Big C Supercenters officially opened its revamped South Pattaya store as Chonburi’s first Big C Jumbo aimed at wholesale and bulk buyers.
Company Vice President for Business Development Sarinthip Sathithien cut the ribbon on the rebranded Sukhumvit Road store Aug. 18 as the company put more than 3,000 items on sale with the help of 30 partners.
Sarinthip said Big C Jumbo outlets differ from regular Big C supercenters or “Extra” locations in that they focus on selling bulk quantities to businesses or regular consumers who buy large lots. The South Pattaya store is the chain’s first outside Bangkok.
