Thailand’s Central Group has made its maiden foray into Singapore’s already bustling retail scene, setting up two Manchester United merchandise shops.
This could be the start of more inroads into the local retail industry by the group, explained Central Group executive director Pichai Chirathivat.
He told The Straits Times: ‘We would like to bring in our own house brands. We would like to be careful first, maybe open one or two brands first. Then you know whether there’s chemistry and after that you can expand fast.’
Pichai was in town recently to attend the launch of Maybank Singapore’s Manchester United Visa card.
