SHENZHEN, China, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Uni Core Holdings Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: UCHC), a Hong Kong based holding company, announced that Shaanxi Prosperous Agriculture Company Limited ("Prosperous Agriculture"), one of UCHC's subsidiaries, will open three additional direct sales chain stores very soon.
As a leading advocate of agricultural resources direct sales chain model, Prosperous Agriculture is going to open three new direct sales stores in the region of Huxian and Zhouzhi County of Shaanxi Province on top of the current base of three direct sales chain stores. One of the new stores has been completely renovated, another one is being renovated, and location of the third store is being considered carefully. The management of Prosperous Agriculture confirmed that they should be able to meet the target of setting up 10 direct sales stores before the end of this year in order to continue to become the leader of agricultural resources direct sales chain of China.
Mr. Wang Fei, General Manager of Prosperous Agriculture, said, "The domestic sales of agricultural resources of China has been under a loose wholesale system with no control mechanism. Prosperous Agriculture, as a pioneer as well as a practitioner of direct sales chain, on one hand, builds and implements standards through establishing company owned direct sales stores in the Shaanxi Province and controls the main channel for China's rural market, while, on the other hand, nurtures distributors outside the Shaanxi Province to join the Prosperous Agriculture system by way of training and counseling. These distributors will be acquired upon the switch of conventional wholesale mode to direct sales chain model in order to achieve inter-regional expansion." Mr. Wang further said, "Prosperous Agriculture will complete the target of establishing 10 direct sales stores, coaching 10 distributors outside the province and assisting the opening of 30 direct sales stores outside the province by this year end. By then, the total sales turnover of Prosperous Agriculture may reach RMB15 million, becoming the largest agricultural resources retailer."
"We are confident that, through the self-establishment of industry standards, the rapid expansion via alliances, and the national coverage by way of counseling and acquisition, Prosperous Agriculture shall become the 'Home Depot' of China's rural market with 2 to 3 years of efforts, with 200 direct sales stores in the whole of China and a sales turnover exceeding RMB200 million," said Mr. Wang Fei with great excitement.
