Our Group Strategy Machi-dukuri
Our "Machi-dukuri" Strategy allows us to respond to changes in the consumer environment as well as to the diversifying values and needs of consumers to provide customer satisfaction.
This strategy is comprised of various fundamental approaches to management and sales.
Two concepts form our "Machi-dukuri" Strategy.
The first concept is for Takashimaya to serve as the core of each city in which it is located and function as an anchor point which attracts people to the entire city as well as promote efforts including cooperation with local government and nearby commercial facilities.
The second concept is for Takashimaya to work towards the combination of department stores and specialty shops in order to improve product lineups, services, and shopping environments. By maximizing department store attractiveness, we will aim to provide our customers with a sense of excitement and enjoyment similar to that found when walking around town.
Takashimaya will promote the creation of its own unique commercial facilities by utilizing the commercial production strength of Toshin Development, a business which helps support this strategy.
- Tamagawa Takashimaya S.C.
- Tamagawa Takashimaya S.C. symbolizes our "Machi-dukuri" Strategy. It features a wide variety of product offerings through its great mix of department store sales floors and popular specialty stores. In addition, Takashimaya strives to provide the high-quality service expected of a department store throughout the shopping center as Toshin Development handles the shopping center's space and facility management needs.
Commercial facility management optimally suited for local environments in Japan and overseas leads to maximum results.
