Yonghui Opens First Warehouse Store

June 03, 2021

Retailclub (零售圈) reports that Yonghui Superstores quietly opened its first warehouse-style store recently. The new store is located in the Haixia Olympic Sports Center shopping mall in the Cangshan District of Fuzhou, Fujian province.

The newly opened warehouse store is a remodeling of a previous Yonghui store in the Haixia Olympic Sports Center complex. The former store opened in September 2015 with an area of 11,000 square meters. In 2018, the store expanded and installed two front warehouses: one for its Yonghui Life branded products and another for Yonghui grocery products. The Yonghui Life front warehouse occupied 300 square meters with approximately 3,000 stock-keeping units and provided one-hour delivery for customers within three kilometers. The original store temporarily closed on March 10, 2021, and the newly remodeled Yonghui warehouse superstore opened on May 1.

The Yonghui warehouse store provides both bulk and individually packaged versions of its goods, which are sold at the same unit price. Employees glide through the store on self-balancing scooters, waving and stopping to assist customers. The warehouse store also has a station for delivering packages as well as a shuttle bus service outside the store that provides customers with short-range transportation to and from the store.

In addition to the new warehouse store in Fuzhou, Yonghui reportedly plans to open two additional warehouse stores in Chongqing. These two stores will also be remodelings of current Yonghui superstores and will be located in the Donghe Spring area and the Renyue Tiandi shopping center.
