Diversified management

Aiming to stabilize management through diversification, FAST RETAILING itself is seeking business development as well as M & A.


1997From (9)1998Until (10), the sports casual clothing store "Spokuro (Sports Closing Warehouse)" and the family casual clothing store "Famicro (Family Closing Warehouse)" were being developed.Although it was positioned as part of the expansion of the UNIQLO business, its performance as a specialty store was not good, and it withdrew in order to unify the clothing brand into UNIQLO.

On the other hand, in October 2006, the "gu" brand was launched as a new clothing brand.It is positioned as a brand that emphasizes price rather than quality compared to UNIQLO, and although it started in the Tokyo metropolitan area and Kinki area and is gradually expanding nationwide, the pace of store development is considerably slower than UNIQLO.

Commercial facility "Mina" development and operation business

conventionallyCommercial facilityIt was only a business that opened brands of group companies such as UNIQLO, but since 2005 (17), it has started to develop and operate the commercial facility itself.Borrow the entire building at oncetenantAttract, "MinaWe operate a commercial facility under the name.Currently 4 projects are in operation.

After staying at my friend's house for about half a year, I returned home and joined Ogori Shoji, my parents' house.At that time, the store "Men's Shop OS" developed by Ogori Shoji was handlingMen's clothingMainly clothing for men such as, but while engaged in management for 12 years,Aoyama of clothes,AokiAs suburban men's clothing stores such as these have expanded their business performance, they aimed to expand nationwide by conceiving an inexpensive, everyday casual clothing store to avoid latecomers.The reason for being casual is men's clothing (suit) Does not require customer service, and the fact that if the product is good, it sells is because it suits my personality.[12].

1984In 59, he became president of Ogori Shoji after his father, Hitoshi Yanai. In June of the same year, it was first called "Unique Clothing Warehouse" because it was called "unique clothing".Hiroshima cityOpened the first store in. Unlike now, the first store sells famous brands at low prices. (It's close to a so-called grasshopper shop.) It was said that shopping at UNIQLO was "embarrassing."Therefore, there was a situation in which customers who were ashamed to carry UNIQLO's original shopping bags around the store transferred the products to another bag.In such a situation, the loafers of BASS are mixed with fakes, and UNIQLO's reputation is further damaged and it is forced into a predicament.Taking this opportunity, we started developing original products.afterwardsChugokuWe will expand the store centering on.

View of management

As FAST RETAILING and UNIQLO expand globally, they are showing off their unique management outlook.UNIQLO's criticism that the working environment for young employees in particular is harsh (so-called)Black companiesCriticism,UNIQLO #working environmentIn response to (see), regarding his own employee education policy, which he talked about at Nikkei Business in 2013, "I repeatedly tell young employees to go abroad is to become a manager in the true sense of the word. I want it. If I can't do that, of course, the wages will be the same as for unskilled labor. " I think it should be done. (Omitted) It is normal to decide the basic idea by about 25 years old, make efforts and become an executive officer at about 25 years old, and become a CEO at about 35 years old. I think it's a figure. That's why I don't think I should be spoiled when I was young. "[14].

When FAST RETAILING unveiled the so-called "equal pay for equal work" concept, which virtually equalizes the salary system and salary level of employees in each country that is expanding worldwide, in an interview with the Asahi Shimbun, "work to do anywhere in the world The basic idea is that if they are the same, the wages will be the same. There are excellent human resources overseas. It will not work if the wages are too different to expand the business globally. " Western store managers are much higher (wages). I'm not thinking of reducing wages in Japan. On the other hand, wages in developing countries cannot suddenly be equal to those in Europe and the United States. , Considering a concrete mechanism "" ((TurnoverIs high) is the issue of globalization. I've been to employees for 10 years.In the future, the annual income will be divided into 1 million yen or 100 million yen,Middle classIs decreasing. Through workAdded valueWork at low wagesDeveloping countriesOf thewageIt is unavoidable that the annual income will be 100 million yen because it will be flattened to the black company. " I have an image, but that's a misunderstanding. ”“ I have a lot of work, but I'm telling employees to shorten their working hours so that they don't work overtime. It wasn't without problems. It is certain that the demand level has risen in an attempt to respond. Even if the store manager is trained, there is a reflection that was too urgent. "[15].

Yanai also said, "I don't want to leave the management of UNIQLO to my son. Family business is not good."[6]Regarding the future treatment of the eldest son and the second son who serve as group executive officers, "I would like to have you do something like a chairman or vice chairman."Kyodo NewsSaid in an interview such as[16].
