JOHOR BARU: LG Electronics Malaysia plans to open another five more outlets nationwide by the year end, bringing the total number of outlets to 33 from the existing 28 outlets.
Its managing director Kim Kyu Tae said the company also planned to have at least one store-in-store (SIS) in major cities in the country to give customers first-hand experience on its products and innovations.
“Malaysia is one of the strong markets in the region with consumers with good purchasing power and we are upbeat on the country’s economy next year,’’ Kim said during the opening of LG’s eighth shop here.
He said the SIS was important as customers want to know how the company’s OLed TV and twin-wash washing machine functions.
“We are currently looking to expand our artificial intelligence (AI) features into every LG product and we have collaborated with global IT companies such as Google and Alexa for this,’’ said Kim. - By REMAR NORDIN
