Of the total, subsidized goods revenue went up 16.3 percent to reach VND7,569 billion.
Mr. Nguyen Anh Duc, standing deputy director general of Saigon Union of Trading Co-operatives (Saigon Co.op), said that the system’s sales and customers tripled normal and increased 10 percent over the previous Tet.
Despite of highly surging customers to Co.opMart supermarkets, there was neither goods scarcity nor cashier congestion, he said. Total sales of the supermarket system posted a year on year increase of 11 percent from the second to the sixth day of the Lunar New Year. Some fresh food hiked 15-25 percent.
Market stabilization businesses organized 361 mobile selling trips to outskirt areas such as Binh Tan, Can Gio, Hoc Mon, Cu Chi and Binh Chanh districts to serve local residents and workers in industrial parks and export processing zones.
In addition, Saigon Co.op, Lotte Mart and Big C supermarkets visited disadvantageous families in provinces and cities where they are operating and gave them Tet presents.
