On Wed, June 22, Klang Valley saw the launch of the first Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia, Malaysia's very own large-scale thrift store or 1Malaysia shop.
The store located at the Kelana Jaya LRT station was launched by the Prime Minister. The shop retails 250 grocery items under the brand name “Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia” at prices 30% to 40% lower than market prices. I suppose you have to shop there to confirm the difference in pricing in comparison to prices at other stores. People who live around Kelana Jaya area would be at an advantage though the store is located near an LRT station for others to shop there.
The Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia is run by Mydin Mohamed Holding Berhad. There are plans to open more outlets. The shop operates from 7am until 11pm daily.
