Abstract

Background We are using some kinds of living necessities everyday and regularly. For instance we are consuming milk, eggs, mineral water and Kimchi everyday. Kimchi is Korean traditional fermented vegetables. Even though housewives are always careful in keeping appropriate volume, some times they fail. Also they should go and back to mart every 2~3 days by walking or by driving car because of the living necessities. Here, I suggest the business model that consumers are able to buy living necessities everyday in an apartment complex area. In Korea, residence culture of apartment is well developed and organized. For instance, one apartment building is composed of about 60 households. In other words, one apartment building has 15 floors and there are 4 households at every floor. As one apartment complex has 20~30 apartment buildings, therefore one apartment complex has more 1,300 households each. In addition, there are about 10~13 apartment complexes in the new city, called þ Shindoshi þ , which means new and well-organized city. Also there is one complex office at every complex in order to manage and take care of apartment residents. We can use this office as a storage center in order to keep and sell the living necessities.
