Wong believed that Bargain Basement is not only a platform that serves as a form of aid to the community, especially in times of great economic challenges, but also a good source of purpose for the environment. 

She said: “Our stores are also a sustainable form of aid to the environment as we inculcate the culture of recycling, reusing, and in many cases, repairing the items that we receive.”

The flagship outlet is located in IOI City Mall, Putrajaya and the second branch was opened in IOI Mall, Puchong. In addition, two branches are located in the Sungai Long and Kampar campuses of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), which are operated by UTAR students.
