The Yoroz Mart (Japanese: ヨロズマート Yorozumāto) (formerly known as the Yo-kai Watch Yoroz Mart (Japanese: 妖怪ウオッチ ヨロズマート Yōkai Wotchi Yorozumāto) prior to July 2017) were a chain of stores that operated all over Japan, based off the in-universe counterpart.

They sold merchandise, often related to Yo-kai Watch. It includes collectible medals and Yo-kai Watches, various food, t-shirts and exclusive plushies. After the store was re-branded in July 2017, Merchandise relating to other Level-5 franchises including The Snack World and Inazuma Eleven started to be sold.

The very first store opened on October 23, 2015 in Lalaport Toyosu, in Tokyo and more stores opened up across the country over time. Five of the stores were smaller outlets, which were called the Yoroz Mart Mini (Japanese: ヨロズマートミニ Yorozumāto mini) and offered slightly less of a selection of Yo-kai Watch merchandise.

Throughout 2018-2019, the Yoroz Mart stores have closed down, and the last main shop in Fukuoka closed on February 24, 2019. However, they will continue to sell items on their website. Though the shop was closed, some items were made available at the GraffArt Shop in MAGNET by Shibuya109 on April 20, 2019.

Overview

The store is designed to look like a part of the world of the franchise, with some parts of the store resembling the iconic Springdale setting. The Gran Tree store has a real-life recreation of the Crank-a-kai, which function exactly like the gasha machines containing collectable Yo-kai Medals.

Songs from the Yo-kai Watch soundtrack are usually played in store, including the opening and ending themes of the anime series. The Fukuoka store had a real-life Banter Bakery, where they sold freshly-baked food themed after the characters.

Occasionally, the store went under a Terror Time event where the lights will be dimmed, some of the staff members will be wearing an Oni cloak and everyone is advised to move slowly and not get caught. When they are caught, the store goes through a countdown phase while scenes of Nate getting chased by Gargaros from the anime are played as the visuals. When the countdown ends, the lights in the store go back to normal.

There were a total of nine chains that operate across Japan. The first ever store that opened was in the Lalaport TOYOSU, that is located in Koto, Tokyo, Japan. It opened in late 2015, which was sometime around when the third version of Yo-kai Watch Blasters came out. In summer 2016, a few more stores opened across parts of Japan.

On October 23, 2015, the very first Yoroz Mart store opened in Lalaport Toyosu, Tokyo. The first 1,000 children attended and got a limited-edition Hinozall B Medal. For the first two days, there was a concert where Cotori With Stitchbird and Dream5 performed Yo-kai Excercise No.1 and Space Dance respectively in commemoration of the store's opening.

The second Yoroz Mart branch was officially opened in Tokyo Station on March 16, 2016, for a limited time until November 30, 2016, but the second permanent branch opened in Fukuoka on July 1, 2016.

Rebranding

In 2017, the Yo-kai Watch Yoroz Mart was rebranded to the "Yoroz Mart", to coincide with the Japanese release of The Snack World. From that point on, they started to sell items from Level-5's other franchises such as Inzauma Eleven and Professor Layton.

Closure

The announcement of the last Yoroz Mart branch closure in Fukuoka, that was posted on the official Twitter Account.

On September 24, 2017, it was announced that one of the Yoroz Mart stores would be closing, which was one of the Grand Tree Musashikosugi in Kawasaki. While the reasoning for closure was unknown, it was likely due to the decline in sales and popularity of the franchise.

On April 2, 2018, it was announced that three more of the Yoroz Mart stores were closing, though for unknown reasons and April 20, 2018, more of the stores (including most of the Yoroz Mart Mini branches) were announced for closure, including the very first location that opened up at Lalaport Toyosu in Tokyo.

Finally on December 21, 2018, it was announced that two of the remaining stores were closing in January. The Fukuoka store was the only one left, only for it to be closed down on February 24, 2019. Despite all of the closures, merchandise continued to be sold on the official website.
