The stores are made famous and un-miss able from their logo designs. The logo design for Big C is a clean and clear cut image with a giant red C and the words Big written in yellow - with a lime green background design. The CEO of Big C must be very delighted with this branding.

The very first Big C was opened in the early 90s, 1994 to be exact, and that store still operates today. The location of the first Big C Store is located at Chaengwattana Road in Bangkok.

And they are still going strong - in 2010 they took over another big retailer Carrefour. This brought up the amount of the stores they have to an incredible amount of over 690 stores nationwide. The Big C Supercenter in Rangsit was opened in 1995 and still operates today. They also operate stores in Vietnam and Laos.

Big C Prices


Prices for goods at the Big C are very reasonable for a supermarket. You can buy many groceries and dry foods here including Thai and Western products. As a rule of thumb always expect imported goods to cost a little more than the Thai counterparts. Remember if you are after electrical goods, you cannot haggle in a Big C, like many supermarkets at home their prices are fixed, no haggling, you penny pinching shoppers. Although, like most supermarkets they hold promotional offers for many perishable and non-perishable products.

 

Big C Shopping List (Prices)


Below we have chosen some products and have given you some prices to compare. All prices are correct as of April 2016. Most of the items listed are imported so they will be a little higher in price than Thai groceries or Big C's own brands.

Food Prices Big C Shopping (Price) List


Thai Danish Milk UHT 250 - 129 thb
Uht-Milk-Thai-baht
Kraft Salad Sandwich Spread 16oz - 101 tbh

We've also decided to add some electrical goods. So if you are moving to Thailand you can get a vague idea of what to expect when shopping in one of Big C's stores. Again, it is a good idea to expect to pay a high price for imported electric goods such as mobile phones or household appliance's.

Big C Delivery Bangkok and Thailand


Big C offer deliveries for their customers. Or you can order online and pick up in store. Usually online orders deliveries can take up to 24 hours. You can even order through their call center by dialing 1756 from inside Thailand. Orders over 1500 thb have the free delivery promotion, if you order items and the final price is under 1500 thb you will incur a small delivery fee.
 

Big C BIG Card

 
If you are familiar with western Supermarkets such as Tesco or Sainsburys you will be aware (like me) that they offer promotional cards such as Tesco Clubcard Points. Big C are doing the same. The more you shop, the more points you can accumulate. This then turns into money off vouchers for your shopping.
 
To get a Big C Big Card you can call the call center on 1756 or you can download an application form from their website. I strongly suggest that if you can't speak Thai, then give them a call - most can speak some English and can help you with your request. Happy Shopping :)
 

Big C Vietnam

Big C have a variety of their supermarkets located in Vietnam, so if your doing a bike trip from the north to the south, then this might be of great convenience to you. Back in 2003 and 3 Big C managed to take over an old chain of supermarkets in Vietnam. This led to the Big C invasion of 'nam. Just like in Thailand, this company is thriving in Vietnam. 'It's the Same Same But Different'.

In A Nutshell

 
I love Big C and I couldn't imagine Thailand without it, especially on them days where you feel like you want to be at home. Just go to Big C, buy some imported products and you'll get that taste of home to pick you up again. I remember a funny experience at a Big C in Bangkok in 2013 - I was looking at the DVD section and I could see some adult movies in one of them promotional boxes. There was no attempt to hide the adult movies. Good old Big C. We love you. Happy Shopping readers.
