To be more precise, it's Lawson which starts i-mode ecommerce services.
Lawson, whose soon-to-be-ex owner is Daiei, is the second largest CVS chain
in Japan, after 7-eleven.
Lawson's in-store multimedia terminals registered about $380M in sales
(travel, concert tickets, etc.) last year. With i-mode, users will be able
to book items over the cell and complete purchase at a nearby Lawson.
7-eleven is planning a similar service this fall.
