The above two images are photos from a Family Mart in Sannomiya. A recurring detail that shows up in almost all Family Marts that i’ve encountered, as well as Lawson and possibly other convenience stores, is that the bottled drinks (PET bottles) are placed as far from the entrance as possible. In my experience, the bottled drinks are my most bought product from convenience store. Assuming this is similar with most other people, the drinks are placed at the back, so that potential consumers are more likely to be tempted to buy other products, while they walk past them.
