Mr. Nicolò Galante, President of Central Retail, said, "As a treat to shoppers during this festive season, Central Retail is launching '12.12 Mega Sale,' an annual year-end shopping extravaganza which features a whole week of daily promotions and offers, up to 90% discount, and a wide variety of more than 1 million items from over 3,000 stores and 6 web stores. Following the success of our previous 11.11 Mega Sale campaign, we are back to excite the market again and to deliver continued gratification to shoppers with the

12.12 Mega Sale. We are committed to enhancing our offerings and ensuring easier and more engaging shopping experience through a seamless, omni-channel customer journey which can be relished anytime and anywhere."

The 12.12 Mega Sale event is happening everywhere both in-store and online, as a continuation of the successful 11.11 Mega Sale, which was the first-ever offline and online sale that took place at the same time. The campaign received great interest and responses from shoppers with one of key success factors being Thai customers' love for both online and in-store shopping.

"In the most recent 11.11 Mega Sale, Central Retail's online sales grew by 14 times compared to the regular day and 5 times compared to that of the same period last year. The combination of both online and offline sales also increased by two times compared to last year"

"For this upcoming 12.12 shopfest, James Ma will continue to be our campaign ambassador as he is a real customer of Central Retail who can represent the shopping experience and bring the brand to new generation customers," Nicolò said.

Actor James Ma, who was the face of both 11.11 Mega Sale and 12.12 Mega Sale, said, "As someone who shops at Central regularly, I especially enjoyed shopping during the 11.11 Mega Sale festival at both online and offline channels. For the upcoming 12.12 Mega Sale, I'm looking forward to shopping at my favorite department store Central Chidlom and picking up some stylish fashion items that I have been eyeing. This time of the year is a great opportunity for you to indulge in the festive season and purchase things in wish list or find gifts for your beloved ones while getting them at the best price. With the widest selection of product categories and authentic product guarantee, Central Retail enables shoppers to enjoy a seamless shopping experience conveniently anytime and anywhere.

Central Retail will continue to drive the retail business forward and push the boundaries by overcoming the limitations of retail platforms and services in order to create the best shopping experience. We invite all shoppers to enjoy the large selection of products of over 1 million items and many great promos during the festive season," concluded Nicolò.
