AEON Monthly Operating Performance of Major Consolidated Companies in March 2021
March Sales Trends:
At General Merchandise Store Business company, Aeon Retail, same-store food products section sales were up year-on-year due to strong performance from agricultural and marine produce, liquor, and delicatessen products all targeted at capturing dine-in demand. Same-store sales also exceeded those for the same period two years earlier (March 2019).
The major Supermarket Business companies also achieved same-store sales that generally exceeded those for March 2019 by capturing dine-in demand, despite the absence of the year-earlier sales boost.
Health & Wellness Business company Welcia Holdings' same-store sales were up year-on-year due to strong performance from prescription drugs, with a 14.9% year-on-year increase for prescription drug sales in March following an increase in the number of drugstores now able to process prescriptions.
Shopping Center Development Business company Aeon Mall launched in March an incremental rollout of "live commerce" events to malls nationwide.
