Last month's sales at convenience stores nationwide increased by more than 5% from the same month last year, increasing for the fifth straight month, due to strong demand for nesting, high temperatures, and strong sales of ice cream and other products.

However, it has not recovered to the level before the spread of the new coronavirus, and the impact continues.

According to the announcement by the Japan Franchise Association, last month's sales of convenience stores nationwide totaled 923.2 billion yen at existing stores that have been open for over a year, up 5.1% from the same month last year.



Sales increased for the fifth straight month, due to increased sales of frozen foods and alcoholic beverages due to demand for nesting, as well as overall high temperatures and strong sales of ice cream and soft drinks.



However, compared to Otoshi before the spread of the new corona infection, despite the increase in the total number of stores, sales and customer numbers are still below, and the impact is still continuing.



According to the Japan Franchise Association, "Last month, the Tokyo Olympics were held, and sales increased due to the demand for food and drink from people watching at home. On the other hand, it has not recovered to the level before Corona. "
