To Canadians and Americans, the style of this logo may seem familiar. I took this picture outside a 7-Eleven store. Seven & I Holdings is a company founded from the merger of Ito Yokado (a major large general store in Japan) and 7-Eleven Japan. It also owns Denny’s Japan restaurants, Sogo and Seibu department stores and the American 7-Eleven company. So, for my readers in the USA, if you go into a 7-Eleven, it’s a Japanese owned company.
