First one stop shopping center in Saigon Centre
Core tenant "Takashimaya HOCHIMINH"
Opening on Saturday, July 30th 2016

Last Saturday, July 30th 2016, through the joint venture between Takashiyama Co., Ltd and its subsidiary - Toshin Development Co., Ltd. with Keppel Land (Singapore) and two other Vietnamese companies, the Takashimaya Group officially launched the first one-stop shopping center in Saigon Centre in Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam under the shopping center name of “Takashimaya Ho Chi Minh".

Saigon Centre is located on Le Loi Street in the center of Ho Chi Minh City. This is the most crowded shopping area in the city for middle class residents living within 5 km circle tending to shop. This is also the area for the urban development planning where the major road intersection of various public transportation means such as subway, ring roads will be. Many advantages for the location of Saigon Centre – First one stop shopping center in Ho Chi Minh City – help many major stores in retail chains to be opened officially.

By taking advantage of the knowledge and experience accumulated from Takashimaya Singapore, we play the role of main channel to provide information and exchange culture in which Takashimaya Ho Chi Minh shall be the name of shopping center collected the stores with 210 brands for the total area of 15,000 m2 (covering 2 basements and 3 levels), and over 145 other retail stores for total area of 40,500 m2. We wish to give more contributions for the development of consumer culture in the region.

Furthermore, this project is structured from three small projects which is similar to Singapore model including "Retail project," "Real estate project", "Project on operating in a multi-tenant retail environment of shopping center" in order to take advantages of the affiliations.

At Takashimaya Group, the retail store expansion activity into global markets mainly the Southeast Asian countries is a part of our development strategy. Shopping center in Saigon Centre in Vietnam is our third destination after Singapore and China (Shanghai). In addition, in 2017, we also have the plan to invest in Thailand (Bangkok).

In the future, "urban development strategy" of Takashimaya Group will not be only limited within Japan, but also expanded to affiliated sites abroad.
