1. About this recruitment of successors
Mr. Nogami worked for a major furniture store in the prefecture for 36 years, and has the experience of managing all aspects of furniture sales, from purchasing products to sales, creating sales floors, and advertising.
In 2003, I established a limited company and became independent, and in 2004, I renovated a building that was a warehouse near the wholesale district in Fukui City and founded Y2 Furniture. At its peak, annual sales were 50 million yen, and when housing demand fell after the Lehman Brothers collapse, business performance declined. is transitioning.
Mr. Nogami: “Due to the social situation at the time of our founding, we decided that it would be difficult to pursue a high-end route, so we opened the store with the image of an “outlet” store that was gaining popularity. We purchase products that can be wholesaled and sell good products at low prices.I have been in the industry for many years, so you can tell the quality at a glance.We also pay attention to the materials of the invisible parts, and we have products that can be used for a long time.”
Currently, we are attracting customers by placing advertisements in information magazines published in the prefecture. The customer base ranges from those in their 20s to those in their 70s, and the entire Reihoku region of Fukui Prefecture is a commercial area.
We have focused on sofas, beds, and dining sets to suit modern lifestyles, and our products are mainly in the affordable price range of 100,000 yen or less. Purchase at the timing of release and secure products that can be sold cheaply. “It’s only natural to keep furniture for 30 to 40 years,” he says.
In the case of succession, in addition to the business and store building, the transfer includes inventory products, delivery trucks, and light wagons. The products are stored in the store as well as in the warehouse. The approximately 230 tsubo store was used as a sewing factory before it was a warehouse, so the interior is spacious, making it easy to display furniture, and it is a building with a high degree of freedom for remodeling and utilization.
Although the store is far from the central city area, it is close to National Route 8, which runs through the Reihoku region of Fukui Prefecture, Route 158, which connects the east and west with the Okuetsu region, and Fukui Interchange on the Hokuriku Expressway. is easily accessible. It seems that there are quite a few people who use the expressway to come to the store from the Reinan region in the southern part of the Fukui circle.
We can also take over the supplier that “we deal with domestic famous furniture manufacturers”, which is the biggest strength of Y2 Furniture, and also provide guidance on purchasing and sales know-how cultivated through many years of experience.
Mr. Nogami: “Furniture sales is a business that is indispensable for food, clothing, and housing, and the need will never disappear.As I have done, if we can develop a product lineup well according to the changing times, It’s a job I can continue to do. I’d like someone who likes furniture and trading to take over the business.”
Y2 Furniture has established a reputation as “a store where you can buy high-quality furniture without mistakes at a low price” and has built up trust in the region.
