2020 Noto Peninsula Earthquake: About Cainz’s support activities for the affected areas
We would like to express our deepest sympathies to those affected by the Noto Peninsula Earthquake of 2020. We sincerely hope that the disaster-stricken areas will recover as soon as possible and that peaceful days will return.
Cainz Co., Ltd. (President and CEO: Masayuki Takaie; hereinafter referred to as “Cainz”) has been working with local NPOs and organizations to carry out various support activities for about a month since the disaster. As part of this effort, Cainz members (employees) directly distributed supplies to evacuation centers and evacuees.

The disaster-stricken area is still in the early stages of recovery, and the local community has expressed the need for continued support. Cainz will continue to utilize its characteristics as a local lifeline, collaborate with various stakeholders based on the “Kumimachi Initiative,” and continue activities to support the recovery and reconstruction of disaster-stricken areas.
-About the Kumimachi concept-
“Let’s all DIY our lives in the town.”
Since our founding, we have had the aspiration of “contributing to the development of society through commerce,” and this is a concept unique to Cainz, whose stores have carried out business activities while closely supporting the lives of local residents. Stores and the members (employees) who work there serve as a hub, carefully listening to the problems, concerns, and needs of each region, and
collaborating/co-creating with the various stakeholders involved in daily life, so that people can become independent. We aim to create a “town” (≒ local community) where each person can play a leading role, where everyone can have fun together and help each other.
