Mega Home looks to borders in Thailand

Thailand’s Mega Home Center Co, the chain seller of home and construction materials, is keen to expand its branches in border provinces to cash in on flourishing border trade and special economic zone activity.

Supornsri Naktanasukanjn, the company’s chief operating officer, said it aims to open 20 branches by 2018, including four this year with an investment cost of THB400-500 million (USD12.3-15.4 million) per location.

Founded in late 2013, Mega Home operates four stores in Pathum Thani’s Rangsit, Tak, Nong Khai and Chon Buri. A fifth store in Prachin Buri’s Kabin Buri is scheduled to open in May. New stores in Min Buri, Bangkok and Sa Kaeo’s Aranyaprathet will open in August and October, respectively. The eighth store is being planned.
