HA NOI (Biz Hub) — French supermarket chain Big C plans to open four new supermarkets across Viet Nam this year, said Duong Thi Quynh Trang, Big C's PR director.

Trang noted that Big C Ha Long in Quang Ninh Province, to be launched in April, will be the first of these, and the second will be Big C Quy Nhon in the central Binh Dinh province, which will be launched in May. The other two locations have not yet been confirmed.

With 26 supermarkets currently in the country, Big C recognised there was a substantial market in Viet Nam, where the retail sector accounted for only 30 per cent of market share.

On the Lunar New Year in February, Big C's purchasing power increased by 14 per cent over the previous year.—VNS
