1Malaysia Mall Kelana Jaya
Today our Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak launched the opening of the first ‘Kedai Rakyat’ 1Malaysia tomorrow at Kelana Jaya LRT Station in Kelana Jaya. The mall is operated by Mydin Mohamed Holdings Berhad running on a minimart concept. According to billylks, all goods with white labels were repackaged and distributed by Juta Bersih Sdn Bhd.
Operated by Mydin Mohamed Holdings, the shop will act as the medium for the government to control prices and lessen the monopolisation of products which have long been dominated by multinational manufacturers.
“Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia” will serve the same consumer segment as hypermarkets do but with emphasis on consumers with basic essential needs. “The “Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia, I understand,. will not only provide various basic necessities at low prices compared with other hypermarkets but will act as a platform for the development of small-and-medium entrepreneurs and give emphasis to products manufactured by them,” Najib said at the opening of the maiden shop at the Kelana Jaya LRT station here today.
“Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia” is part of the 1Malaysia initiative, advocated by Najib in line with the 1Malaysia slogan of “People First, Performance Now”.
