NHK’s “Close-up Gendai +” reported that the number of convenience stores in Japan has swelled to 57,000, causing a slowdown in sales at each store. They are reportedly expanding their services in the face of fierce competition from online shopping services and expanded drugstores. The program said the keys to the survival of convenience stores are to target elderly customers, expand overseas, and open stores in underpopulated areas.
