Famima!! was a chain of small upscale convenience stores owned by FamilyMart stores of Japan. Founded on September 17, 2004, the stores brought the Japanese model of premium convenience stores targeting the middle- and upper-level income group of 21 – 41 years of age to the United States. Famima stores feature upscale design and premium foods, packaging deli-style "lunch boxes" (sandwiches, panini, sushi), international and American goods popular in the United States.

FamilyMart opened and closed a number of Famima stores in Southern California between 2005 and 2013.[1] The company originally had plans for 30 test stores with 220 additional stores by 2009. However, the company's contraction came as quickly as its expansion and Famima closed many of the original test sites. There were nine active locations as of July 2010, according to the company's website.

In 2015, FamilyMart liquidated Famima Corp. USA and announced that it would be withdrawing from the United States market, permanently closing all remaining Famima stores in Southern California by the end of October 2015, in order to concentrate its resources on its network of stores in Asia.[1][2]


All locations were formerly located in the Greater Los Angeles area.
