Japanese resale app company opens customer service office in Portland
February 28, 2017
Mercari, considered the e-Bay of Japan, has opened a customer service office in Portland, reaffirming Portland’s status as an open and attractive community for businesses all around the world. The city is already home to Japanese companies such as Mizuno, Wacom, Ajinomoto, Meiji Yasuda and Snow Peak. The talents of Portland's growing population from a wide range of backgrounds who contribute positively to the fabric of our community were a factor in Mercari’s choice of Portland for its expansion. PDC has cultivated the Portland-Japan relationship for many years, most recently via We Build Green Cities collaborations and the PopUpPDX trade missions to Japan, now in their fourth year.
