MR DIY has opened its 300th store at The Mines shopping centre in Seri Kembangan, Selangor to serve customers in the vicinity.
The new store spans 1,394sq m of floor space, featuring a wide range of 20,000 product varieties across nine departments — household, hardware, electrical, car accessories, toys, stationery, gifts, sports as well as jewellery and cosmetics.
Mr DIY Trading Sdn Bhd marketing head Andy Chin said they expect the latest store to do well.
“Apart from its strategic location, this store has a larger retail space compared to the average store size of 743sq m.
“To mark this milestone, visitors can look forward to more activities specially crafted for this store,” said Chin.
To celebrate the opening of the new store, Mr DIY gave away RM2,050 worth of cash vouchers to the first 50 customers and mystery gifts to the first 300 customers while those who spent a minimum of RM30 received a complimentary umbrella.
Additionally, three lucky customers with a minimum spend of RM50 stand a chance to participate in the upcoming Grab-All-You-Can game where they can bring home all products grabbed off the shelf within 30 seconds.
Speaking about the company’s expansion plans in Malaysia, Chin shared that it was targeting a total of 360 stores by the end of this year.
“We strive to offer our customers the convenience to shop at lower rates. While we expand our reach in the country, we are also creating job opportunities.
“Currently, there are 5,000 employees and the figure will increase to 6,000 following the upcoming store openings,” said Chin, adding that the retail chain served 110 million customers per year and aimed to achieve RM1.25bil in revenue this year.
Mr DIY also has 45 stores in Thailand and three in Brunei.
“We are targeting to enter the Indonesian market either in October or November, with the opening of 10 to 12 stores,” concluded Chin.
