New Makro Sattahip

Recommended Posts

If I have put this in the wrong forum forgive me, but there isn't one I can see for Sattahip/Bangsare.

 

Driving back from Sattahip today I noticed they are building a new Macro next to the recently opened Big C. They were just putting the piles in, so might be built shortly and save me driving up to Pattaya.

Pattaya forum is OK as most everyone who lives down that way in Sattahip or Ban Chang reads Pattaya forum.

 

Sounds like good news for people down that way.

Is this the same as Makro or a copy of sorts?

Aah, so just a simple spelling mistake on your part then, sorted.

 

It will depend on how Makro see the requirement in the area, the Pattaya one has a lot of foreign orientated products but you go to Rayong virtually nothing.

Macro vs. Makro let's me grin.

 

Makro

 

It's not a name of English origin.

MAKRO !

Funnily enough one of my favourite products is an anagram of Makro, Korma, they sell it at the Pattaya branch, hope they will sell at the new branch. But the Big C next door has less products than their branch in Patts so we'll just have to wait and see.

Interesting to those living in the Sattahip area.

Indeed, Makro was found in The Netherlands about 40 years ago.

The Thai Makro has been sold to a Thai company several years ago.

With my Thai membership card I can shop in Holland as well..But different from Thai, where everyone can get the card, in Holland you must have proof that you own a shop or any kind of business..

Yes indeed it is pretty much the same in the UK, but am I correct in thinking that there is money to saved in Holland and the UK, whereas in Thailand I cannot see that much difference in price if we were to compare to a Big C for example, alcohol would be one example.

Indeed there is little to no difference for most alcohol. No promotions, no discount, no bonus points for alc allowed by the law.

For other products I could tell a number of examples where Makro beats others.

And BigC is in fierce competition with Tesco Lotus for the HIGHEST prices 😁

Here a shop owner gets a card which serves to get a detailed invoice on a big sheet which can be used for tax refund(?).

Normal card will print a small thermal paper slip.

No price difference.

Always VAT included.

Years ago the daughter had a shop license. Long gone but I use the card unchanged.

Update on the building of the new Makro. I passed by today thought I'd take a photo to show how things are progressing, they are now on with the roof.
