Responding to lightning strike incidents
We will suspend the repair and setup work for computers that customers left at store counters. This is because power surges from lightning strikes and other reasons increase the risk of damage to computers. All stores accept consultations and repair requests at any time for computer malfunctions caused by lightning strikes.

Preparations for snowfall
Although we have only a few stores in regions that are experiencing heavy snowfall, all of our stores prepare against snowfall every year.
From the viewpoint of securing the safety of our customers and employees, our Knowledge Center measures the current state of the weather and monitors stores by using the cameras installed at each store to ensure safe store operations that adapt to snowfall.
Reinforcing on-site auditing of stores
In addition to the specified audit items, we reinforce our audits by using on-site staff. Store managers and people in charge of each business category participate in the on-site auditing of stores other than their own workplaces in order to improve their auditing skills.
