# What is “Kurashiru retail platform?” On this platform, we support retailers to go through digital transformation (DX), for example, to help them launch their online shop, and digitally operate sales promotion. We would like to hire new members for this platform-for-retailers model, which is part of “Kurashiru flier business”. # Why we created this flier business Retailers are struggling to maintain the number of customers, especially that of the younger generation, for instance supermarkets having fewer young consumers than before. For supermarkets, fliers tucked in newspapers were the main resource to maintain/attract consumers, but because fewer people now subscribe to the papers in Japan (25% decrease in newspaper subscription in the last 20 years), it is less likely for people to see/pay attention to fliers. So, we believe that we can be of great help to retailers if we display their fliers (digitally) on our Kurashiru app because the app has been downloaded more than 30 million times, and the main users are in their 20s and 30s. This is also a brilliant solution to already Kurashiru users who have thought “where can I buy ingredients for recipes I find on Kurashiru”.

# This business’s future plan and the reason why we are now hiring Currently, we display retailers’ fliers on Kurashiru app and on our own website. We also suggest recipes matching the promoted goods on the fliers, out of 38,000 recipes on Kurashiru.
