BANGKOK, March 30 (TNA) – Donki Mall, a Japanese mall warmly welcomed by Thais, will open its new branch at the MBK shopping center late this year with the “Japan Town” concept.
MBK chief executive officer and president Suvait Theeravachirakul and Donki (Thailand) president Yosuke Shimanuki signed a contract for the planned opening of the new branch of the concept store Donki Mall at MBK.
MBK and Donki wanted to provide Thai and foreign shoppers with easy access to unique and quality Japanese products, Mr Suvait said.
MBK had the potential because it was a big shopping center at the heart of Bangkok standing on a prime business location connected with electric trains and many tourists visited it, Mr Yosuke said.
Donki Mall would import more Japanese products to Thailand to suit its plan to open about 10 new branches in three years, he said.
The MBK branch to cover 2,200 square meters is being decorated with the concept of “Japan Town” to resemble the Don Quijote mall in Japan so that customers will feel like being shopping in Japan.
The new branch that will open late this year will gather products of Japanese brands at one place and update visitors on new trends in Japan. That would attract Thai customers and tourists who would be arriving in the future, Mr Yosuke said. (TNA)
