Notice Regarding Closure of Matsumoto PARCO

February 27, 2023


1.      Background and reason of decision on operation closures

As a commercial facility in the Matsumoto City center, Matsumoto PARCO has been operating for 38 years earning the support from the people of the local area since August 1984.

Over that time, although the Company worked to strengthen sales capabilities, increase efficiency of operation methods, etc., which includes the floor area expansion in 1996, intense competition in the Matsumoto City center in recent times as well as new openings and renewals of competing stores in the suburbs are continuously progressing in the vicinity of Matsumoto City.

Currently the store is receiving the support of numerous local customers. However, in light of future changes in the retail environment surrounding the store and the investment burden that would be required going forward, among other factors, the Company has decided to close operations of the store two years from now, at the end of February 2025.
