7-Eleven Fukuoka Momochi Store: Eco-Friendly and Local Wood Usage

7-Eleven Japan has begun construction on a new, environmentally friendly wooden store in Fukuoka City. This next-generation store, set to open in late August 2024, will utilize locally sourced wood from Fukuoka and other domestic wood. The store will be equipped with energy-saving, energy-generating, and energy-storing equipment. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023, 7-Eleven Japan is committed to four key visions: “Health,” “Community,” “Environment,” and “Human Resources.” This project, in collaboration with Fukuoka City’s “Fukuoka Green NEXT” initiative, aims to promote local wood use, resource recycling, and forest regeneration (CO2 absorption).

The store’s structure and interior/exterior will predominantly use wood from Fukuoka City. Additionally, the store will feature solar panels on the roof and carports, energy-efficient in-store equipment, and new battery storage systems. This aligns with 7-Eleven Japan’s commitment to the sustainable use of resources and reducing environmental impact. The store is located in Momochihama, Sawara Ward, Fukuoka City, and is set to open in late August 2024. Source: 7-Eleven
