PHNOM PENH: This year, a $ 50 million Big C supercenter is set to break ground on the grounds of OCIC’s satellite city Chroy Changva. The investment by Big C in this new mall is a testament to the company’s confidence in the Cambodian market and its potential for growth.
The new Big C supercenter is expected to be a game-changer for the retail industry in Cambodia. It will be the largest mall in Chroy Changva, with a modern restaurant, import store, shopping mall, and other amenities that will provide customers with a unique shopping experience and a wide variety of products to choose from.
The new Big C mall will cost around $50 million, with construction beginning in June or July 2023. The project will take ten months to complete and will be ready for the Khmer New Year in 2024.
Big C opened its first supermarket in Cambodia in Poipet, Banteay Meanchey province, in 2019, with an investment of approximately $ 10 million, and expanded to 20 smaller malls in Phnom Penh and Kampot.
Big C is a well-known supermarket chain in Thailand and is operated by the Central Group, one of the largest retail conglomerates in Southeast Asia. The company has a reputation for offering high-quality products at competitive prices and has already established a strong presence in Cambodia.
The satellite city Chroy Changva, where the new Big C supercenter will be located, is a rapidly growing area that is becoming increasingly popular among both locals and tourists. It is situated on the eastern bank of the Mekong River and is connected to Phnom Penh by the Chroy Changva Bridge, which was completed in 2018.
