HCM CITY – With Tết approaching, more and more people in HCM City are shopping for furniture for home or for use at parties.
Many are buying furniture either to move into new homes at housing projects completed late last year or to renovate their homes for Tết.
In District 10’s Ngô Gia Tự Street and Tân Bình District’s Trường Chinh Street, which are filled with furniture shops, the number of shoppers has not reduced since last year.
Shops said due to the impact of COVID-19, customers are seeking items at reasonable prices.
Many are offering promotions.
Nhà Xinh Furniture supermarket chain has discounts of 15-25 per cent on sofas, beds, TV shelves, wardrobes, and others.
Đông Á is offering a 50 per cent discount on sofas, free shipping and lifetime warranty.
Dương Thanh Đảo, marketing director of Qui Phúc Production, Commerce and Service Co. Ltd, said a few months ago his company bought more machinery to increase production since it realised demand would spike before Tết.
In addition to working on new designs for Tết, the company has also expanded its storage and logistics capacity to better serve its customers, he added. – VNS
