KUALA LUMPUR: It’s the time to shop till you drop, with massive discounts and offers nationwide thanks to the 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival and the 1Malaysia Unified Sale.
The sales, which begin today and will run until Sept 1, offer a chance for both locals and foreign tourists to get mega discounts on a variety of products and services.
Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, who pre-launched both sales yesterday, said the event was one of the biggest shopping campaigns in Malaysia.
“I was told that over 8,700 outlets will be participating in the 1Malaysia Unified Sale.
“This will be an exciting two months as participating malls and retail outlets nationwide offer the most attractive shopping deals and rewarding activities,” he said in his speech.
The 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival is one of three major shopping events in Malaysia, the other two being the 1Malaysia Grand Prix Sale in March and the 1Malaysia Year End Sale.
The 1Malaysia Unified Sale brings together the three annual sales into one central coordinated event, cutting through a wider spectrum of industrial sectors.
Both sales are jointly organised by the Tourism and Culture Ministry and the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry.
A commemorative book for Tourism Malaysia was also unveiled at the event. The book entitled Malaysia, Simply Spectacular Shopping is a collaboration between Tourism Malaysia and the Malaysia Shopping Malls Association.
