Qingdao Aeon to Resume Full-Fledged Operations of Jusco Huangdao Shopping Center on Nov. 24

Aeon is pleased to announce that Qingdao Aeon Dongtai Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Qingdao Aeon) will
fully reopen the Jusco Huangdao Shopping Center (hereinafter referred to as the SC) on November 24, in Qingdao,
Shandong Province, the People’s Republic of China.
The mall-type SC was opened with its anchor GMS store, the Jusco Huangdao Store, and 56 other specialty stores
in the Qingdao Economic and Technological Development Zone in December 2005. Features of the SC include
the composition of sales floors that are designed to meet the needs of young families, which comprise a significant
ratio of the local households in the market area, as well as a spacious shopping environment that boasts high
ceilings and wide aisles, which have brought strong support among local customers. Community-oriented
environmental conservation and social contribution are also the focus of its activities. Since its opening, its
employees have been engaged in community-based activities for environmental and social contributions,
including tree planting, cleaning activities and visits to nursing homes for the elderly.
On September 15, the SC suffered from the demonstrations which caused severe damage and forcied the mall to
temporarily suspend operations. Since the attack, the SC has received many inquiries and requests from local
customers for early resumption of operations. Being supported and encouraged by such sentiment, employees of
the SC together with those of the Aeon Group have been making utmost efforts toward recovery. To our delight,
the SC was able to reopen most of its mall zones as quickly as October 1 and also partially resumed operation of
the Jusco Huangdao Store, excluding a section of the food floor, on October 4. Ultimately, all floors were returned
to normal and have resumed full operations. The SC is now taking a new step forward into the future.
On October 25, Qingdao Aeon opened a new supermarket, Qingdao Aeon Marina City Store, in Shinan District,
the most developed area of Qingdao. The supermarket targets those in their 20s and 30s who are conscious of new
information and trends and has been gaining growing support from local customers.
Aeon will continue business development in China while abiding by the unchanging principles of “pursuing peace,
respecting humanity and contributing to local communities, always with the customers’s point of view as its
core.”
