Vietnam supermarket opens in Cambodia

A launch ceremony for Vietnam supermarket was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on December 29.

The 3-storey supermarket covers an area of 6300m2 on the Monivong Boulevard, a main street and thoroughfare in the country’s capital city.

23 Vietnamese businesses display their products in the supermarket, including garments, footwear, cosmetics, instant noodles, canned food, coffee and diaries.

Some other stands sell mobile phones and watches made by many famous brands around the world.

It also has self-service shops, restaurants, beauty salons, and an entertainment area for children.

Le Minh, the supermarket owner said his company has invested US$3 million into the construction work. He hoped the supermarket will help introduced high quality Vietnamese products to the Cambodian consumers.

Many Vietnamese products have caught the attention of Cambodian users. However, Vietnamese producers should concentrate more on improving the quality and design of their products to further penetrate the 14 million people market. Some other Vietnamese supermarkets are expected to open in 4 other provinces in the country, Minh added.
