PNC expands retail chain
13/07/09

In 1983, District 11’s Trading and General Service Company (former Phuong Nam Cultural Corporation) opened a series of stores on Ba Thang Hai Street which specialized in cultural products such as books, newspapers, discs, stationery, etc. At that time, in the context of the difficult subsidized economy, although cultural products were necessary, they were rare and unattractive. However, the series of stores received a strong support from customers in the area and neighbor districts.
 
Only three years later, with that support, the first bookstore under self-selected form which opened in Vietnam in 1986 named Phu Tho Bookstore (former Phuong Nam Bookstore at #940 Ba Thang Hai Street, Ward 15, District 11, Ho Chi Minh City). To create a big milestone affecting strongly to cultural products retail businesses, hundreds of large-sized bookstores under self-selected form which provide various products and services professionally by staff in Vietnamese traditional “ao dai” have been opened to welcome all kinds of customers all over the country.
 

 
Since that first bookstore up to now, Phuong Nam Cultural Corporation has been establishing 27 Phuong Nam bookstores, 6 Walt Disney’s product stores and 7 attractive book cafés in the country. (Please see the attachment for the store list).
Despite of the impact of the world’s economic recession and pressures of development in such a difficult period as present, the growth rate of Phuong Nam’s retail chain is ranking at the highest among Phuong Nam business operation fields. Store sales revenue almost reached VND 200 billion and gross profit rate was over 20% in the first six months of 2009, in which revenue per area was as follows:
 
With the strong determination to invest in the most effective business field, PNC’s leaders and strategists are continuing expanding retail chain and making this chain become the most developed one besides other company members such as Phuong Nam Film, Phuong Nam Books and Phuong Nam Brand, etc. During the first half of July of 2009 (from 10/07 to 13/07/2009) PNC officially opened three bookstores as follows:
