customer values and purchasing behavior are also changing drastically.
We at the Seven & i Group are fusing new digital technologies

we are working to achieve last mile delivery.

    Online Convenience Store

    Seven-Eleven’s Online Convenience Store is a service that allows customers to use a specialized website to order from a range of around 3,000 food products and daily necessities available in Seven-Eleven stores in Japan. By linking the inventory to the store’s specialized website in real time, items are delivered into the hands of the person who ordered them in as little as 30 minutes. It is our intention to continue to expand our efforts to be a true ally to those customers who want to make the most of their time.

  • Expansion of the Denny’s home delivery service

    Denny’s, in response to the growing demand for home delivery services, has opened restaurants specializing in this service. By concentrating on home delivery cooking, the amount of time from order to delivery is reduced and we are able to deliver freshly prepared food with greater speed. We are working to expand the service, such as by developing a special menu just for home delivery.

  • Delivery of around 100 brands of delicious food in as little as 45 minutes

    Based on the increased needs for home delivery services, Sogo & Seibu now delivers department store-exclusive foodstuffs in as little as 45 minutes (date and time selection is also possible).

DX* Supporting Initiatives for the Last Mile
Last Mile DX Platform

The Seven Safe Delivery (Anshin Otodokebin) and Ito-Yokado Tokushimaru initiatives were developed to meet the needs of those who suffer difficulties in their daily shopping amid changes in the social environment, such as an aging population, an increase in single-person households, and a decrease in the number of retail outlets.
Not only do these improve the convenience of people’s shopping experience, but they also contribute to community watchdog activities.

At Sogo & Seibu, we collect children’s shoes that are no longer used and send them to the Republic of Zambia in Africa. We have carried on this initiative since 2009 in order to protect Zambian children from having to walk around barefoot, which can lead to various risks such as infection.

Safety Station Activities

Seven-Eleven Japan is implementing Safety Station Activities, in which stores provide a safe and secure space to safeguard women, children, and senior citizens, to create a healthy environment for young people, and prevent theft, shoplifting and fraud. The Safety Station Activities also provide first aid during medical emergencies, and are used in natural disasters and other medical emergencies as well.

Comprehensive Regional Vitalization Partnership Agreements

The Seven & i Group works with communities and local consumption, promoting tourism, preserving the environment, and supporting child care and elderly care. To promote these efforts, the Seven & i Group companies work in cooperation with local governments in all of Japan’s prefectures to enter into Comprehensive Regional Vitalization Partnership Agreements as well as special agreements for monitoring senior citizens.

Store Network Expansion through M&A

7-Eleven, Inc. has accelerated its expansion into regions with high growth potential by aggressively opening new stores and revamping existing stores, as well as by conducting M&As in line with its expansion strategy. In May 2021, 7-Eleven, Inc. acquired shares and other equity interests in the US-based Marathon Petroleum Corporation’s business, mainly under the “Speedway” brand. We have put our focus on opening stores in 47 of the 50 most populous American cities.
Utilizing this network of stores, we are promoting the sophistication of product development (including fresh food), the provision of new customer experiences through DX, and the expansion of stores with restaurants that offer Mexican cuisine to meet local needs. By strengthening the supply chain, we are seeking to grow our convenience store operations, with a focus on food products.

Toward a Sustainable Society through the Promotion of ESG Activities

This is an initiative for a sustainable society that has been attracting attention both in Japan and overseas. 7-Eleven, Inc. reached its FY2027 goal of cutting its stores’ CO2 emissions by 20% as early as 2019, so this goal has been substantially revised to cut emissions by 50% by 2030. Going forward, we will continue to promote ESG activities such as the installation of fast-charging EV stations and the expansion of stores that use 100% renewable energy. (Target figures are all compared to 2013)

Digital Strategies to Enhance Customer Loyalty

“7REWARDS” is a smartphone app-based loyalty program with more than 52 million members.
In 2020, the “7-Eleven Wallet” function was added, allowing users to make payments with ease. In addition, 7REWARDS is leading the industry in the field of DX by leveraging the latest digital technologies to provide shopping experiences, including the expansion of “mobile checkout (self-checkout).” With the ever-growing demand for convenient services that can be used any time, any place, we are also expanding our delivery service called “7NOW.” This service utilizes Seven-Eleven’s strength, its extensive, close-to-customer store infrastructure, while achieving an industry record of just 30 minutes from the order being placed to it getting into the customer’s hands. We will continue to expand the service area even further, to support the lifestyles of our customers.

Product Differentiation Initiatives

The private brand 7-Select provides customers with a new “food and beverage experience” that is affordable and high-quality.
Launched in 2004, 7-Select products have won a strong customer following for their insistence on taste, ingredients, and quality, as well as for being environmentally in-tune. Sales have improved dramatically alongside expansion in the lineup of confectioneries, household goods, drinks, and more. A current emphasis is on introducing more fresh food products in line with our customers’ rapidly changing lifestyles. The product development process is currently being reviewed in collaboration with the delicatessen food makers from Seven-Eleven Japan’s exclusive food manufacturing plants.
