The new mall by AEON which is located in Kawaguchi City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan, will celebrate its grand opening on May 28, 2021.
The mall first opened its doors in 1984 and since has been exceptionally popular amongst customers. As consumer preferences continued to change and the retail landscape continues to shift towards digital, the mall closed temporarily at the end of August 2018 to undergo a period of renovation.
Now, AEON are preparing to reopen a fresh, new ‘AEON Mall Kawaguchi’ that integrates brick-and-mortar and digital elements. The mall will reopen with the largest food area in the region with a food court that can seat around 1,000 customers and boasts 15 stores alongside restaurants that offer Japanese cuisine, Chinese cuisine, Western cuisine and more. The food area will also offer desserts and groceries alongside fresh fish, meat and vegetables.
The mall is home to around 150 stores including fashion, home appliances, sports, amusements, cinemas and gyms which will provide customers with a number of high-quality brands and services.
