The World of Convenience Store 2

overcast

Convenience stores have been so phenomenal in every parts of the world. If you do not see existence of any convenience store at any place you were to be, well things seem to be so strange. Entrepreneurs will not want to lose out making money by missing out the opportunity to open such outlet in every nook and corners of a town or city. Convenience store was so crucial in our daily life that if we do not have access to such facility, we find ourselves being deprived of one of the most sought after necessity of our daily routine.

My previous story on convenience store touched on one of the most outstanding 7 Eleven store in the suburb of Bangkok of the Panyapiwat Institute of Management (PIM) outlet. Located at Pakkret, the PIM outlet was said to be one of the largest 7 Eleven store in Bangkok. But in Thailand, convenience store outlet's size was not a matter of concern because in a distance of few shop units, you will find another store setup which literally means you can have access to probably up to few convenience store outlets within distance of several hundred metres.

While PIM 7 Eleven was being tagged as one of the bigger 7 Eleven store in Bangkok, the less popular FamilyMart in Sukhumvit Soi 33 (S33), can be the pride of this Japanese convenience store establishment. With a 2 storey corner outlet within the busy business and tourist hub in the centre of Bangkok city, FamilyMart S33 will definitely be one of the very interesting convenience store to be given serious attention. While FamilyMart was less popular in Bangkok, it offers very similar products and services but have been often overlooked by many both locals and tourists.

Walking into FamilyMart S33, you will embrace a spacious concourse area once stepping into it from the main entrance. Flanked with long tables complete with high stools and charging station located on the edge of the store frontage, customers will be greeted with a bakery area and also a coffee corner. Walking further into the shop, you will be greeted with huge variety of food and beverages choices, snacks, dim sum, hot food, steam buns and other selections of non-food and daily use items. The Arigato brand coffee was one of the signature item for FamilyMart and I believe this is one of the quality coffee that can be found in Thailand. It also offers some extensive quick to serve meals through microwave heat and also good choices of other cold beverages. The bakery items also being a good compliment to the coffee on the offer.

First floor has several sitting areas with some also installed with charging stations. The area on this floor is good place to chill,doing some work, social,dining and relaxing. It also has a toilet facility to complete the overall experience within a convenience store that also work like a cafe. So, if you happen to walk past Sukhumvit Soi 33 when you are in Bangkok, do get a feel of FamilyMart and the products and services there. It will definitely provide you with some of the awesome convenience store experience.
