After months of learning from home, 1.7 million students in Malaysia are gearing up to return to school on March 1.
Helping families get the best value from their back-to-school shopping is Mr DIY, with white school shoes being sold at only RM2.
The home improvement retailer is offering discounts of up to 40% on over 100 school essentials at its 690 stores nationwide.
The “Back To School” range includes essentials such as stationery, school bags, lunch bags and boxes, school shoes and socks, as well as protective essentials such as hand sanitiser, antibacterial wipes and face masks to ensure everyone is well protected.
Announcing the promotion was Mr DIY marketing group vice-president Andy Chin who said, “As a parent myself, I understand parents and teachers’ mixed emotions of concern and relief as schools reopen.
“We want to equip students and teachers with the right tools as they return to school, and this includes protective items such as face masks and sanitiser.
“This is the beginning of a new phase of recovery for Malaysia.
“As a home-grown brand, it is important that we support Malaysian families in the best way we can.
“Helping them get their children back to school, fully-equipped and ready to learn, without burning a hole in the family budget, is where we can make the biggest difference.”
Mr DIY aims to help Malaysians by offering quality essentials at affordable prices while ensuring every store strictly complies with the standard operating procedures set by the National Security Council and Health Ministry.
