Supermarkets, malls battle for sales in Vietnam

Supermarkets and malls in Ho Chi Minh City are overflowing with a wide variety of products for the upcoming Tet, which falls on February 8 this year.

Besides increasing stocks by many times, they are also offering steep discounts on most items ranging from fresh foods and gift hampers to household utensils and fashion products.

To meet the Tet rush, supermarkets have extended their opening hours as well as increased the number of cashiers to ensure convenience during the country’s biggest festival.
