Ms Tientham Setthasit, Executive Director, TD Tawandang, expressed her desire to modernize traditional convenience stores and create business opportunities for more people, including local entrepreneurs in different communities. “With the warehouse facilities at WHA, we hope to streamline our operations so we can continue providing good quality products at affordable prices.  This will also enable us to also create employment, support small businesses and entrepreneurs, and bring back confidence.”

“We are deeply honored that TD Tawandang has placed its trust in our world-class services and logistics facilities to accompany its business expansion,” said Ms Jareeporn Jarukornsakul, Chairman and Group CEO of WHA Corporation PCL. “It brings us great pride to provide secure, efficient and strategically-located bases for TD’s operations as it strives to uplift the local community network and revitalize the country’s grassroots economy.  We laud TD Tawandang for its exemplary efforts to improve the lives of Thai people.”

This year, there are more than 3,000 TD stores nationwide, with plans to expand to 30,000 shops in 2022. The company is focusing on making its stores and services accessible to more people, including those at the most remote villages in the country.
