The great thing about living on Phuket Island is we live that secluded tropical lifestyle while at the same time enjoying the modern amenities and infrastructure you would expect in modern time. DIY fans will be in their element with the news that a brand new hardware megastore is planned to open in Northern Phuket in 2015.
Jomthong Home Mart hardware megastore is looking to open their third branch, with Northern Phuket set as the location. The store will be constructed on Thepkrasattri Road, next to Phuket International Airport on 10 rai of land, which will bring over 200 jobs to the people living in the area.
300 million THB is being invested into the project, which has been born out of lots of local demand for a store of its nature. Thiparat Santaannop, General Manager for Jomthong, recently said, “This third branch of Jomthong will be the biggest of all our branches in 20 years. Our CEO thought the economic growth in Phuket will be in the north soon, Plus, other international brands have settled down in the middle of Phuket, which is high competitive. We are a local brand in Phuket.”
