ABOUT US

About four decades have passed since Japan’s first convenience store opened.
The ongoing diversification of customer needs through the years has made today’s convenience store much more than a convenient place to shop. As a facility whose lights stay on 24 hours a day, and which serves as a reliable cornerstone of community infrastructure in emergencies and times of disaster, the convenience store has emerged as an “essential part of people’s daily lives.” The role it is expected to play has expanded to unprecedented significance.
Always carefully monitoring these social trends, and striving to realize its Corporate Philosophy of “Creating Happiness and Harmony in Our Communities,” Lawson has consistently been among the first to undertake various new ventures.
The business environment has been changing almost daily in recent years, as exemplified by the labor shortage due to the combination of a declining birthrate with an aging population, the structural reorganization of industry, and innovations in digital technologies. Determined to achieve sustainable growth while continuing to meet the needs of society, Lawson launched its 1,000-Day Action Plan in fiscal 2016. The Plan is designed to realize our Corporate Philosophy through creation of a Next-Generation LAWSON Convenience Store model that satisfies the needs customers encounter in every aspect of daily life.
Fiscal 2018 is the final year of the Plan. We are continuing to build on the firm foundation we have established over the years by reinforcing our product lineup, sales floor functions and newly opened store operations while upgrading all our stores’ productivity through introduction of next-generation systems.
Deployment of the latest technologies will contribute to maintaining LAWSON’s signature warm hospitality by reducing stress on both our stores and our customers.
We cannot achieve all this on our own. Full implementation of our 1,000-Day Action Plan will be accomplished through the combined efforts of everyone associated with the Lawson Group, including our franchise owners, store crews and suppliers, such as our boxed meal makers and delivery centers, as well as our parent company, Mitsubishi Corporation.
All Lawson personnel are without exception warmhearted members of the community who provide essential ongoing support for the daily lives of its residents. Going forward, we will continue our efforts to realize our Vision, “To be a leading company in execution,” and to increase our corporate value.
