Saigon Co.op’s retail chains, including Co.opmart, Co.opXtra, Co.op Food, and Co.op Smiles, are offering many attractive promotions on essential goods for 21 days from August 20 under its “Proud of Vietnamese Goods 2020” programme to reduce consumers’ spending burden amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prices of many products are discounted in turn, including milk, meat, fish, fish sauce, fragrant rice, and more than 20 kinds of farm produce. Certain products are discounted by more than half when customers buy two of them.

From August 25 Co-opmart, Co.opXtra, Co.opmart SCA and Fine Life supermarkets nation-wide will gift customers who have Saigon Co membership cards anti-bacterial cloth face masks.

It will cost them VND50 billion (US$2.41 million).

Nguyen Anh Duc, general director of Saigon Co.op, said the most practical way for a retailer to contribute to the fight against the pandemic is to ensure sufficient stocks of essential goods for the next several months and have plans in place to ensure regular supply of these products at the lowest possible prices.

This would help prevent a scarcity of goods and keep prices steady, he said.

Two important tasks Saigon Co-op is focusing on now are supplying products at good prices and ensuring a safe environment for shoppers, he said.

In addition to ensuring a safe shopping environment at their stores, Co.opmart and Co.opXtra supermarkets are also encouraging customers to shop online and order goods by phone.

Customers in HCM City can buy on the Saigon Co.op mobile app or place orders through its call centre at 028.44558899 and get their products delivered home. — VNS
