Lucky bag To avoid congestion of first sale such as sales within the year Department store companies October 26, 16:09

As the government considers requesting an extension of vacation to disperse homecoming and travel during the year-end and New Year holidays as a countermeasure against the new coronavirus, department store companies are selling their annual lucky bags over-the-counter in an attempt to avoid congestion during the first-selling sales season. We are taking measures such as moving forward by the end of the year and canceling on the third day of the new year.

Of these, Matsuya in Ginza, Tokyo plans to sell the lucky bags that are sold at the first sale on January 2nd every year, this time from December 26th ahead of schedule.

This is the first time this department store will sell lucky bags by the end of the year.

In order to avoid congestion at stores, popular lucky bags are drawn by lot instead of on a first-come-first-served basis, and the number of bags sold per day is limited.

Matsuya says, "We prioritized creating an environment where consumers can shop with peace of mind."

In addition, Takashimaya has a policy of not handling lucky bags at stores on January 2nd and 3rd next year, when congestion is expected at the first sale.

We will accept advance reservations on the Internet or at the store from December 2nd, and we are planning to start delivery at the store from December 18th, but we will not deliver it on January 2nd and 3rd.

The sale of lucky bags within the year is under consideration at other department stores, and countermeasures against the new coronavirus are spreading around the New Year's annual lucky bags.
