A FamilyMart store in Bangkok.

BANGKOK -- The number of FamilyMart convenience stores in Thailand will double to over 2,000 within five years as the operator seeks to narrow the gap with industry leader 7-Eleven.

The chain aims to draw more customers by providing unique products and services, said Chiranun Poopat, president of Central FamilyMart, which is owned 51% by companies such as Thai retail giant Central Group and 49% by Japan's FamilyMart Uny Holdings.
