Borderless Japan turns a profit while doing good

Collection of small businesses aims to make a big social impact

Post & Post, a secondhand shop in Fukuoka, tries to attract shoppers with its modern, comfortable atmosphere.

FUKUOKA, Japan Post & Post, a used-clothing shop that opened in the Japanese city of Fukuoka late last year, is a lot more than meets the eye.

The 600-sq.-meter shop has 16,000 items, mostly children's clothes, but also maternity wear, cribs and strollers. Unlike most secondhand shops, where racks overflow with haphazardly arranged items, Post & Post goes for a more orderly and relaxed atmosphere. Garments are neatly arranged on attractive wooden racks spaced well apart from one another.
