Aeon opens first hypermarket in Myanmar

Date : 15 May 2019

Aeon Orange Thanlyn Sakura is opened in Yangon, Myanmar’s capital city, selling home electronics, clothing and other household items on top of foods.

First hypermarket in the region

The new hypermarket is 2,800 sq m, triple the size of its supermarket. In addition to grocery and general merchandise, there is a ready to eat selection of local dishes, salads and desserts in a 70 sq m dining area. There are plans to include a bakery in the store.

Opportunity for further growth

Aeon Orange Co is in a joint venture with local retailer Creation Myanmar Group of companies. The retailer took over 14 supermarkets operated by Hypermart Asia in 2016. The stores are now only in the key cities of Yangon and Mandalay.

There is more room to increase the number of stores in Myanmar, as the country is short of modern retail space,” said Masayasu Isozaki, general manager of Aeon Orange.
