Shinsegae Department Store Chain is the latest Japanese retailer to enter the era of big data.
According to new research, the company has been able to transform its retail strategy to adapt to changing shopping patterns and consumer habits.
Shinsega has opened several department stores in Japan over the past year, including department stores like the Shinseka department store chain in Osaka, and a new chain of department stores named Shinsegaya department store in Tokyo.
Shasegaya stores are currently offering items for sale in both online and brick-and-mortar stores, but they are expected to be expanded to other major shopping malls soon.
The company has also created a new mobile app called Shinsego to help customers find products.
Shizuoka-based Shinseaga said it opened a total of 20 Shinsegas this year, but its biggest store, the Shasega department store on the Chiba prefecture’s Yamanote prefecture, is only the fourth Shinsegate store in Japan.
Shsega said the stores are a natural fit for the company’s future.
“We have a strong presence in the Japanese market and have grown in the past decade, so we know how to expand our reach in Japan,” said Shizuaga Shiba, the chief executive officer of Shizuya Shinseegaya, the group that oversees Shinsegs operations in Japan and Taiwan.
Shosegaya has opened two stores in Tokyo, including the Shisego department store and the Shosega department stores at Ikebukuro and Saitama in the capital, and the company said it plans to open another 10 Shosegs by the end of the year.
Shisegaya is also expanding its presence in Japan, opening stores in Kobe, Nagoya and Kyoto in 2017.
The group also has two Shisegs in China, the second in Shanghai and the third in Shenzhen.
Shousegaya, which started out in the 1960s, has expanded into stores in the U.S. and Europe.
In 2016, it opened the first Shisega department shop in the United States.
Shibe, the biggest department store operator in Japan is also launching its own online shopping app in 2018.
It said it was also expanding Shibe’s retail presence in China to 50 stores, including more than two dozen in Shanghai.
Shidega said it expects to open more Shosegas in the future.
The Shidegaya group also said it will soon start accepting bitcoin payments, as the Shousega group has also partnered with Coinapult to accept bitcoin.
The companies said they plan to make their payments available to all customers in the next two months.
Shishiga Shishigas group, which includes Shinsegega and Shibe and Shisegas chains, is the largest group of department store operators in Japan with a combined workforce of about 3.6 million.
It also has about 5.7 million employees.
The largest department store chains are also among the world’s largest retailers, with Walmart holding the title of the world leader with more than 5 million employees in the last decade.
