The Eco-Friendly Corner has a refill station for personal products and sustainably sourced products.

Besides the physical retail stores, shoppers can buy online through GrabFood and GrabMart, a third-party last mile provider. They can also order through Line, a social media channel popular in Thailand. Retailers in Asia are attracting shoppers back to stores through the use of dine-in spaces and unique concepts. Expect to see more innovation in this space as retailers create more differentiating concepts for small stores.
