Retailers roll out promotions

Retailers have announced a slew of promotions during the long Liberation Day-May Day holidays. 

Since they fall on a weekend, they have been moved to May 2 and 3, and supermarket chains Co.opmart and Co.opXtra expect sales to be 50%-100% higher than on normal days. 

They have stocked up on essential and price-stabilised products and launched promotions, Vo Hoang Anh, marketing director of Saigon Co.op, the owner of Co.opmart chain, said. 

Co.opmart and Co.opXtra supermarkets are offering a buy-1-get-1-free deal and discounts of 50% on thousands of items, including electrical kitchen appliances and utensils, fashion products, fresh and processed foods, and beverages. 

In addition, for the first time Co.opFood has launched a meals package that customers can go to its stores and order for free home delivery. 

Saigon Co.op joint ventures HTVCo.op, Sense City department stores in Can Tho and Ben Tre and SC VivoCity in Ho Chi Minh City are also running promotions. 

French supermarket Big C has announced two promotions until May 2 with discounts of up to 49% on more than 2,000 items, including fresh, dried and frozen foods, beer, beverages, clothes, cosmetics, and kitchen utensils. 

Big C said it expects sales to rise sharply during the holiday and has double the normal stocks, especially of ready-to-eat foods, processed foods, meat, fish, bread, vegetables, fruits and beverages. 

It will also increase home-delivery services and add more cashiers and security guards to ensure customers’ convenience and safety. 

Rretailer from the Republic of Korean Lotte Mart, which opened its 12th outlet in Go Vap district on April 26, is offering attractive promotions at the new store. 

Shoppers will also have the chance to win lucky draw prizes like a Honda Vision 11cc.
