TOP VALU: A Store Brand Offering Inexpensive High Quality Items
It's probably safe to say that when people go shopping, they're not only curious about the quality of products, but also about the prices.
At AEON MALL you'll find the AEON Supermarket. The store also has their own original brand called TOPVALU. This brand offers a wide selection of items that are high quality yet reasonably priced.
By producing goods in collaboration with major brands, TOPVALU is able to significantly reduce costs while also maintaining the high quality of their items.
For example, TOPVALU premium draft beer is sold at low prices unprecedented in Japan. This fact became a hot topic of discussion on the internet.
At AEON Supermarket they have a full lineup of goods in addition to TOPVALU items. For example they sell Daiginjo—a premium sake made with only the best parts of the rice—at a reasonable price.

At AEON you'll also discover a large selection of confectionery items. The shelves are jam packed with sweets and snacks that both children and adults will enjoy.
AEON's Convenient Facilities Make Shopping Enjoyable!
If you've been enjoying your shopping, before you know it your shopping cart will be completely full.
AEON MALL provides customers with lockers of various sizes. There's even a special refrigerated locker allowing you to store perishable goods for free!
Also, complimentary lockers let you store your shopping cart and its contents—just as they are. This saves you the time and effort of taking your purchases out of your cart, one by one, and then putting them in the locker.
With this handy option you'll be able to enjoy your shopping even more.
In several places within the mall, there are sofas for taking a rest break. A unique point is that the sofas are located in areas slightly separated from the stores.
In typical shopping centers, sofas or benches are usually located directly in front of stores. Because of this, customers might feel a sense of urgency to hurry back and finish up their shopping. With that in mind, AEON decided to position the sofas where people could actually forget about shopping and relax.
Also, at AEON MALL the parking is usually free. Even if you come by car, you don't have to worry about any additional fees (some exceptions apply). This is just another example of AEON's thoughtful consideration towards customers.
Inside AEON MALL there are also game centers and other facilities where you can have fun with several kinds of gachapon (capsule-toy vending machines), puzzle games, and so on. In other words, during a shopping break, both children and adults can enjoy a wide range of entertainment.
A Fully Equipped Kids' Facility
AEON MALL is also fully equipped to meet the needs of families with young children. Parents have access to microwaves for heating up baby food, hot water to warm up bottled milk, and so on.
In consideration for Moms and Dads, the nursing room has a door for privacy.
There's also a convenient children-sized toilet, something that you don't usually see in other countries.
When you go to a Japanese shopping mall, you often see colorful toddler shopping carts decorated with animation characters. You'll also find them at AEON MALL.
In particular, the AEON MALL baby shopping carts are known for being easy to push, even with just one hand. The halls are wide and spacious, so it's easy and comfortable to move around.
Throughout the mall, there are also small vending machines that are the perfect height for little children.
