(The Star) Special discounts offered at new supermarket in Ipoh

Thousands of people made their way to the opening of the new Econsave supermarket at Jelapang SQ in Ipoh last weekend.

In conjunction with the opening, Econsave operation manager Zamzuri Mansor said they were offering special discounts on food and groceries sold.

“We are excited to offer low and competitive prices to our customers.

“We know that many people are tightening their belts because of the rising cost of living here, so we hope that these special discounts can help relieve the burden of the people in one way or another,” he told reporters at the supermarket on Sunday.

Zamzuri also revealed that two more Econsave branches are set to open in Chemor and Seri Iskandar later this year.

“Apart from offering competitive prices, our new Econsave branches will be able to offer job opportunities to as many as 120 people per branch,” he said.

Located strategically at the commercial hub in Jelapang SQ, a project developed by Team Keris Bhd (TKB), the supermarket here is set to serve over 250,000 residents living in western Ipoh, such as Jelapang, Silibin, Meru, First Garden and Buntong.

Also present at the opening, TKB director Michael Tan said Jelapang SQ is poised to be the most vibrant commercial centre in the area as it is located near the Ipoh-Lumut Highway and Jalan Jelapang.

“Apart from Econsave, more large businesses are set to open their doors to the public this month, like Starbucks and Oldtown White Coffee, as well as a renowned furniture mall.

“We are not the sort of developers who would just build and lease our retail space to businesses, as we strive to work with them and ensure that they can succeed in their ventures here through various activities and promotions,” he said.

Tan also said the shoplots in Jelapang SQ are currently being rented out at specially discounted rates.

“For example, the original price of a shoplot may be RM800,000, but during this promotional period, we are offering it at only RM599,000.

“Our cheapest shoplot is priced at RM138,000. So, we want to encourage retailers and investors not to miss out on the chance to secure a shoplot here,” he said.
