Monococo is a recycle shop that is very friendly to the environment.
Our business started as a handyman, who collects disused articles, cleans up the belongings of the dead, cuts grass, removes snow, etc. When Mr.Minato, our president worked at the site, he was shocked with the amount of garbage that was thrown away everyday. Many articles were abandoned even though they were still useful. Mr.Minato decided to buy them and sell them through internet and at the recycle shop. Second-hand shop Monococo was originated like this.
Monococo has two branches in Sapporo and another one in Thailand where we export products that are difficult to be sold in Japan to reduce the amount of products being wasted. Monococo Maruyama branch is a large-scaled shop which is well located in Kita-Maruyama area, not far from the center of Sapporo.
