A crowdfunding campaign has kicked off to rescue Nak's Oriental Market in Menlo Park. The market, which has been open for nearly 47 years, carries a combination of Asian and Dutch products, in addition to produce and sushi-grade fish.
Rent hikes and competition from big grocery stores have made operations difficult for the small business at 1151 Chestnut St. even before owner Sam Kurose turned the business over to his son, Ken, in 2013.
The son is now facing the possibility of shutting Nak's down and shifting to online sales and home delivery, according to the IndieGoGo crowdfunding site.
