BANGKOK (THE NATION/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - On Tuesday (Dec 24), Ms Phattra Sahawat, founder and owner of Plearn Wan Co, operator of Plearn Wan shopping village in Hua Hin and Plearn Wan Panich shopping centres at multiple locations, posted on her Facebook page that the Hua Hin shopping village would close down on Jan 31.
She thanked visitors who had supported the establishment over the last 12 years, and invited everyone to visit the place once more to celebrate the good times before it is gone forever.
A news source from Hua Hin reported that Plearn Wan Co had issued a notice to all tenants that the company decided to halt operations due to the ailing economy and losses, and would therefore end all rental contracts on Jan 31, while the rent for January would be exempt.
Plearn Wan Hua Hin is an antique-style shopping village featuring traditional foods, handicrafts, clothes, collectible items and classical architecture that depict the lifestyle of Thai people in the past.
It is located on Phetkasem Road in Hua Hin district of Prachuap Khiri Khan province.
