Japanese retailer AEON has launched its first hypermarket in Myanmar. The 2,800 sq m store is triple the size of its 14 existing supermarkets in Southeast Asia and its first hypermarket in the region.

The move is a response to the growing retail sector in Myanmar, which AEON has been pursuing since its 2016 joint venture with local partner Creation Myanmar Group. The hypermarket includes a large home-appliance sales space and a 70 sq m dining area.
