When Maxvalu was born and started to be used as a subsidiary of Aeon, the suburban Maxvalu was newly opened by closing the small Welmart in the center and Jusco in the center.As a result, the tendency to retreat in Yamagata has subsided, and fierce battles have continued to this day.In the prefecture, most of the municipalities have advanced, and there are many local governments where the only supermarket is Maxvalu Welmart.Also in 2003Self-bankruptcyI also took over the employees and two stores of Mitsumasu, a food supermarket in Yamagata City.[41].
