  • History

    Sogo was founded in 1830 in Osaka by Ihei Sogo as a retailer of used kimono. The company has recently faced financial troubles due to the president's failure to be flexible and listen to advice about modernization. Sogo applied to Osaka District Court under the Civil Rehabilitation Law on July 12, 2000. The chain has had to divest itself of unprofitable business lines including several stores in Japan (eg. Kokura and Kurosaki) and some overseas stores (including in Singapore). Other overseas Sogo stores survived under independent franchises, through which the Japanese company has also managed to raise capital. In Japan, Sogo is now a subsidiary of Millennium Retailing
