Integrated Report 2022

About the Izumi Group Philosophy

Aiming to be top in every community by providing "new value" and "new community building."

Since its establishment, the Izumi Group has strived to be the top store in the region and has promoted the development of stores that cater to customer convenience, comfort, and enjoyment. Considering each of our stores as one town, we offer a variety of products and services in various places, including our large "Youme Town" shopping centers ("Youme" is a play on words, meaning "You & Me" in English and "Dream" in Japanese). In the future, we hope to move beyond the concept of "stores" for a new kind of "community building." We will work to make our stores community hubs and centers of community revitalization.

store creation.

We will promote local employment opportunities by opening stores through a strategy of securing dominance. We believe that local economies will become enriched by revitalizing communities through local production for local consumption activities in cooperation with the government, shopping districts, and NPOs, by serving as a lifeline for communities in the event of disasters, and other ways.

In order to carefully meet the needs of customers, we have adopted a system that allows us to offer a lineup of high value-added products comparable to that of department stores, and to elaborate plans and operations for each store. We are also focusing on enhancing safety and security by making all of our stores accessible and installing AEDs.

We have organized a career plan that respects the independence of employees and an education system that meets their different levels and goals. It is an environment where employees can set their own future careers and take the next step. In addition, the Izumi Group has introduced a system where income is determined according to each employee's responsibilities and authority rather than their position. We are building a system that allows all of our employees to be active and thrive.

For Youme Town, the locations of directly-managed sales floors and tenants are mixed and arranged by industry sector. Besides jointly implementing sales promotions and improving in-store access, we also support tenants with their recruitment activities, and are working to ensure that the Izumi Group and tenants can coexist and have shared prosperity.

About the Izumi Group History

This shows our growth trajectory as

we have continued to dream big for more than half a century.

shopping centers as the core. Youme Town

lack of competition. The strategy of becoming the undoubted

top store in a region where large stores had a low market

share was expanded into one of opening stores not only in

Kyushu but in other parts of western Japan as well.

Izumi returns to its roots in Hiroshima

Izumi promoted the establishment of a model of stores for children, parents, and grandparents in anticipation of the declining birthrate and aging population. By leveraging the know-how cultivated in Kyushu, the aim was to improve quality in all aspects, such as facilities, services, and products.

The opened shopping center seamlessly connects three areas with a wealth of books and smart lifestyle proposals: a food zone with Izumi consisting of restaurants, a food court, and food supermarket; a living zone with the new home improvement center Cainz offering different lifestyles; and T-SITE with the element of culture.

1946-

Early times after founding

In 1946, former president Yoshimasa Yamanishi started a small stall outside in the burned-out city of Hiroshima. While starting out selling dried persimmons, he steered toward the wholesale business a year later due to increasing demand for clothing, and decided to expand into retail in 1959.

1961-

Growing years

At a time when face-to-face sales were the norm, he opened a self-service supermarket where customers would get products themselves and bring them to cash registers. The Company's stock was listed on the Second Section of the Osaka Securities Exchange, and on the Hiroshima Securities Exchange in 1978.

1980-

Growth phase

While laying its foundations in Hiroshima, the Company expanded its fields of business by building regional dominance in Okayama and Yamaguchi prefectures in the Setouchi region. In addition, after initiatives such as entering the new business category of fashion building development, introducing information technology, and being at the forefront of hiring women in the industry, the Company's stock was listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 1987.

1990-

Rapid growth years

With the cooperation of local governments and residents, the Company opened Youme Town shopping centers to revitalize communities.

Betting on its future, it also expanded into Kyushu, aiming for cooperation and shared prosperity with local communities throughout western Japan.

2000-

Innovative years

The Company strengthened profitability through mergers and acquisitions to expand into Kumamoto Prefecture, and promoted various formats of store development that suited local characteristics and conditions. Izumi celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding in 2011, and began the challenge to become a "one trillion yen company" in the next 100 years.

2012-

New stage

Izumi is working to expand its products and services, including by opening the new type of shopping center called LECT, forming a business alliance with Seven & i Holdings, and creating its own manufacturing brand "zehi."
