Ramadan Rahmah sales to be held at 450 locations nationwide, says Armizan


PAPAR: The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry will expand the implementation of the Rahmah Sales Programme during Ramadan, covering 450 planned locations nationwide.

Its minister Datuk Armizan Mohd Ali said this noble effort aims to reduce the cost of living for the people and enable them to buy essentials at lower prices, especially during Ramadan.

He said the Ramadan Rahmah Sales Programme provides daily necessities at discounts of 10% to 30% compared to the original retail price.

"Besides the sale of dry goods, it will also include the sale of other daily necessities such as chicken, beef, fish and assorted seafood, rice and chicken eggs.

"Items needed to make kuih-muih in preparation for Hari Raya will also be sold.

"The Ramadan Rahmah sales will be launched in Putrajaya and will start immediately on the first day of Ramadan," he said at the opening of the Rahmah sales programme in Kinarut.

Armizan said his ministry is also working with the Malaysian Fisheries Development Authority (LKIM) and the Federal Agricultural Marketing Board (Fama) to stock up on produce, especially wet goods, which are sold cheaply.

He said at least two series of or Rahmah sales will be conducted in each parliamentary constituency throughout the country.

In Sabah, he said a total of 50 Ramadan Rahmah sales series will be conducted in all 25 parliamentary constituencies in the state.

The ministry will also conduct a Ramadan Bazaar programme, with details to be announced later. - Bernama
