Aeon Vietnam opening second HCMC mall

Aeon Vietnam will inaugurate its second shopping centre in Ho Chi Minh City, Aeon Mall Binh Tan, on July 1.

Larger than Aeon Mall Tan Phu Celadon, which opened in early 2014, it has an total investment exceeding US$120 million and covers 4.6 ha. at the Hi-Tech Healthcare Park of Hoa Lam Shangri-La. It will have four floors and a basement, with a parking lot designed to accommodate 1500 cars and 4000 motorbikes at any one time.

About 80 per cent of goods on sale at the mall, Aeon’s fourth in the country, will be made in Vietnam with the rest imported from Japan.

A feature will be a photo-taking area for children and families, plus painting classes for children.

Aeon targets 20 malls across Vietnam by 2020. The Japanese retailer owns 49 per cent of the Citimart store chain and 30 per cent of another local chain, Fivimart, and also runs Ministop convenience stores.
