Alfamart operator to expand chain in Philippines

Indonesian retailer faces slowdown in consumer spending at home

JAKARTA -- Sumber Alfaria Trijaya, operator of Alfamart convenience stores in Indonesia, plans to add up to 200 units in the Philippines this year that will nearly double its presence there.

SAT began its Philippine business in 2014 with a 35% stake in a joint venture with SM Investments, the Philippine banking, retail and real estate conglomerate. In a press conference on Thursday, SAT President Hans Prawira said the company's concept of "minimarkets," which are smaller than traditional convenience stores and that sell staples, is untapped in the Philippines.
