Naim brings one of Malaysia’s largest hypermart operators to Bintulu


KUCHING: Naim Group of Companies (Naim) recently inked a tenancy agreement with Econsave Cash and Carry for its first hypermart branch in Bintulu.

The hypermarket is to be sited at a strategic location within Bintulu Paragon and with a size of more than 40,000 square feet (sq ft), the hypermart once operational, will be the largest one in Bintulu.

Econsave has the largest and most extensive network of branches in all main towns in Selangor, unmatched by any other supermarket/hypermarket operators. Econsave has now emerged as one of Malaysia’s top three retailers operating a chain of hypermarkets nationwide.

Naim’s Head of Property, Bintulu region, Laik Heng Juan said the hypermart will add value in making Bintulu Paragon the preferred address for live, work and play experience.

“The hypermart will definitely add value in making Bintulu Paragon a vibrant integrated development. This in turn, will boost the investment potential for its development components, benefitting our property purchaser.

“We would like to welcome Econsave to the Bintulu Paragon family!” Laik remarked.

Econsave’s executive director, Lai Sia Ling expressed his excitement in establishing the retail chain’s first branch in Bintulu.

“ We expect our hypermart to commence operations in the third quarter of 2016. With our slogan ‘Compare Our Prices’, Econsave is committed to providing more value to our customers with our ‘Every Day Low Price’ practice. This practice has attracted increasingly more loyal customers to its outlets, making us one of the top three retailers in Malaysia.

“We believe that Bintulu Paragon, with its strategic location and vibrant components, is the best platform for us to help transform Bintulu’s retail scene,” Lai said.
