1. Description of Our Community
From the opening of its first store in 1989, Makro had swiftly became the largest retail outlet in Taiwan. It not only revolutionized the wholesale and retail markets, but also laid the foundation for the shopping habit of?one shopping, bulk purchase?for hypermarket customers. Due to the stiff competition among hypermarkets, strengthening the salability of stores and its competitiveness have been the targets of each hypermarket. Other than creating their own brands, hypermarkets bring in drugstores, hi-tech stores, jewelry stores to entice more customers. These made it easier for customers to select, and also made it to be the unique quality for each hypermarket.

We realized that we were mistaken for traffic controllers, and quickly put away our camera. We had to hide in the car to take pictures at the end.
