The store was opened in 1924 and now put an end to its 88-year history for the construction. On the premise, a new shopping mall complex with 13 floors above ground and 6 below is planned to be built in 2017. However, if Matsuzakaya itself is to be open ine the new building is still up in the air. On the final day, for the special sale, more than 1,000 customers got to the store making a long line. The new establishment is aimed to gather much more customers in the middle of Ginza, the most popular and fanciest hopping street of Japan.
