Vietnam’s Mobile World saw a 43 per cent jump in revenue in the first five months of this year.
The mobile device and consumer electronics retailer posted net sales of VND37 trillion (US$1.61 billion) and an after-tax profit of $55.8 million, 44 per cent up year-on-year.
Of its divisions, electronic retail arm Dien May Xanh accounted for 56 per cent, mobile phone retail chain The Gioi Di Dong 41 per cent, and its fledgling grocery chain Bach Hoa Xanh 3 per cent.
According to Mobile World’s CEO Tran Kinh Doanh, the company plans to expand Bach Hoa Xanh to 1000 stores in Ho Chi Minh City, and more in other provinces.
The Gioi Di Dong chain has scaled down its network to 500 stores this year after closing six stores.
