We hope this message finds all of our friends and patrons safe and well.

During this difficult time, as the world marshals its efforts to control the outbreak of the Corona virus, we must all do our part in contributing to the fight. 

Nakagamas considers itself to be an essential service and we are committed to remain open to avoid disruption to your food supply needs. We are announcing that effective, March 30, we will be changing our hours form 11am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. We remain closed on Sundays.

We are still suspending all sushi making for in store sales until further notice.

Delivery of product to our store, is still following regular schedule but due to higher volume demand for some items there are occasionally and temporary sell outs. There is NO SHORTAGE of food supply and our suppliers are still able to fill our orders. We must admit however, there have been some issues with distribution and truck service for high demand items.

The store is constantly being sanitized in high touch areas and all clerks are following proper distance and personal guidelines that the government and health services recommend to keep us all safe. Social distancing protocols are being encourage in store.

Phone in orders can be taken and we are happy to serve you in store for simple pickup or curb side service. We would appreciate all payments be debit or credit card with tap being preferred. If cash is the only option, we are still prepared to accept this method of payment.

We appreciate and are grateful for you understanding and patience at this time and together we will keep our community strong and resilient.

Stay Safe,
Ken & Kendra
