A market for the community
KIP Marts are not hypermarkets, superstores or departmental stores. It has the comfort and convenience of a modern hypermarket with a full range of goods for families.
The prices at Kip Mart are attractive because it is operated by owners who are either wholesalers or the main supplier of their produces, products or goods. KIP Mart has been branded as a community mart as it is close to the communities.
KIP Mart arranges and organises programmes, performances, events with the residents from the communities and hold them in KIP Mart. Thus, KIP Mart turns into a platform for communal gathering and socialising, besides being a place where customers can shop for their needs.
The first KIP Mart opened in August 2002 in Masai Johor. Since then, KIP Mart has become a household name in Johor with four outlets located in Masai, Tampoi, Kota Tinggi and Segamat.
With its success down south, KIP Mart feels it is the right time to expand its business in, Malacca and Negri Sembilan.
KIP Mart Melaka and Senawang are poised to open for business in early 2013. Construction work for both KIP Mart outlets has just started. Beyond that, KIP Mart will be venturing into Selangor and Pahang in the near future.
Suitable locations have been identified for KIP Mart outlets in Kuantan, Pahang and Cyberjaya in Selangor respectively.
The KIP Group is actively searching for other suitable areas to open more KIP Mart stores throughout Malaysia.
Interested landowners or agents with suitable land can call Sam Khoo at 012-389 9739 for more information.
