The Saigon Union of Trading Co-operatives (Saigon Co-op) on April 18 broke ground for construction of the Co.opmart Chu Se supermarket on Hung Vuong Street in Gia Lai Province’s Chu Se District.

Invested in by Saigon Gia Lai Trading Co., Ltd, a joint-venture between Saigon Co.op and Gia Lai Trading Co., Ltd, the new supermarket covers an area of 4,000sq.m.

The supermarket, which cost more than VND50 billion (US$2.2 million), will sell around 30,000 essential items, 90 per cent of them Vietnamese products with clear origin, assured quality, and reasonable prices.

Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter, the supermarket will act as a conduit for the province’s specialties and other products to enter the Co.opmart chain.

Nguyen Hong Linh, chairman of Chu Se District People’s Committee, said when Co.opmart Chu Se opens, it would contribute to economic development, stabilise the market and ensure hygiene and food safety as well as create jobs. — VNS
