Evaluation

Design of a framework to supply materials in times of disaster by making active use of the distribution channel owned by KOMERI. Distribution activities made by KOMERI, a DIY retailer that has 21 distribution centers nationwide and develops its stores in 46 prefectures, is very meaningful. The design of the framework is wonderful, in which a KOMERI store that people use for their daily needs is transformed into an emergency platform in times of disaster, thereby encouraging people to think that the disaster and extraordinary situation may exist just next to our ordinary life. It is expected to update the disaster prevention scheme design around the nation by expanding and developing this concept.
