"A" is an acronym for Agriculture, which is used by farmers.Consumer cooperativeIt has an aspect as (COOP) and sells its own brand "A-COOP mark product".

Because it is sold at stores, it is possible to shop even if you are not a member, just like the stores operated by the so-called consumer co-op.In addition, ECOPE does not carry out any business other than selling daily necessities.Controls A-COOP chain member companies nationwideJA ZennoThere is a national A-COOP cooperative organization as an organization within.

In addition to directly managed stores of each unit agricultural cooperative (including operations by subsidiaries or affiliated companies of the unit agricultural cooperative)JA ZennoCompanies under the prefectural headquarters (such as Ecorp Miyagi), orNorth tohoku-Kanto-Kinki-West Japan-KyusyuIs developing chain stores by group companies (A-COOP East Japan, A-COOP Kinki, A-COOP West Japan, A-COOP Kyushu) under the JA Zen-Noh National Headquarters.Although it is organized as a "national A-COOP chain" as a whole, it is basically an independently profitable system for each unit agricultural cooperative or each operating company, and point services are not common throughout the country.Many of the stores directly managed by the unit agricultural cooperatives are relatively small stores located in mountainous areas, and like supermarkets operated by general companies, areas that have closed or withdrawn due to unprofitability have begun to stand out since the 1990s.Some of them are outsourced to other companies' organizations[1][2]Let or convert to a convenience store[3]There is also an example.

In the days when the directly managed stores of each unit agricultural cooperative were the main business format, they were not called ECOOP but called "Kumiai Mart", "Kumiai Market", "Kumiai Life Center", "Agricultural Cooperative Purchasing Department", and A-COOP and "Kumiai Mart". There were stores nationwide that also called "Kumiai Market", but as the development of chain stores by group companies progressed, the store name was unified to A-COOP.Even now, some agricultural cooperatives do not call it A-COOP, but "Kumiai Market".[4][5], Or "A Mart"[6]There is also a store called.Regardless of these official names, there are many cases where they are generally simply called "agricultural cooperatives" as well as "co-ops".

Farmers market (farm shop)

Apart from A-COOP, there is a "farmers market" (agricultural products direct sales office) as a facility where producers nationwide sell agricultural products directly without going through the market.Of these, the one operated by JA is called the "JA Farmers Market" and there are about 1700 locations nationwide.There are stores where "JA Farmers Market" is incorporated as a sales floor in A-COOP, and such stores are2016 From April, the store name has been changed to "JA Farmers XX", "JA Farm XX", and "A Corp Farmers XX Store" instead of "A Corp Farmers XX Store".[7].

However, since the name of the group company is "Ecorp", the name "Ecorp" is no longer used in these stores, and the theme songs for in-store broadcasting are being broadcast as they are.Road StationHas been renovated toRoad Station Yubari Merodo(HokkaidoYubari), But because it is run by the agricultural cooperative, even at the roadside station, the signboard of "A-COOP" is displayed.

In some cases, JA, which operates a direct sales office that does not use the name of A-COOP at all, has withdrawn from the management of existing A-COOP stores and handles PB products of the A-COOP brand.

convenience storeIn some areas, A-COOP stores are open in the form of fresh food such as agricultural products in tie-ups with chains, and store formats are diversifying according to location conditions.
