HÀ NỘI — Many supermarkets in Hà Nội and HCM City are taking part in the National Promotion Month 2022, organised by the Ministry of Industry and Trade from mid-November, to stimulate consumer demand at year-end.

One of the programmes - the “Hà Nội Midnight Sale” taking place from November 25-27 - has attracted about 200 businesses, shopping centres, production facilities and local supermarkets including Central Retail, BRGMart, Co.opmart, Lotte Mart, Winmart and Pico.

Joining both “Hà Nội Midnight Sale” and “Shopping Season” programmes in HCM City, all supermarkets under the Central Retail Group launched mega sales in three days (November 25 to 2am November 28).

With “Cheaper than ever – Cheap Through the Night” theme, the supermarket chain Big C/GO! offers special discounts of between 35 per cent and 60 per cent for both food and non-food products.

At the electronics system Nguyễn Kim, a member of Central Retail, shoppers can buy household products with discounts of up to 70 per cent in its biggest promotion of the year – "Shocking sale Big Bang", a well-known promotion to consumers since 2006 until now.

Similar programmes are also organised by other electronics supermarkets including MediaMart and Pico.

At the MediaMar, a wide range of products from TV, refrigerators, rice cookers to fan heaters, laptops and smartphones of big-brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, TCL and Coex are being sold at discounts of between 20-60 per cent.
