The partnership with Kerry Express is an important step in Circle K’s goal to respond to more consumer needs, according to the official press release.
Circle K continues to focus on developing new partnerships to create new experiences for customers and offer quality services, it said.
“We are officially introducing parcel shipping services in partnership with Kerry Express at all Circle K outlets to increase convenience for customers,” said Steven Yos, executive director of TH CVS, the company that operates Circle K convenience stores in Cambodia.
“This service allows customers to send their packages at Circle K counters. Users will enjoy the same service they would at any Kerry Express drop point, except that at Circle K the counters are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Mr Yos said.
He said that in its first year of operation in Cambodia, Circle K has opened 21 outlets, adding that 2 or 3 new outlets will open in Phnom Penh this month.
Mr Yos said TH CVS plans to open 300 Circle K outlets nationwide, cashing in on the country’s improving retail outlook.
Circle K main focus is on ready-to-eat food items, exclusive import products, and other lifestyle products.
Dickson Pang, logistics manager at Kerry Express, said the partnership expands the service offer available at Circle K stores.
“Our objective is to increase convenience for online shoppers, small and medium enterprises, and walk-in customers,” Mr Pang said.
“E-commerce is expanding fast in Cambodia, and we believe this new partnership will facilitate the shopping process,” he added.
