TOKYO -- Japan's top convenience store operator, Seven & i Holdings, will launch delivery services nationwide as early as 2026, Nikkei has learned.

The operator expects to be able to deliver food and dairy products to homes in as little as 30 minutes from its 20,000 7-Eleven stores. It intends to start offering the service in fiscal 2026 and compete with e-commerce giants such as Amazon.com.
