Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia Opening Hour| KR1M

There were a lot of talk about Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia(KR1M) recently. It has attract many views from the Government, Media, public and opposition parties.

At this moment, Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia was run by  Mydin Mohamad Holdings Berhad and Mydin Mohamad Holdings  will be sole producer of the “1Malaysia” brand of products.

Undertaken by Mydin Mohamed Holdings Berhad, the 1,000 items on sale — which are said to be cheaper by 30 to 40 per cent compared with market prices — are going to be very attractive.

MYDIN as the operator of ‘Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia’ provides assistance in fit-out works, equipments and racking installation, supply chain management, IT support for Point of Sales (POS) system, retail and technical expertise as well as training.


In summary, Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia is a thrift store that operate in a mini market format, that sold various basic necessities at much low prices than the usual brands.

This is a good initiative as the price of every basic necessities(virtually everything due to inflation) has increase compare to minimal increase in salary income.

The inflation rate was not in proportion to the escalating high cost of living, so it would ease the burden of inflation and directly benefit the rakyat.


Our Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak introduce this smart initiative of KR1M in order for the public(Rakyat) especially to the low income citizens who stay in the urban areas, to ease the people’s burden and to  get various basic necessities at low prices.

This well in line with the slogan “Rakyat Didahulukan”(People First), which has been mooted by YAB Prime Minister himself. Najib said that as the country marched towards becoming a developed nation, the Government still ensured the people were taken care of.

It was reported that the government subsidies are up by RM10 billion in order to create and introduce Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) and the Menu Rakyat 1Malaysia concepts.

The first KR1M outlet opened at the Kelana Jaya LRT station in Petaling Jaya in June 2011. There are now six KR1M outlets and 22 more are slated to open in 2012.

According to Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, over 20 more Mydin-run KR1M stores would be opened nationwide by the end of the year and another 60 were targeted for next year.

Do take a visit to Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia to do your shopping.

I have visited Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia at Bandar Tun Razak. It was located in a very easy to access point as it was merely a walking distance from STAR LRT Station-Bandar Tun Razak

Please remember to shop wisely as NOT all items were in Low Prices! (as cheap as they are claimed to be)

  1. I am looking at the opportunity for citizens to operate their own Kedai Rakyat stores. The information on how to own and operate a Kedai Rakyat is very vague. Why dont the government offer this opportunity to any one who is interested. It looks like that the Kedai Rakyat is kept for a selcted few??

  2. Get your facts right on KR1M, Ismail tells Lim

    Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has refuted claims that a RM386mil allocation to set up 57 Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) is “too much”.

    “There are many other costs invol­ved in setting up a store. For instance, there are transportation costs.

    “It will cost about RM1.5mil to set up a store while the rest are to cover any related expenses,” Ismail Sabri said after launching an Automotive Workshop Modernisation (Atom) programme at Chai Ken Motorcycles Sdn Bhd yesterday.

    He chided Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for his remarks and for not getting his facts right.

    Lim had said that the allocation announced in Budget 2013 for KR1M was a “little too much”, adding that it added up to about RM6.7mil per store when it would only cost about RM470,000 to set up a store.

    In SUBANG JAYA, Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd said anyone could operate a KR1M store.

    Its managing director Datuk Am­eer Ali Mydin refuted allegations that his company had monopolised the KR1M franchise.

    Ameer said that at least four KR1M stores, operated by other entrepreneurs, would open its doors at several locations by the end of the year.

    “There is no monopoly by Mydin as claimed by certain politicians,” said Ameer at a press conference held in Mydin’s head office here yesterday.

    “If other entrepreneurs wish to take over any KR1M store that we are operating, they are more than welcome to do so.”

    He said Mydin was simply “helping” the Government to set up KR1M, adding that it only enjoyed a 1% to 2% profit margin from KR1M.
