Vietnamese supermarket and minimart operator, WinCommerce, says it will boost its WinMart store network by 720 more stores this year.
The plan includes 700 new WinMart+ stores – a hybrid minimart or convenience store format – and more than 20 WinMart supermarkets and hypermarkets. Deputy GM of operations at WinMart+, Nguyen Van Quy, told local media the company is on track with its expansion plan with more than 300 new stores opened already this year.
With the retail market now in a post-Covid era, the Masan Group-owned retailer is also shifting its focus on developing a multi-utility business model and franchised stores, which it expects to become a retail trend in the near future.
The company said it will work closely with local suppliers and producers to create a closed-loop supply chain and provide goods to customers quickly and affordably.
