    Arson-hit 'Center One' Shopping Plaza Reopens


    UPDATE : 13 May 2011

    The Center One Shopping Plaza fully reopens after eight months of complete renovation.

    The shopping center was hit by an arson attack during violent riots in Bangkok last year.


    Ratchapol Kraijirachote, managing director of People Plaza, announced the official reopening of Center One Shopping Plaza which has been closed for 9 months after an arson attack during last year’s riots in Bangkok.

    Also present at the press conference were Bangkok Governor M.R.

    Sukhumbhand Paribatra and Managing Director of SME Bank Soros Sakornwisawa.

    Ratchapol said that the renovation costs more than 160 million baht.

    He said he wishes political rallies not to be organized in the area surrounding the Victory Monument.

    Security has been enhanced both inside and outside the shopping center.

    The freshly renovated Center One will house 350 shops, 95 percent of which are occupied by existing tenants.

    All shops will receive a 20-percent discount on the monthly rental fee during the first six months after the reopening.

    More than 30,000 customers are expected daily, which will allow the shopping center to recoup renovation costs in 4 to 5 years.

    Special activities will also be organized to boost sales and celebrate the relaunch from May 20 to 28.

    Most mall vendors are confident about Center One’s location.

    Some are still concerned about activities of the red-shirt group, especially when the one-year anniversary of bloody protest crackdown on May 19 last year is approaching.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    amazingly no-one expresses continued concern over the International Airport Closure .
