There is a bustling atmosphere at major supermarket chains in Hanoi like Nguyen Kim, HC and Media Mart which have offered discounts on electronic products, especially TVs with prices cut by up to 40 percent.
Customers of Oled and Qled TVs with sizes from 55 to 77 inches in Nguyen Kim supermarket chain will get a VND5 million ($215 ) discount and can pay by installments with a zero percent interest rate. 45-inch smart TVs are also discounted from VND1 million-2 million ($43 -86 ).
Meanwhile, apart from 50 percent off, Pico supermarket chain also promises attractive gifts for customers.
Pico supermarket in Nguyen Trai street said its TV sales have increased sharply with turnover up 20-30 percent against the same period last year.
Electronic maintenance and small-scale electronic shops are also enjoying a boom in business.
