World Renowned Japanese Bookstore Goes Online at JD.com
by Doris Liu
The J Shop, JD’s fashion and lifestyle business, welcomed world-renowned bookstore chain from Japan, Tsutaya, on August 26, showcasing a roster of books, tableware, stationery, accessories and more to add lifestyle aesthetics to Chinese consumers.
Tsutaya, whose Daikanyama T-Site in Tokyo is deemed one of “The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World,” provides an experience space that integrates reading, shopping for books and creative products, dining and enjoying coffee. With the aim of proposing a new lifestyle, Tsutaya has opened physical stores in Shanghai, Xi’an and Tianjin in China.
The collaboration with the J Shop helps enhance Tsutaya’s omni-channel retailing. Besides the online store, JD Logistics also guarantees smooth services for Tsutaya’s consumers. During the opening, Tsutaya offers options of “ordering online and picking up in store,” as well as “ordering in store with delivery to your door step” in some areas to explore the click-and-mortar model.
As consumers continue to expect more from shopping experiences and scenarios, the J Shop has introduced many well-known collection stores such as MUJI and NITORI to enrich the business layout and better serve consumers who are looking for lifestyle and quality consumption. JD.com and Tsutaya are expected to work together in the fields of product selection, marketing, services and omni-channel integration to lead lifestyle consumption with a focus on aesthetics.
