Convenience-discount giant to build 1st store in Okinawa

Date Posted: 2012-01-05

One of Japan’s leading discount retail warehouse companies is preparing to open its first outlet in Okinawa.

Don Quijote, which operates 230 stores across Japan, has purchased land in Ginowan City for the store. The land parcel was previously owned by JA Okinawa. Don Quijote specializes in a wide variety of consumer electrical appliances, fashion and sports goods, time pieces and foods. The 10,000 square-meter lot is part of a JA land parcel called “Eden Ginowan” in the Oyama district.

Don Quijote Group’s core company includes a combination of retail facilities, including Nagasaki-ya, home center ‘Doit’ and Japan Commercial Facility, a tenant leasing unit. Don Quixote Group has more than 2,500 employees, and reaches beyond Japan with three stores in Hawaii. The company’s stores mostly are open until 11 p.m., but a few are open round-the-clock, and all are open 365 days a year.

The company’s “customer priority policy” puts about 45,000 different items for sale in each store, making it easy for customers to find just what they want to purchase. The new Okinawa store is expected to open within a year.

JA Okinawa decided to sell the Eden Ginowan composite facility several years ago. It was originally built in 1997 and included JA Nature Spring Aroma onsen and a JA Green Pal gardening shop that covered much of the 24,000-square-meter site.
