Thailand's retail company CP All Plc has earmarked THB14 billion (USD432.6 million) to expand its convenience and cash-and-carry store operations this year on the back of economic recovery and high consumer spending power. Of the total budget, THB9 billion will go to its own 7-Eleven convenience store expansion and the remaining THB5 billion to its subsidiary Siam Makro Plc, which operates Makro cash-and-carry stores. CP All plans to open 600 new convenience stores and improve its existing outlets, while Siam Makro will open 10 new Makro branches.
