Apita Stores

アピタ

Huge Apita stores are a fixture in central Japan - they sell a little bit of just about everything - food, home furnishings, clothes, kitchen ware.

Apita is part of the vast Uny retail group which also owns Piago supermarkets, Circle K / Sunkus convenience stores, and the Kyukyu Ichiba 99 yen shops. There are Apita stores from Hokkaido in the north to Kyoto and Shiga Prefectures in south western Japan.

Uny also have a giant store in Quarry Bay, Hong Kong. The company, which began trading in 1950, has its headquarters in Inazawa, just north of Nagoya and a workforce of over 34,000 people including part-timers.
