Culture Convenience Club Company, Limited (カルチュア・コンビニエンス・クラブ株式会社, Karuchua Konbiniensu Kurabu Kabushikigaisha) is a Japanese company that operates Tsutaya, a nationwide chain of video rental shops and bookstores. The company is headquartered in Ebisu, Tokyo.[3] The stock of the company was formerly listed in the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TYO: 4756), but it has since been delisted following a management buyout in 2011.[4]

History[edit]

As of December 2013, the company and its franchisees operate 1,461 Tsutaya rental shops in Japan.[5]

The T Card, the membership card of Tsutaya, works as a platform for a cross-industry loyalty program. As of May 2010, more than 35 million holders of the card earn "T Points" at FamilyMart, Book Off, Lotteria, and so forth as well as Tsutaya shops.[6][7]

On 17 March, 2017, the company acquired magazine publishing brand Tokuma Shoten. The deal was expected to be completed at the end of March.[8] In September 2017, the Culture Convenience Club inked a deal with China's CITIC Press Group to create a joint cultural content distribution platform.[9]
