A mini Do Home branch, "Dohome ToGo", opened this morning inside the Tesco Lotus main store on Mitthapap, near The Mall. Tesco Lotus is pursuing its general policy of reducing its own selling surface to rent it out to other businesses. Photo taken this morning.

Anton, do you think this is a sign that 'Tesco' as a brand might be readying for an exit of the Thai market (perhaps with a Chinese brand 'buying' it's current footprint)?

I don't know but I think it's a bad sign for the Thai consumer market in general.

Coolkorat, three months later we can say the answer to your question was "YES", as confirmed in the press today:
