Thai Watsadu held a promotion this weekend and I was really surprised how quickly they have got this place up and running. One month ago it was bare racks everywhere. Today it is fully stocked and looking really good. The range of stock is not quite the same as IQ Modern Trade although it does carry a lot of nice things for the house and home. The electrical section is impressive with 50, 55 and 60 inch flat screen TVs, ovens and rings, fitted kitchen units, airconditioners, kitchen appliances etc, etc. IMHO a very welcome addition and extension to the shopping facilities in Surin.
I also heard on the grapevine that another of the big Bangkok trading concerns is intending to open a new furniture shop 'et al' along the same lines as Index Living Mall in the not too distant future. It is rumoured that this will be bigger and better than IQ Modern Trade and Thai Watsadu and maybe located somewhere near Index/Winner furniture store.
What with the new IT Mall in Petcaseim Plazza, mentioned by Alan, Surin is on the up and up. It will soon cost a lot more to live in Surin than it did before. Bugger!
