25 Apr 2017

Index Living Mall is known for its furniture stores, but the company is now hoping for success in the retail sector. Its THB 100 million The Little Walk shopping centre is set to open in the coming months with some outlets already welcoming guests, reports local media. Located in Bang Na district of Bangkok, the mall will have a Villa Market, a Starbucks, a Burger King and numerous other stores when finished.

This is the company’s 2nd community mall concept, The first concept, the Walk, was aimed at crowded communities while The Little Walk focuses on developing a retail space on smaller plots of land. Index Living Mall hopes to open 2 to 4 branches of the Walk and Index Living Mall each year, but this is dependant upon the country’s economic outlook.

In 2016, the company’s sales reached THB 10 billion for the 1st time ever and it hopes The Little Walk, along with the Walk, and its furniture business will keep revenue above that total in the future.

In addition to the 3 malls under the Walk concept, the company has 27 Index Living Mall branches with outlets also located in Malaysia and Vietnam. The company has plans for future expansion and is currently studying opening in nearby countries with Cambodia, the Philippines and Indonesia all possible new markets, reports the Bangkok Post.

Index’s furniture business began 20 years ago when it started exporting products globally and selling its products domestically in retail shops. Eventually the company would open its first Index Living Mall store in Pattaya. It has since opened stores throughout Thailand.

The company has moved beyond furniture in recent times and now offers decorative items under its own design. Index Living Mall also provides home service solutions and even has an electrical appliance store brand, Power One, under its umbrella as it looks to stay competitive.
