|Customers experiencing the programme "Price is always low" of Big C|
After three months of implementing the programme "Price is always low," sales growth in some categories has exceeded 15 per cent and Big C has decided to roll out phase 2 of the programme.
Accordingly, phase 2 of the "Price is always low" programme started on September 6, 2018 and applies to more than 7,000 products in 15 categories of essential goods, such as milk, spices, sugar, cooking oil, fish sauce, confectionery, coffee, vegetables, and others.
"Price is always low" is one of the major programmes aiming to realise the mission of Big C and Central Group Vietnam. This mission is to "make customers’ lives easier," which aims to enable customers to manage their spending better while satisfying their increasing needs for nutrition, household goods, and lifestyle items. Big C’s extension of the "Price is always low" programme also helps to stabilise market prices, especially the price of essential goods, which tend to rise around the peak shopping season at the end of the year.

On the occasion of implementing the second phase of the programme, Philippe Broianigo, group chief executive officer of Big C and Central Group Vietnam, shared: "Since taking over Big C Vietnam from Casino Group in April 2016, Central Group Vietnam has been focusing on retailing and serving end-customers, stopping wholesale, increasing domestic products (96 per cent of sales revenue is from domestic products), sourcing fresh products locally (50 per cent of fresh products is from local sourcing), supporting local producers and suppliers, and, especially, supporting Vietnamese SMEs and farmers, implementing a low price strategy, successfully opening three new stores, and fully empowering the management at the store level.
The results so far have been very satisfactory. Customer numbers and the sales revenue of the whole Big C chain have seen double-digit growth. We will open a new concept store by the end of 2018 and continue opening new stores in 2019 onwards."
