Big C opens first supermarket in Cambodia

Supermarket chain Big C has opened its first store in Cambodia.

The firm has opened on a more-than 2ha site in Poipet, a booming town on the Thai/Cambodian border, with a reported investment of US$6.8 million and offering more than 1200 jobs.

A statement on the firm’s Facebook page reported by the Khmer Times read: “A soft opening for the Poipet Hypermarket was held under our vision to be the leading Thai retailer with customers at heart.”

Cambodia is now the fourth country Big C operates in, following Thailand, Vietnam and Laos.
