Central Chidlom Department Store is a modern, stylish, eight-storey department store that undergoes constant renovation to keep abreast with modern fashion and lifestyle trends.Central Chidlom Department store has several branches in Bangkok, but the flagship store in Chidlom is extremely popular with affluent Thais and also geared towards the expatriate shoppers who wish to buy the more expensive imported goods.
Central Chidlom Department Store is a comprehensive shopping experience where most things can be purchased, and although there are no brand-name shops like at Siam Paragon, Emporium or Central World Plaza there are departments that sell brand-name goods.
There are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops throughout the store. There is something on every floor, but situated on the top floor is a very good international food court called ‘The Loft’ offering Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Italian and Japanese food. The food is good and the area is spotlessly clean. Central Chidlom Department Store is a pure shopping experience and does not have multi-screen cinemas or other entertainment outlets.
