The largest MYDIN Wholesale Hypermarket (Pasar Raya Besar MYDIN) in the country opened for business in the new township of Bandar Meru Raya, Ipoh, yesterday morning. It marks the company’s first hypermarket in the state of Perak, with two more coming soon in Manjoi and Manjung.
Built at a cost of RM150 million, this disabled-friendly MYDIN Wholesale Hypermarket is located along the Jelapang-Chemor trunk road, strategically opposite the Home Affairs Ministry Complex (Kompleks KDN) and the soon-to-be-opened Bandar Meru Raya Express Bus Terminal, which would replace the current one in Medan Gopeng, rumoured to be this June.
Covering a retail floor area of 791,000 square feet, it boasts a large hypermarket carrying an extensive range of products, Rasa Village Food Court and 56 shop lots over three levels. MYDIN Wholesale Hypermarket provides more than a no-frills shopping experience that we associate hypermarkets with.
On opening morning when I visited, most tenants were still not ready for business yet, like Marry Brown, Ole Ole Superbowl and My Kara Good Time Family Amusement, just to name a few. Give them a month or two and the whole building would be fully in operation. Anyway, I have plenty of photos to share, and the complete list of tenants at the end of this post. Enjoy!
