CRC Thai Watsadu Ltd, a unit of Central Retail Corporation that operates home improvement centres under the brands Thai Watsadu, baan & BEYOND, and Auto 1, has made another investment of around Bt500 million this year to expand its reach with the opening of a new store in the Eastern Economic Corridor.
Situated in Prachin Buri province, this new branch – the 48th Thai Watsadu Si Maha Phot store nationwide – responds to the growing demand in the province and serves to accentuate the concept of a one-stop home improvement centre that offers high-quality products and services at reasonable prices, according to a company release.
Suthisarn Chirathivat, chief executive officer of CRC Thai Watsadu Ltd, said, “With our continued success over the past nine years, we have already opened 47 stores nationwide with the plan to address the demand across the country. This time, we are opening up our 48th store.”
Located on Chachoengsao-Kabinburi Road in Si Maha Phot, the store will cover about 16,000 square metres.
“This location is part of the Eastern Economic Corridor where industrial, agricultural and real estate sectors have enjoyed a steady growth. You can see that within 10 kilometres of this new store, there are three industrial parks (304, Rojana, and Hitech) and more than 200 plants. This new store is meant to serve the rising demand from customers who look to build new houses and those looking to improve their old houses, as well as those in the industrial parks,” said Suthisarn.
“We also offer the ‘vFix’ service, that will make fixing and improving a house more of a pleasure for our customers using our experienced specialists, reiterating our concept as a one-stop home improvement centre that makes life much easier. “
