Connect direct to Japan’s top retailers
Retail in Japan is incredibly strong—and very different from anywhere else in the world.
Your product will be online and on the shelves of some of the most high-traffic – and highest-grossing – stores in the world. We have direct connections to the country’s biggest retailers with over 2,500 retail stores throughout Japan.
Commerce happens during commute
Electronics stores are located around major train stations, and passengers are accustomed to visit during their commutes home.
Customers want to know more
The average age in Japan right now is 47. This skew to the slightly older consumer means customers are more interested purchasing in person, and devote a significant amount of time to learning about products in depth.
Electronics retailers create very rich shopping environments. Staff are very well educated and demo systems, videos on the shelf, comparison charts, and sell sheets are available to help customers choose. What’s more, customers frequently purchase accompanying literature from the substantial book sections present in most stores.
Sourcenext manages it all
And by all, we really do mean everything: product localization, product design, marketing and merchandising, inventory build, warehousing and distribution, implementation of Point of Sale Activation (POSA) technology for retailers to carry higher value products, and local customer and technical support. As our founder Nori says, “The only reason our clients need to visit Japan is for the great sake and sushi.”.
