HÀ NÔI - Parkson Hà Nọi Company will close its last trade centre in Hà Nội on December 15 after eight years of operation in the capital city.
The Parkson Việt Tower is located at the Thái Hà-Tây Sơn intersection, an expensive section of the city centre. It covered more than 11,000cu.m, showcasing many famous brands, but the number of customers has been on the decline since opening in 2008.
The reason for the closure was not disclosed, but it is said the company has been facing many difficulties, including competition from the new trade centres springing up across the city.
In January 2015, the company suddenly shut the doors of Parkson Keangnam Landmark on the capital city’s Phạm Hùng Street, requiring shop owners to move their assets out of the centre at night. This had raised many difficulties for the businesses, leading to deep dissatisfaction.
In a message sent to its customers recently, the company said the closure would not affect the business and operation of other Parkson trade centres in Việt Nam. All priorities and interests of Parkson membership card holders will be maintained and applied at all Parkson centres in Việt Nam. -VNS
