Izutsu-ya to Close Iizuka Store

The Izutsu-ya department store chain announced plans to close its store in Iizuka, Fukuoka Prefecture. The company said its survival strategy for the difficult economic times was to focus on the Kitakyushu-Yamaguchi area.

The Iizuka store is the only department store in the Chikuho area.
