Retail chain Big C plans to rebrand all its outlets as Tops Market or GO! this year, laying the Big C name to rest after 22 years in Vietnam.
Thailand’s Central Retail, its owner, began the process on March 1 by changing the names of three Big C outlets in HCM City, in An Phu and Thao Dien in District 2 and Au Co in Tan Phu District, to Tops Market.
The four stores in Hanoi in Tu Liem, Ha Dong, Thanh Tri, and Thanh Xuan districts will be renamed soon.
By the end of last year five Big C hypermarkets in Nha Trang City, Can Tho and Ha Long cities and Binh Duong and Vinh Phuc provinces had their names changed to GO!.
The company said the rebranding is meant to create a new look and upgrade its shopping space.
