the same period of the previous year
to 32.3 billion yen.
▽ FamilyMart decreased by 14.5% to 54.4 billion yen,
▽ Seven-Eleven Japan decreased by 8.3% to 182 billion yen.
Compared to the interim results up to August last year, the rate of decline in profits has narrowed, but the severe situation continues due to the decrease in the number of customers visiting the store due to the impact of the new coronavirus.
Each company plans to recover its business performance by strengthening its lineup of fresh foods and frozen foods in order to capture the so-called "nest-going" demand.
