Lawson, Yahoo in home delivery tieup

Major convenience store chain Lawson Inc. and Internet portal Yahoo Japan Corp. will link up in offering home delivery services of food and daily goods for customers placing orders online starting in January, sources said on Tuesday.

The delivery service, to be offered via a joint venture that will be set up by the two firms, seeks to tap demand in new customer bases, including elderly shoppers with limited mobility, the sources said.
