Wishco
« on: September 20, 2018, 05:47:11 PM »

Has anyone been to the Wishco supermarket in Korat?  I gather it opened a few months ago.  I only ask because it is an offshoot of Hokki supermarkets of Phimai and the next Wishco is in build next to the PTT station on the 206 between Talad Khae and Phimai.  As the existing Hokki s'market is complete rubbish, I'd be interested to know if Wishco is any better seeing as we are about to get one in my local area.

Hector - I've not been there but my M8 Henry has - he was saying that Wishco is similar to Makro with content and prices. When they opened, they had some eye catching offers online with silly prices - but in a very limited quantity I guess.

Next time you're down at Makro on the CC road - why not pop in ?
Wishco is obviously a substantial business. ATB

It is not associated to neither of the  Hokkee Supermarkets......Phimai or Nang Rong

Nookiebear: sorry to contradict you, but look at Wishco's websites (in Thai, but translate) and you will see that Wishco is absolutely a derivative of Hokee and it mentions the opening of the store in Phimai end this or start next year.

phimai rumors:.....
the owners of wishco in Korat and wishco in Phimai are two brothers.
Wishco Korat is the brother of the man that runs the biggest Hokee in Phimai.
Wishco korat investment: 600 million Baht
Wishco phimai investment: 300 million Baht.
They both will have food courts
(wishco korat has a bigger food court than the food court from macro. Wishco Korat also has a playground for children.)
Also good air conditioning!!!!!
I liked it.
