RM100m for Aeon Big's renovation
SHAH ALAM: Japanese retailer Aeon Co Ltd is investing RM100 million this year for renovation works at its hypermarket arm, rebranded Aeon Big (M) Sdn Bhd. The latter was formerly known as Carrefour.
Aeon took over Carrefour Malaysia's 27 stores in November last year from Magnificent Diagraph Sdn Bhd.
"Customers can always be assured of the best deals of good quality, all under one roof, with enhanced product variety and good retail mix," Aeon Big managing director and Aeon Asean chief executive officer Nagahisa Oyama said at the launch of "Orange Campaign", here, yesterday.
The 70-day Aeon Big rebranding exercise from March 1 to May 9 will introduce the hypermarket's new look in catalogues and on the Internet, he said.
Oyama said six stores - Section 23 Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Wangsa Maju, Tropicana City Mall, Bukit Rimau and Kota Damansara - have been revamped. Work on the remaining stores is scheduled to be completed by the end of May.
"Stores will open as usual and the renovation works will be done at night," Oyama said.
Aeon Big's "Orange Campaign" offers discounts, activities and contests with attractive prizes.
On new openings, Oyama said the group had allocated RM24 million to open the 28th hypermarket in Kluang, Johor, in the third quarter of this year.
