With Partners

Cooperation with partners is indispensable in our efforts to provide safe, high-quality products at amazing prices and provide customers in local communities with peace of mind. We undertake various initiatives to build stable, enduring relationships with our partners. These include partnership activities under a kyoeikai (co-prosperity club) structure and the use of a web-facilitated negotiation system that makes business discussions quick and efficient. Our objective is to respond flexibly to customers’ constantly changing needs.

Partnership activities promoting co-prosperity

We emphasize a strong sense of cooperation in building relationships with our partners, believing that this will become a source of competitive strength in a challenging market environment. With this in mind, we established a membership structure—the kyoeikai co-prosperity club—seeking coexistence and co-prosperity from an equal-footing perspective for both sides.
Maintaining, or better yet, improving the capabilities of our partners allows us to offer a product mix that epitomizes our corporate philosophy of “valuing the customer as our utmost priority” and underpins customer satisfaction. For this reason, we offer support from both a management perspective as well as a business transaction perspective.

Web-facilitated negotiations emphasizing efficiency

Stores under the PPIH Group umbrella can offer products at amazingly low prices and a selection of merchandise perfectly matched to the demand characteristics of each catchment area thanks to a supplier negotiation system that utilizes social networking sites. With this system, products from domestic partners can be sold at Group stores overseas as well.

Partner consultation desk

To maintain pleasant, healthy relationships with our partners, we set up a consultation desk where partners can inform management about any points they notice through their interaction with people at the PPIH Group.
