the last time at our big Retirement Sale happening now through the end of February. For appliance and warranty service after February, our quality manufacturers will continue to support you.
The Yamamoto family is proud to have been a part of your lives for the past 76 years, providing quality furniture and appliances to multiple generations at the best prices in town. We are so grateful for your years of support. Thank you so very much.
With Much Gratitude,
Marge (Yamamoto) Funasaki
Eunice (Yamamoto) Soeda
Mid-Town Radio Disco Mart opened in 1947 and has been an important community partner in Waipahu for more than 70 years. Founders Toshio and Yoshiko Yamamoto made their dream of running a "mom and pop" shop a reality through hard work, determination and dedication.Founders of Mid-Town Radio Disco Mart, Toshio & Yoshiko Yamamoto (1971)
Upon first arriving on Oahu from Japan, Toshio worked in the Waipahu sugar cane fields for the Oahu Sugar Company, and soon after began taking night classes in electronics to learn how to repair radios.
In the early years, Toshio worked the night shift at the Sugar Company Power Plant, and spent the days working together with Yoshiko at Mid-Town Radio. The store first operated as a radio repair and retail shop, and later expanded offerings to include televisions and appliances.
In 1972, Toshio and Yoshiko added to their store offerings yet again, and began selling furniture with the opening of Disco Mart. Daughters Marge and Eunice later joined the family business and continue to run it to this day.Yoshiko Yamamoto and daughters, Marjory Funasaki & Eunice Soeda
