Following the opening of Lotus’s Kluang and
Lotus’s Muar last October, Lotuss Stores Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Lotus’s Malaysia)
today launched its third store in Melaka. The single level, 1,000 square meter Lotus’s
Mart Duyong is located within the residential area of Taman Desa Duyong.
With the addition of Lotus’s Mart Duyong, the
retailer now operates a total of 69 stores across Peninsular Malaysia.
Officiating the grand opening of Lotus’s Mart
Duyong today was Yang Berhormat Datuk Mohd Noor Helmy Abdul Halem, State Assemblymen
of Duyong, Melaka, accompanied by Yang Berbahagia Datuk Mohd Yusof Abu Bakar,
Chief Executive Officer of Melaka Corporation (MCORP), Jayakumar Govindan, Central
2 Region Store Director of Lotus’s Malaysia and other members of MCORP and
Lotus’s Malaysia leadership team.
During the store walk, Lotus’s Malaysia
Central 2 Region Store Director, Jayakumar Govindan said, “Although Lotus’s
Mart Duyong is smaller in size compared to the two existing hypermarkets in
Melaka, we see its potential in creating an ecosystem that is beneficial,
bringing convenience to both residents and businesses within and nearby this
“To give our Duyong customers the opportunity
to enjoy the many promotions on offer, the store will extend its operating
hours to 12.00am from today until 13 January 2024. Following that, the store
will operate as usual from 8.00am until 10.00pm”.
Despite its smaller build up, Lotus’s Mart
Duyong offers customers and business owners a selection of up to 5,000 SKUs ranging
from fresh produce, frozen, grocery, household products and bakery including
many of its Lotus’s Own Brand favourites.
At the opening, customers were quick to grab
first day deals like watermelon and potatoes at 0.99 sen per kilogramme. Until
13 January, customers will be treated with a free breakfast, RM5 cash vouchers
in the Lotus’s Malaysia App for newly registered My Lotus’s members and goodie
bags worth more than RM10 with a minimum spend of RM50.
In doing what is best for the community and
the environment, Lotus’s introduces its #KitakanJiran food surplus programme into
Duyong. With the help of its long-time charity partner, Kechara Soup Kitchen,
all safe and edible but unsold food products like vegetables, fruits and bakery
items will be redistributed to various vulnerable groups in Melaka. Lotus’s
Malaysia’s food surplus programme to date has successfully provided over
120,000 families with access to nutrition.
