Thailand’s leading retailer Central Group has officially set foot in Vietnam with the launch of a Robinson department store in the capital, aiming to turn it into a preferred retail outlet for young consumers.

The store occupies 10,000 sq.m of space on B1 floor of Royal City, a modern megamall project containing over 200,000 sq.m and more than 5,000 residential units.

It is divided into nine areas displaying apparel for children, men and women, sportswear, cosmetics, footwear, a variety of backpacks and handbags, and household appliances.

Alan Thomsom, President of the Robinson Department Store Public company, who is overseeing its operations, said it is the first time the store has moved outside its home country.

Throughout this April, shoppers will have chances to enjoy discounts of up to 50 percent and receive promotional gifts. They can also apply for membership cards.-VNA
