鴻源辦館 hung yuan store

2013.9.29 文咸東街32號地下 | 32 bonham strand

掌衛文咸東街街角四十年的鴻源辦館要撤了。幸而還有退身之地,到孖沙街去,二零一三年十月一日。

一家一家的老店,關的關,遷的遷,我們的香港,已經面目模糊。

strategic location, at the corner of bonham strand crosses hillier street, hung yuan has been safeguarding this focal points of the old streeets of sheung wan for 40 years. finally, it is moving; on oct 1. notices are hanging around the stall, when i passed by the stall this afternoon.

old shops die or move. where has my hong kong gone?

原來的故事:《舊時話:辦館求存 》蘋果日報副刊

  • 1972年在上環文咸東街與禧利街交界開業
  • 辦館,可算最早的超級市場,開埠初期由洋人經營,多在中上環一帶開舖,主要售賣洋貨如煙酒及罐頭,顧客多以外國家庭和往來香港的遠洋郵輪公幹人士為主,可以記賬取貨,一個月結算一次。漸漸地,華人開始在屋村參與經營,兼賣日常用品和玩具,甚或賣生果。辦館與士多和雜貨店最不同之處,一是前者有大量洋酒香煙發售,二是兼做批發,而士多雜貨只做零售,甚至要向辦館取貨,貨物檔次也較低廉些。
  • 五年前(2004年),鴻源放棄以往兼賣雜貨的格局,決定只買香煙及酒,另一半出租給生果店。

  1. 我曾經去過鴻源辦館。但由於店鋪搬遷,我找不到這家店。有人告訴我這家店搬到了上環68蘇杭街,必勝客對面。這家店目前主要集中在賣酒(威士忌)和煙草,是一家新潮的酒店。
    I used to visit Hung Yuen Provisions, but since the store moved, I was a bit lost finding the store. Someone told me the store moved to 68 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan. It is just across Pizza Hut. The shop is now mainly concentrate on selling wines (whiskies) and tobaccos, a nicely built wine shop.

    1. 是的,向皇后大道方向內移,慶幸小店生意繼續。但唏噓從前氣派不再。
      yes it has moved but still around the neighbourhood. if you walk from the original location towards queen’s road direction, it is not hard to find. glad that the business goes on. just a little sad about the scale down and miss the beautiful corner without an old business and the big and pretty shop name hanging there.
