Vingroup turns retailer

Vietnamese real estate company Vingroup is launching a brand ‘VinKC’ focused on the children’s sector.

It has been 10 years since the group started providing retail space in Vietnam in shopping centres. Now, along with their range of international-standard Vincom branded shopping malls, Vingroup has become a retailer too.

Focusing on the children’s sector, VinKC will offer products and services for a child’s full development.

The first VinKC will be developed at Times City urban complex in Hanoi, covering over 9000sqm. It will gather global and local brands, offer diverse services, from shopping to healthcare, skills’ training and development for children.

When launched, it will become the first model of shopping centres, medical care and educational services dedicated to kids.

VinKC will feature a ‘Toy World’ that will offer toys and products that help foster physical and intelligent development.

Another highlight is Vietnam’s biggest ‘Candy House’, offering a wide range of cakes and candies from famous brands.

In the ‘fashion area’, parents can choose high quality products with diverse designs for pregnant women, infants or teenagers.

The ‘fresh food supermarket’ will be an ideal destination to choose nutritious and healthy food for the whole family.

VinKC will also offer a bookstore called ‘Intelligent nourishment’. The children’s Interior World, Gifts and Souvenirs Area and the Mom and Baby Care Area, all will have global and local top brands.

Meanwhile, the ‘Vinschool educational consultancy’ is developed professionally with classes and skills and intelligent development training. As well, ‘Vinmec Clinic’ has a team of professional and experienced doctors who can provide helpful knowledge for family healthcare.

“With a passion for the future generation to have a comprehensive development in intelligence, body and spirit, Vingroup has decided to develop VinKC, an international-standard model of shopping centers, healthcare services and education for children,” said Vingroup’s vice chairwoman Le Thi Thu Thuy.

The second VinKC is planned for Ho Chi Minh City’s Vincom Center. Vingroup will replicate the model in major cities across the country such as Da Nang, Quy Nhon, Can Tho, Quang Ninh and Hai Phong.
