Seiyu also became a subsidiary of "Walmart (Walmart)" in Japan. Although we withdrew "Carrefour" and "Tesco (Tesco)", we also have a warehouse type "Costco" (membership system) and a business supermarket "Metro" A supermarket has advanced. This is the same for overseas, companies in various countries collided with each other all over the world. The German hypermarket "Real", which entered Russia, sold its business to a French affiliate "Auchan (Ocean)". Even in Africa where future development can be expected, several companies have already solidified the foundation.

"Carrefour" is a company representing France. In Europe, mainly in Latin countries. I went into Japan in 2000 by funny things, but withdrew in just 4 years.

Aeon of Japan's leading general retailer acquires Carlosle and Tesco's store which acquired acquisition of Mycal and Daiei of the same business which had fallen into management difficulties and failed to advance to Japan, and it is a very active movement with the industry's top I'm running a seat. In recent years, I opened a shopping center all over the country in the form of an ion mall on the outskirts of the city and changed the landscape in Japan. This momentum is similar to overseas, we do not know that we will purchase a Carrefour store to withdraw from Malaysia, or build a shopping center in Vietnam and Cambodia too.

Aeon acquired Carrefour's Malaysian business for 15.1 billion yen, ranked second in Japan (November 1, 2012) - Reuters

[Paris / Tokyo 31, Reuters) French retail giant Carrefour (CARR.PA: stock price, company information, report) revealed that Malaysia business was sold to AEON (8267.T: stock price, news, report) did. Aeon will acquire all shares at 147 million euros (about 15.1 billion yen).

Aeon opened a large shopping center (SC) "Aeon Mall Tang Fu Celadon" which will be the country's first shop on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam. We aim to expand our share of Japanese goods and Japanese style services in the country with national character as a senior citizen.

Accelerate opening store in ASEAN region - AEON Mall Co., Ltd.

On December 10, 2012, we aim to open business in 2014 by launching a groundbreaking ceremony for "Aeon Mall Phnom Penh", the largest and first mall in the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Europe:Three countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark)
North / Central America:Three countries (USA, Canada, Mexico)

Japan's Seven - Eleven is expanding convenience stores all over the world, and it is the world 's largest store as a chain store. A convenience store that is indispensable for living in Japan is a weapon with mobility and convenience. There is no need to walk around like a supermarket. I bought drinks in the USA and Mexico and was taking a break. You can also see the number of stores in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Ito-Yokado of group companies also operates stores in China, but overseas deployment is centered on convenience stores.

By the way, "Seven - Eleven" "Lawson" "Family Mart" and the top three overseas deployment in Japan are like this.

South America:One country (Brazil)
Africa:One country (Mauritius)
Oceania: Two countries (Australia, New Zealand)

We also actively promoted overseas expansion of "Daiso" at 100 yen shop. Chinese people sell their own goods all over the world, but quality is not accompanied. Shopping hell that it is higher than that on Japan. I also see imported grocery stores dealing with Chinese products in Chile, but there are not many items available for 100 yen. That is why I believe that 100 yen shops in Japan have sufficient business opportunities abroad. In the United States, "Dollar General", "Family Dollar", "Dollar Tree" and 1 $ shop were convenient, but I felt that quality is insufficient from the sense of Japan.

Daiso products that occasionally appear at Chinese general shop

◆ Consideration
Future comprehensive retail of the world
· Warehouse = Costco (USA)
· Hyper Market = Real (Germany), Auchan (France)
· Supermarket = Walmart (USA), Tesco (UK)
· Discount store = Lidl (Germany), Aldi (Germany), Netto (Denmark), Leader Price (France)
· Convenience store = Seven - Eleven (Japan), Lawson (Japan), FamilyMart (Japan), Circle K (Canada)
The competition will accelerate with five store styles. Even now, the American "Walmart" has warehouses, hypermarkets and supermarkets, France's Casino is a discount store, and supermarkets and one company are handling multiple store styles.

Supermarket in Poland

Peru's hypermarket

The development of supermarkets was only expanding as "shops → local companies → regional companies → national companies → global enterprises", but in the world's largest American market the Japanese convenience store "Seven - Eleven" opened 8177 stores , "German discount store" Aldi "Approximately 1300 storesIt is very fun with the composition that challenges to the huge store-type "Walmart".

By joining the EU, Croatian supermarkets are sure to get involved in fierce competition.

Companies in the major countries such as the United States, Japan, Germany, France are conspicuous, but Mexico's convenience store "OXXO"To South America Colombia, Chilean supermarket"TOTTUS"Is entering Peru, the world's retail business is interesting.

"Mercator" in Slovenia has advanced to Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, which were the same countries in the former Yugoslavia. There are stores in Albania, too.

It is saturated already in Japan, but I do not know that overseas development will stay. In Southeast Asia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar who turned into an open route attract attention. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and South Asia with a huge population are also attractive. We can not keep an eye on Africa where the economic zone is tied from southern South Africa to eastern Kenya.

Withdrawing to enter the market, selling to acquisitions and the global retail industry seems to show a hot movement in 2014 as well.
