Overview of the Central Group

 

The journey of Central began in 1947 with a family store established by Mr Tiang and his eldest son Samrit Chirathivat.  This business then expanded into the ‘Central Trading Store’ with a two-storey unit in a new location. It was here that Mr Tiang and Mr Samrit began importing goods such as books, ready-made clothing and cosmetics from the US and Europe.

 

In 1956, Central set a new standard for the retail business in Thailand with its first Central Department Store in the Wang Burapha district. Central Wang Burapha was the first shop to set up merchandising displays for customers and pioneered the idea of fixed-priced goods and services in Thailand.  This vision for the best and innovative shopping experience for its customers continues to live on with Central Group today. With the ethos of a family feel and a commitment to search the world for the best products and services, Central has truly become Thailand’s best-loved department store for almost the last 70 years. On 9th December, 2005, Central experienced a very special day. It is the only department store in Thailand to have received the prestigious Royal Garuda Emblem, which is bestowed by His Majesty the King of Thailand to companies with exceptional good standing, transparent operations, virtue and trustworthiness.

 

In 2014, Central expands its business into its ASEAN neighbor with the launch of Central Department Store Indonesia at Grand Indonesia East Mall in Jakarta. Our first flagship store in Indonesia promises to embrace our cultural heritages, give support to the local community, as well as catering to the wants and needs of the modern lifestyle and affordable luxury in Asia, offering only the best and most personal shopping experience and have customers bring back home bags full of happiness.
