Some eat-in corners are not available at midnight (approximately after 22:XNUMX) due to cleaning or crime prevention. It should be noted that stores where the eat-in corner cannot be used at midnight are generally stores that do not have a toilet entrance in the corner or are behind the cashier counter.

In addition, Ministop calls a convenience store + fast food store a combo store to differentiate it, but it is not popular.

Initiatives for environmental issues

We issue the Ministop Environmental and Social Report every year to publicize our efforts to address environmental and social issues.

またChopsticksUses domestically thinned timber because it contributes to the protection of forests for the amount of thinned wood that is produced by an appropriate method. However, since domestic chopsticks cost about four times as much as imported chopsticks, an advertisement is posted on the chopstick bag and the price difference is compensated by the income.

In 2010, due to the structure of some stores,FSC certified materialStarted the development of eco-friendly stores that use wood made from wood.
