"I think this program offers goods at attractive prices. I have to say 'attractive' because the products I bought were cheap but of good quality. They have been approved by the relevant authorities, so I feel quite safe," Hao told The Hanoi Times.

Nguyen Trung Phat, a resident of Cau Giay District, said: "I read about the program in the newspaper and took my daughter to see it over the weekend. When I saw that the winter clothes were 60% off, I bought some sets for my daughter."

Generous discounts on a wide range of goods are offered during Hanoi Promotion Month 2023, which takes place in the Hoan Kiem Lake pedestrian zone in downtown Hanoi.

According to Bui Duy Quang, Deputy Director of the Hanoi Promotion Agency, the heavyweight of Hanoi Promotion Month will take place on November 11-12 with the participation of 50 premier supermarkets and shopping centers.

He added that a wide range of businesses will participate, including trade centers, supermarkets, electronic retail chains, manufacturers, restaurants, tourist facilities, hotels, IT companies, and online shopping platforms. "These businesses will offer discounts of at least 20% on at least 20% of their products," Quang stressed.

Nguyen Trong Tuan, General Director of WinMart Supermarket System, told The Hanoi Times that to organize promotional programs, his company has been negotiating with suppliers since the beginning of the fourth quarter to reduce the prices of many household products sold in the Winmart system with a discount between 15% and 50%.

"We will offer discounts of up to 70% on many goods, especially household products. It will be an attractive shopping experience for Hanoi residents at the end of the year," Tuan said.
