The company already operates more than 400 large-scale, general merchandise stores throughout Japan as well as in Malaysia, Thailand and China. AEON also operates around 600 supermarket outlets, more than 3,000 convenience stores and 3,500 specialty shops, in addition to shopping-mall development, financial services, entertainment, food services and much more.
