Video: And the award for the messiest shop in Thailand goes to.....

Sanook reported that a shop in northern Thailand that has been called the messiest and most disorganized store in Thailand is holding onto its title. 

 

The shop in question is the "Manuphanit" store near the Surasi five way intersection in downtown Phitsanuloke. 

 

A couple of years ago it gained the accolade and Sanook went back to see if things had improved. 

 

They hadn't. 

 

Owner of the odds and ends store Aree Kengphanit, 56, was still the only one who could tell you where something was. 

 

But not to worry - locals love the store that has been in operation for ten years.

I have seen a few houses here that could compete, some never throw anything away. All our old rubbish HAS to be given to relatives who stack it up and shove it in cupboards, old tv's stereos, broken appliances, all useless.

Am I allowed to use the quote "flies are often attracted to s**t" ?

..and next week on the 'Thai Hoarders Show..'

 

There is a shop much much worse than this in Bangkok east side. Over several years I gradually started to see every inch of the floor space in front of the counter become covered in literally a foot deep of inventory that is walked over because there was absolutely no where else to put anything else. I'm guessing its already 2 foot deep by now.

And how do they even remember what the price is? When they die, it will still look the same.

When we moved the whole family to CM we bought a pretty nice 5 bed house full kitchen nice living room etc. 

 

We have a relative who runs a big business selling ready made mens' and womens' traditional Thai clothes, she lives in Sukothai and has a big shop at her house and she and hubby alternate at the Chiang Rai shop (also quite big).

 

We moved into our new house in CM, son and his wife very happy to have a real house, a real kitchen and living room, all nicely furnished, proper curtains etc. etc.

 

Soon we all came home and there's four big pick ups outside the house, maybe 60 big cardboard boxes of clothes were on the verandah, and 2 more pick ups arrive over laden with big boxes. Becomes apparent the relative had decided our house would be a nice central storage point between Sukothai and Chiang Rai. 

 

They didn't ask about it in advance, son and his wife said no, not even one box, some relatives have never forgiven them, they see houses as storage facilities, nothing more.
