'Golden Price Shock Day’, a part of Hanoi Promotion Month 2023, lured droves of the city's consumers to shopping hotspots on November 11-12.

According to Hanoi Centre for Investment, Trade and Tourism Promotion (HPA), ‘Golden Price Shock Day’ took place simultaneously at 50 separate shopping spots, including major supermarket and store brands in Hanoi, such as Big C, BRGMart, MediaMart, MM Megamarket, Nguyen Kim, Saigon Co.opmart, and Winmart.

The shopping venues offered consumers more than one million products carrying discounts from 20 per cent to over half off, with some items even offering huge discounts of over 70 per cent.

These tempting offers helped draw in droves of shoppers, resulting in an almost triple increase in retailer revenue. Hanoi Promotion Month began on October 27 and is slated to end on November 30.

In parallel to Hanoi Promotion Month, Big C is running a specific scheme offering the consumers thousands of ‘always low price’ products, focusing on essential goods with most price incentive to customers."

On ‘Golden Price Shock Day’, BGRMart ran a scheme allowing consumers to taste many products, along with offering up to 50 price discounts on a number of essential goods, with a focus on beverages, rice, cosmetic items, and processed food.
