Last Monday, I was invited to the grand inauguration of Lulu Hypermarket in 1 Shamelin Mall. Lulu Group, one of the largest retail operators in the Middle East & North African (MENA) region has further consolidated its presence in the Far East by opening its second hypermarket in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. If you are around that area, you should go and check out some of the cheap bargains offered by Lulu Hypermarket!

YB Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution bin Ismail, Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs of
Malaysia officially inaugurated the Hypermarket in the presence of Ambassadors of various countries, prominent local businessmen and other dignitaries.

The new Hypermarket which is also Lulu’s 174th globally is strategically located at 1 Shamelin Mall in the Cheras district of capital Kuala Lumpur. The sprawling 80,000 square feet hypermarket has been designed using the latest retail space concepts and most modern technology for ease of shopping and will serve the residents of Cheras and its nearby areas for their daily shopping needs.

After the inauguration, Trade Minister and other dignitaries were led on a guided tour of the hypermarket by Yusuff Ali, Chairman of Lulu Group who briefed them about the various sections, unique features and amenities of the latest hypermarket.

The hypermarket has dedicated sections for grocery, dairy products, fish and seafood, fruit and
vegetables, meat and poultry, dry goods, fashion garments, electronics, lT, stationery, sports, footwear, luggage among others.

Just look at the crowd busy shopping at Lulu Hypermarket on the first day of its opening.

A major highlight of the newly opened store is that it has an exclusive store-in-store for all “free from” food range that offer extensive imported line of Gluten-free, Organic, Sugar free. no-additives, nopreservatives and other specialty food from around the world. As always Lulu hypermarket provides the widest range of quality and value-for-money products all under one roof.
