Yoshitsu Co., Ltd to Use New Warehouse in Hong Kong to Support Its Footprint Expansion in Hong Kong

Tokyo, Japan, Sept. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yoshitsu Co., Ltd (“Yoshitsu” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: TKLF), a retailer and wholesaler of Japanese beauty and health products, as well as sundry products and other products in Japan, today announced that on August 29, 2022, the Company has leased a new warehouse in Hong Kong (the “Warehouse”) of approximately 2,790 square feet at Lincoln Centre, 20 Yip Fung Street, Fanling, New Territories, Hong Kong. The Company plans to renovate the warehouse in mid-September and put it into operation afterward. This represents a significant initiative of the Company’s business strategy to optimize its warehouse operations and enhance customer services to support its footprint expansion in Hong Kong.

After completing the overall renovation and inspection of the Warehouse, the Company plans to supply its best-selling products sold in Hong Kong on a regular basis to the Warehouse and will monitor the operations at the Warehouse on a daily basis, in an effort to ensure the efficiency and accuracy of the warehouse operation. Adding the new warehouse network in Hong Kong, the Company is expected to optimize fulfillment, increase the efficiency of deliveries for customers, and further strengthen its presence in Hong Kong. It is also expected to reduce the Company's transportation costs, shorten the delivery time, which consequently shorten the account receivable collection period, and improve the Company's sales and gross profit margins in Hong Kong.

Mr. Mei Kanayama, the Principal Executive Officer of Yoshitsu, commented, “We are very pleased to set up our new warehouse in Hong Kong to facilitate our continuing store-opening plan there. The pandemic is pushing us to optimize our global warehouse network, to address the global supply chain constraints associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. With the expanded warehouse operation in Hong Kong, we expect to better support our customers’ increasing demands in Hong Kong, improve our operating efficiency, and take our growth potential to new heights.”
