Looking for major Asian Retailers

Postby Chris_Austria » Thu, 28 Jul 2005 4:38 pm

Hi!

I have to do a very huge market survey, covering all important retailers of Asia (on a national and international level)

I found approx. 400 retailers so far, but I think that there are many more out there...

so I thought, as there are many Asian expats here, maybe you could help me: It would be great if you just wrote some big retailer chains (no matter what industry: clothes, food, hardware, electronics etc.) of the following countries:

Australia, China (+ extra focus on Hong Kong), India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam

about the size of the retailers: minimum 20 stores nationwide...

It would be so great if you could just write some names that you know + the country where the retail chain is located


Btw: In case you want to tell me that: Yes, I know that this is crazy and that such a survey will never be completed... :lol:


Thank you very much for your help!

cheers, Christoph

Is there nobody out there who could spare 5 minutes of his/her time to help me... I'd really appreciate it, as I've no idea how to do this without the help of people who know these markets... please!!!!!

Thank you very much in advance,

Christoph

thank you very much, Est, but please consider that I am looking for RETAILERS! I'm not sure whether Sony, LG etc. are therefore suitable (and if they really have outlets, I don't think that they are very interesting because they only have their own brands).

Nevertheless: Thank you very much!

Australia:

Sportsgirl (they used to have loads of stores even in Singapore but closed down and i'm not sure if they have more than 20 but you can check nevertheless?)

I dunno if these are relevant: K-MART, COLES, MYER, DAVID JONES

Singapore:

Capitol Optical Sells optical wear and lenses, retail outlets all over Singapore

Perhaps you could explain a lil further on what you need?

You're welcome Chris.

I can't really think of much but I believe that they do have their own stores though, doesn't matter I guess the others from the forum will be able to help you out with the rest of the information that you need.

Good luck! :D

@stefania: Thanks! Yeah, all these chains are important (but I allready had them in my database)

Was my first post not precise enough or why do you ask me to explain it better? I am looking for retail chains (such as Coles, Kmart, Ikea, Harvey Norman, Seven 11, etc) which are located in Asian countries (no matter if they are foreign owned or Asian companies)..

thanks for your help, I am looking forward to more input :lol:

Hi Chris,

Yahoo has a good business database, so you could run some searches there, something like "list of retailers Taiwan" or alike. Otherwise, use the chambers of commerce of the different countries. search for their sites on yahoo or google and they will be able to provide you with long lists of retailers.

There are certainly more than 400 around in Asia...

Viel Glueck!

Eric

@stefania: Australia and New Zealand are also target markets of my company, that's why I added them here... :lol:

and thank you again... btw: Restaurants are not important (thank god)

@eric: thanks for your advice... the chamber commerce is unfortunately not willing to provide much information without payment..

already googled a lot, but there aren't really any appropriate lists (hey, that's why we make one and try to sell it :lol: .. I mean, my boss tries to sell it, I am just his "slave" :lol: :lol: .... just kidding)

god damn, I can't find a reliable, English telephone book for China in the internet... :evil: going mad!!!

Hi Chris,

Not sure if these stores have 20 branches, but I know that these are the major malls/retailers in the Philippines:
Rustans
Linea Italia
These are malls there, but they have their own shops and sell lots of stuff:
Robinsons
Ayala
SM
Gaisano

Hope this helps!!!
Think of the solution; not the problem.
