Thailand’s largest retailer, Central Group, is expanding into Vietnam with the opening of a Robinsons Department Store in Hanoi in March.

Managing Director Tos Chirathivat said the decision comes after the successful operation of SuperSports, Crocs and New Balance stores in Vietnam and the forecast of a potential 90 million consumer market.

The group’s first international store will be located on a 10,000 square metre area at the Royal City entertainment site.

It will be stocked with high quality products, including global leading brand names, offering Hanoians a great shopping experience.

According to President of Robinsons Department Store in Thailand Alan Thomson, Hanoi and surrounding areas have enjoyed stable and high growth and their citizens’ average income has also been rising.

A second Robinsons store will be opened in Ho Chi Minh City in late 2014, raising the number of employees of the two stores to around 1,000.-VNA
