DA NANG (VNS) — Parkson opened its first mall in the central city on Sunday, marking its 10th shopping centre to be opened in Viet Nam
The VND63 billion (US$3 million) project, which covers 10,000sq.m in the Parkson Vinh Trung Plaza B, is expected to report sales of between $12 million and $15 million per year and creating nearly 1,000 jobs.
Previously, Parkson stores, housed in Ha Noi Keangnam Landmark, closed its doors suddenly on January 2. Parkson management unit said the stores' closure was a result of "huge losses" it and its partners had suffered since the shopping mall's opening in 2011. — VNS
