The programme is followed by the traditional “Golden Days” on November 12 and 13 which is an occasion for shoppers to get discounts up to 50 percent across the board at 32 major supermarkets and shopping malls across the city.
Commercial banks will join supermarkets, trade centres, convenience stores and transport companies in a three-day “Credit Festival” from October 18-20, encouraging customers to get credit cards and pay in cards instead of cash.
A Golden Discount Fair will mark the end of the annual promotion month. Held in the Quan Ngua stadium, the fair will feature over 200 booths offering quality goods at lowered prices.
Hanoi organizes the Promotion Month every year with the aim of boosting consumption and helping firms approach customers.
