An Isetan Chengdu/Isetan Supermarket will be opened in the In99 shopping complex in Chengdu Financial City, Gaoxin, next month.
It will be opened by Chengdu Isetan, a retail subsidiary of Japan’s Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings. In99 is part of the Chengdu Yintai Centre and is about 6.5km south of Isetan Chengdu department store.
Isetan Chengdu/Isetan Supermarket will occupy the first basement floor of the shopping complex, offering food and daily goods in a 2650sqm space. The lineup will include fresh and chilled grocery foods, household goods and daily necessities. It will also offer specialty shops from Japan, including meat store Sugimoto, greengrocer Korokuya and Tomizawa Shoten (Tomiz), which sells candy – and bread-making ingredients and equipment.
A food-court zone will feature eight shops, including the bakery Johan, making its debut in Chengdu, and Tonkatsu Wako, which specialises in pork cutlets.
The supermarket’s main corridor will be known as “Sunny Alley”, while the store will focus on the brand’s “food safety, security, reliability” credo. Areas will be provided for customers to experience food culture, such as a juice bar, a steak bar and a Chinese tea corner.
The opening of the Isetan Chengdu/Isetan Supermarket coincides with the first anniversary of the launch of In99.
