Yes, that's the language spoken here. What do you expect?

One could understand someone speaking Japanese or Chinese or even Korean... but not able to READ. Gotcha?

I think America and China already has these stores.

I've heard of similar co-op stores in the US, but, like the experimental Lawson store, limited to specific people (co-op members) I'm glad Lawson's Japan is working to make the chain profitable. I was born about an hour's drive from where Lawson's headquarters used to be, so I grew up consuming their products. (Us older folks in the mid-west still relish the memory of their chip-chopped ham) Would love to see them expand into the US again, with their Japanese cuisine. It's getting very popular thanks to anime becoming so popular here. I live in a city in a rural area, but in the last 3-4 years have seen about 4 Japanese restaurants pop up, while Chinese restaurants have been a mainstay of the area for decades.

So Lawson will not be honouring five finger discounts then... smart!

The same experiment failed in London.
