Hello everyone, today is a little extra in the Bangkok section. In my last article, “[Between Bangkok and Chiang Mai, Cambodia and Laos] How to get to the North Bus Terminal and map.,” I introduced a shopping mall called mixT Chatuchak, but I found a rather thick article in English, so I would like to translate it and introduce it today.
What is mixT Chatuchak?
The new dimension of Chatuchak Market, mixT Chatuchak Shopping Center, developed by Siam Piliyah Development Company, is ready to welcome local and international shoppers and offers shoppers a more satisfying shopping experience, following the long success of Chatuchak Weekend Market in attracting customers.
mixT Chatuchak also supports small and medium-sized businesses in Thailand by offering tenant spaces at rental rates of only 1,000 baht per square meter, an incredibly attractive price in this area. mixT Chatuchak Select attracts 700 stores from Chatuchak Weekend Market and many other retail markets and small business stores in Thailand, offering a wide range of unique and exclusive products. There is also a street food style food court on the premises where you can eat from 30 baht.
Construction of the mixT Chatuchak Shopping Center, located on 16,000 square meters of land in the heart of Chatuchak and adjacent to the Chatuchak Weekend Market, began in 2017 with an investment budget of over 900 million baht. The center consists of a 350-meter-long, five-story building that attracts a wide variety of tenants including fashion, accessories, food and beverage, food court, home and decoration, spa and beauty, and souvenir shops.
Mr. Chaiyupatumpa, Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Miporn Chaiyupatumpa, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of Siam Pirija Development Co. said the following. Chatuchak is an increasingly popular and growing business and office district with convenient transportation links to the intersection of BTS and MRT lines. In addition, Bang Sue Grand Station, the largest railroad station in Southeast Asia, will begin service next year and serve as an important transportation hub for Thailand. That’s why we built the Mix Chatuchak Shopping Center to complement our ability to become a retail destination that meets the demands of Thais and tourists in the Chatuchak area.
He added, “All over the world. To meet the needs of tourists visiting Chatuchak Weekend Market, we will provide spacious parking lots and complementary facilities and rest areas for shoppers who want a break from the hot weather. Expand business operations by making Chatuchak a truly dynamic and major landmark in Thailand. Help Thai SMEs to grow and contribute sustainably to the government’s Thailand 4.0 policy. mixT Chatuchak will improve business opportunities from the original two-day shopping period at Chatuchak Weekend Market by moving to a daily retail format with more stores and higher sales volume,” he also said.
