The new BLT at Lianyang Plaza has an area of 2,300 square meters and it offers featured imported products, including organic food, health food, wine, and western-style cooking materials. With simple interior decorations, BLT mainly targets young white collars and most of its products are imported from other Asian countries.

A representative in charge of the business affairs of China Resources Vanguard revealed that if there are proper opportunities, the company will accelerate the expansion of its market share by acquisitions. It will locate its new sites at the most flourishing and high-end shopping malls to serve people like foreigners with high incomes and Chinese with experiences of living abroad.
