HOME improvement retailer Mr D.I.Y. Group (M) Bhd celebrated the grand opening of 46 MR. D.I.Y., MR. Toy, and MR. Dollar stores nationwide.
Some 50,500 freebies worth more than RM1.5mil were up for grabs throughout a three-day weekend event at the new stores in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Johor, Perak, Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan, Negri Sembilan, Pahang and Sarawak.
This year has seen Mr D.I.Y. Group expanding its footprint across the country while stepping up efforts to deliver on its promise of “Always Low Prices”.
This has further provided employment opportunity for some 700 Malaysians at the 32 MR. D.I.Y., seven MR. Toy and seven MR. Dollar stores.
To date, Mr D.I.Y. Group owns and operates more than 700 stores nationwide.
Mr D.I.Y. group marketing vice-president Andy Chin said, “Our grand opening events in the past have demonstrated how much Malaysians welcome a good bargain, which in turn has spurred us to fast-track our expansion plans.
“Opening these 46 new stores just ahead of the year-end festivities and back-to-school period will allow more Malaysians to enjoy
quality products without straining their wallets.”
He added that customers only had to make a minimum purchase of RM30 in a single transaction to enjoy a wide range of free gifts exclusive to each of its three brands.
The gifts -– limited to the first 400 redemptions daily at the 46 participating stores -– include umbrellas and pillows at MR. D.I.Y.; dinosaur plush toys, doctor and kitchen pretend play toy sets at MR. Toy; and Milo (3-in-1) and Koko Krunch (170g) at MR. Dollar.
