    On October 29, 2021, the "Platinum VIP Special Thanksgiving Party" was held as scheduled by China Grand Nangang Store in the Shopping Center (hereinafter referred to as the China Grand). In just a dozen hours, the total sales volume reached RMB 145 million, representing an increase of 3% year-on-year as well as a hard-won and unexpected victory for the China Grand.

    The COVID-19 epidemic has inflicted heavy losses to the global retail industry. Cuts in Suppliers’ production, changes in consumption habits, and the fierce competitions have forced physical businesses to usher evolution under condition of endurance and to blaze new trails. Be it online or offline businesses, the underlying logic for innovations is consistent, that is to keep up with changes in the market and consumer demand, and adapt measures to local condition. As to the China Grand Nangang Store, Platinum Sale embodied the transformation in the values, operational efficiency, innovative thinking and strategic vision of the China Grand Group.

    Improve efficiency, upfront business planning, seize opportunities and take initiatives

    The Platinum Sale was postponed from the middle of the month to the end of the month due to the Harbin pandemic. The China Grand was facing great challenges, such as the underestimated number of customers, the intensified competition in the retail industry, and the year-on-year decrease of 140,000 pieces of goods. In view of the epidemic situation, the China Grand Nangang Store adjusted its plan and resolutely seized the opportunity of the iconic event of "Platinum Sale" to attract customers and drive growth. As proved in the time of COVID-19 outbreak, customer loyalty is the foundation of future survival. As the trump card of the China Grand, the membership system has uplifted us to make wiser judgments, build up confidence and resist risks.

    To seize the opportunities and take initiatives, China Grand needs to improve efficiency and early business layout. As early as late July, all employees and suppliers of China Grand Nangang Store had started to prepare for the “Platinum Sale” ahead of schedule. Leveraging on more than ten years of accurate survey data on member loyalty and populations, the Nangang Store boldly adjusted its marketing plan to reduce the costs of performances, venues, and labor in the mall. It upgraded the creativity of the themes and exhibitions while reducing expenses and costs. At the same time, more materials and labors will be invested to achieve a more refined shopping experience than in previous years, and to accurately meet the shopping needs of customers. The highlight of this year’s "Platinum Sale" is the refined shopping experience through recommending suitable products to consumers more accurately and friendly and providing them with a smooth purchase process and value-added services.

    Although great efforts have been made to reduce costs, the China Grand Nangang Store has inherited  the conventions to create original IP. It set the theme of "Smiles-collecting Cute Monsters" for this year's "Platinum Sale". Five amusing characters from Monster Planet are dispatched to create fancy, cute, and colorful internet-famous spaces across the city.
