The BOOKOFF Group Enters the Stage of Creating a New Decade

In 1990, BOOKOFF started as a 35 Tsubo (1,245 SF in US scales) in a residential area of Sagamihara City, Kanagawa Prefecture, and in 2020 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of our business. We would like to express our deepest gratitude for your support over the years.

Under the two corporate philosophies of "contributing to society through our business activities" and "pursuing the material and intellectual well-being of all employees," the BOOKOFF Group has continued to grow since its founding together with approximately 70 franchise companies, and currently operates approximately 800 stores in Japan and overseas.

In addition, in response to the growth of the reuse market, we have been proactively developing new reuse businesses for affluent customers and expanding our business not only in Japan but also overseas.

We have entered the stage of creating a new decade for our group.

We must ensure the stable growth of BOOKOFF, our core business.
In addition to this, we will expand the reuse business domain by maximizing the assets of the Group, such as human resources, customer base, store network, and name recognition. We will solidify our position as the leading company with the largest number of customers in the reuse market.

On top of that, we will aim for continuous growth by taking on challenges in business fields other than the reuse business, based on our business mission of "providing enjoyable and affluent lives to as many people as possible”.
