Not many in the U.S. have heard of Japanese firm Aeon Co. Ltd. — which just happens to be the largest retailer in Japan — except, perhaps, for aficionados of Talbots Inc.
With more than 4,200 stores worldwide, Aeon, based in Chiba, Japan, operates retailers primarily in Japan, but also owns 55 percent of U.S. nameplates Talbots and J. Jill Group Inc. Talbots was acquired in 1988, and J. Jill in 2006 under the Talbots corporate umbrella.
