J. Front Retailing Co., Ltd. Company Profile

J. Front Retailing fronts the retail operations of leading Japanese department stores The Daimaru and Matsuzakaya Holdings. The holding company was created by the merger of the two ailing rivals in 2007. The Daimaru, founded as a drapery shop in 1717, operates about 13 upscale shops in western Japan. Matsuzakaya, founded in 1611 as a kimono retailer, runs half a dozen department stores in central Japan, including its flagship location in Nagoya. The company's other activities include credit services, direct marketing, furniture making, restaurants, and wholesale textiles. J. Front sold its supermarket business in 2013. With Japan's department store sector stuck in a rut, J. Front is trying to diversify.
