Yamano Music Leases 3 Sales Floors to KDDI

Yamano Music recently announced that the company had reached an agreement with KDDI to lease basement, first and second floors of its main store in Ginza Tokyo.

The 7-story building had mainly CDs on the 1st floor, but the company moved them to upper floors in the summer of 2019 as CD market has been stagnant for long. KDDI plans to open Ginza 456 concept store this summer using the 3 floors.

Yamano Music expects the lease will contribute to increase not only store traffic but also generate synergy effect in the Tokyo’s luxurious shopping district by organizing attractive events in collaboration of the two companies.
