Mr. Chakkit Chatupanyachotikul, Head of Marketing, Public Relations & CSV of Central Food Retail under Central Retail, stated that the gift market and gift products are expected to continue growing steadily. This growth is anticipated both globally and specifically in Thailand. This is driven by several positive factors across various aspects of the business, in line with the research findings of Kasikorn Research Centre, which predicts that retail sales will expand by about 4-5% in 2024. Additionally, consumer preferences have become increasingly diverse. As Thailand's leader in the gift market, Tops aims to meet the highest customer expectations, preparing to welcome the season of happiness and celebrations. It invites customers to share happiness and blessings with the 'Tops of Happiness 2024' campaign, offering a premium selection of over 100 hamper options, catering to various price ranges and sizes, covering all needs and customer lifestyles.
Mr. Chakkit further noted that Tops' customer statistics from the past year showed that the majority of customers are female, accounting for up to 71%, and mostly, fall in the age group of 35-54 years. More than 44% of all customers hold corporate jobs. Different customer groups exhibit varying shopping behaviours, with most focusing on beautiful designs to present a positive image, as well as value-for-money prices and promotions to aid their purchase decisions. This year, Tops designed gift baskets based on consumer insights through the concept of 'Discover your Universe of Happiness,' delivering exceptional offerings to loved ones during this joyful time.
Highlights of the hampers include:
- Exclusive & Imported Hampers: filled with quality imported products from around the world, such as chocolate brands like Guylian and Lyndor, and premium gift baskets from the UK, like Marks & Spencer, offering a wide range of delectable snacks and gourmet food products.
- Snacker Hampers: Featuring perennial favourite snacks and sweets from all corners of the globe, packaged in colourful and delightful sets to satisfy all palates.
- Farmers' Market Hampers: showcasing locally sourced products, community-famous items, and agricultural products from all regions of Thailand, carefully selected for their freshness, unique taste, safety, and contribution to Thai farmers' income, fostering sustainability in all dimensions.
- Fresh Fruit Hampers: a selection of premium-grade fruits imported from around the world, presented in beautifully designed baskets at great prices, ensuring quality and freshness.
- Doitung Healthy Living Hampers: suitable for health-conscious customers, offering a range of consumer and lifestyle products as well as eco-friendly items that cater to community and environmental well-being.
In addition to these offers, Tops has prepared special menus for the festive season, such as the Baked Butterball Turkey and Sloane's Beef Wellington, expertly crafted by chefs from Tops EATERY. These dishes complement an array of bakery items, including festive gingerbread houses and chocolate-raspberry gingerbread house cakes from The Baker, along with a gift set designed to enhance the joy of this holiday season.
"Tops continues to be committed to delivering discoveries and happiness in everyday life, guided by the concept of 'EveryDay DISCOVERY.' We believe that the Tops of Happiness 2024 campaign will contribute to sharing happiness from givers to receivers and stimulate domestic consumption during the New Year festival, aiming for a sales growth of 10% compared to the previous year," Mr. Chakkit concluded.
