A Better Life

Whilst in mainland China, I had the opportunity to catch up with an old work colleague and boss from my days in the supermarket trade at Foodtown here in New Zealand. He kindly took me around several of the many stores under his aegis.










They are part of the BuBu Gao (Better Life) Company, which has over 140 stores in the Hunan and Jiangxi provinces. They have a diverse range of retail interests, including both supermarkets and hypermarkets. For those who have noticed the ubiquitous Golden Arches in the photos, yes – BuBuGao have a working relationship with McDonald’s. They are one of the few wholly Chinese owned supermarket chains operating in China.











Chairman Mao might have been gone for a while but he is omnipresent in the BuBu Gao entrance foyer.
