CITY (Biz Hub) — Takashimaya, a well-known retailer from Japan, opened its first shopping centre in HCM City under the name of Takashimaya Ho Chi Minh.

Takashimaya, which is located in Sai Gon Centre on Le Loi Street in the heart of HCM City, contains 210 brands in shops covering 15,000sq.m, including two basements and three levels.

Of the brands, 58 are new to Việt Nam, while another 61 are new to HCM City and 31 are from Japan.

Masahiro Yoshino, chairman of Takashimaya Ho Chi Minh, told Vit Nam News that this was the third overseas department store of the company.

He said the company had chosen Vit Nam because of the potential of the market and the growing income of the Vietnamese.

The Takashimaya Ho Chi Minh shares the same concept as its shopping centres in other countries, including Singapore.

Takashimaya Ho Chi Minh is the biggest tenant of Sai Gon Centre, which reopened recently after a renovation. With a total floor area of 55,000sq.m, the centre houses more than 400 international and local brands.

About 25 per cent of the tenants in the mall are new to the market, and nearly 30 per cent are food and beverage stores. — VNS
