Moving ahead with omni-channel promotion through &mall and &mall DESK
Mitsui Shopping Parks are moving forward with omni-channel promotion to provide new customer experiences centered on brick-and-mortar facilities and Mitsui Shopping Park &mall, the official Mitsui Shopping Park online shopping site.
Customers can pick up products purchased through &mall at an &mall DESK within the facility and try on or return products, giving rise to a new purchasing experience.

Apuri de shiharai (payments by app)
This app enables cashless payments simply by holding a smartphone over a cash register.
This not only facilitates smooth payments, but also makes it possible to accumulate points that can be used for payments at retail facilities managed and operated by the Mitsui Fudosan Group.
Sumaho de chumon (order by smartphone)
Makes it possible to select, order and pay for food court products, and affords customers the convenience of being able to order from their table without standing in line at the restaurant. This also makes it easier for family members or friends to order off the menus of different restaurants, making food court dining much more pleasant.
