Will Miss #145 - Family Mart

It may not look like much from the outside, but I always enjoy going to Family Mart convenience stores ("conbini") more than the other chains. The ones in my neighborhood are bigger, more frequently remodeled and cleaner, and they carry a lot of the best new products compared to their competitors. If I want to find interesting new sembei, the latest Tirol chocolates, weird KitKats, or strange new beverages, Family Mart is my "go to" place. It's also where I can conveniently pay my bills and they sell some decent deli chicken.

I'll miss Family Mart.
