Creating Convenient Store Environments

Universal Design

Aeon created its own original design standard based on the Heart Building Law (renamed to New Barrier Free Law in 2006)​ ​*​ ​established in 1994, which is used in the construction of new stores and renovation of existing stores. As of the end of February 2019, more than 760 facilities are New Barrier Free Law certified.
We are also enhancing functional design initiatives by incorporating universal design concepts into store design. In consideration of the growing population of senior customers, it is our goal to spread the concept of universal design to all of our stores.

  • The Heart Building Law, which is concerned with promoting construction of specific buildings that are accessible to elderly and physically disabled persons, was revised and renamed to the New Barrier Free Law in December 2006.
