HOMEGROWN retailer MR D.I.Y. Group (M) Bhd has emerged winner at this year’s World Branding Awards.
Walking away with the coveted national tier Brand of the Year in Retail – Home Improvement Category 2020-2021 title, this marks the first time a home improvement retailer has won the award for three consecutive years.
“What a way to end the year with such amazing news,” said
MR D.I.Y. Group marketing vice-president Andy Chin. “2020 has been a challenging yet rewarding year for all of us at MR D.I.Y.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to win this prestigious award for the third time in a row.
“This year’s win is testament to our employees’ unwavering commitment, hard work and dedication towards our vision of becoming market leader in the home improvement retail industry,” he added.
Fresh from its inclusion in the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index, the group plans to add more than 200 MR D.I.Y., MR. TOY and MR. DOLLAR stores nationwide in 2021.
While other companies were cutting jobs at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, MR D.I.Y. held a recruitment campaign in June, offering 1,000 positions to fresh graduates, retrenched workers, people with disabilities and the unemployed older generation.
The group has also been instrumental in supporting national Covid-19 efforts through its ongoing Stay Safe, Malaysia! initiative.
It has donated over RM1.1mil worth of protective gear to frontliners and communities nationwide, further demonstrating its commitment to better serve the people.
“Following the online public voting conducted by the World Branding Forum, winning this award is also proof of the people’s confidence in MR D.I.Y,” said Chin.
“We cannot thank our customers enough. These are trying times where many households are concerned about their finances.
“I want to take this opportunity to tell everyone that MR D.I.Y. is here for you.
“As a Malaysian brand for Malaysians, we are committed to continuously bringing more value and convenience to our customers nationwide, in line with our motto of ‘Always Low Prices’,” he added.
