The facility incorporates various mechanisms different from ordinary apparel stores and outlet stores, making it possible to enjoy shopping like a theme park.

First of all, after passing through the entrance gate, carts are lined up like a food supermarket. In a normal apparel store, it is common to try on a few carefully selected items, but at the facility, it is recommended to “put the items you are interested in in the basket first.”

It is said that the aim is to have a lot of points to try on and enjoy wearing clothes itself.

The product layout is divided into five areas according to taste and category. Partitions and noren curtains are installed here and there, creating a maze-like structure that dares not show the whole picture.
