Stay-home bonanza: Bic Camera doubles delivery capacity

Japanese electronics chain sees surge in orders from the housebound

A Bic Camera store in Tokyo's Ikebukuro has a section devoted to gadgets necessary for teleworking.

TOKYO -- Japanese electronics retailer Bic Camera will double its ability to process online orders as consumers turn to internet shopping while they stay at home to avoid the new coronavirus. 

Last month, the Tokyo-based company expanded floor space to process online orders by 70% at a key warehouse in Chiba Prefecture. The company will be able to ship twice as many packages as a result.
