1st Overseas Komehyo Recycle Shop to Open in Beijing

Economy

Nagoya, Oct. 1 (Jiji Press)--Komehyo Co. <2780> said Monday that the Japanese brand goods recycle store operator opened its first overseas outlet in Beijing.

In China, demand for luxury-brand bags and jewelry is brisk, but trading preowned items is not yet widespread.

Komehyo opened the store on Saturday, aiming to grow its customer base overseas.

The new outlet, named "LuxStory," handles products from some 1,000 brands.

As Japanese outlets do, the Beijing store makes appraisers who passed in-house examinations evaluate items brought in.
