It need to be known at the outset that the hypermarket is solely for the benefit of Kota Damansara residents as there are other supermarkets in Damansara Perdana along the LDP Highway catering for other areas. These supermarkets cater for a wider clientele as they are along the main roads unlike the proposed one in Kota Damansara, which is mainly for the local residents.

I didnt know Damansara Perdana had supermarkets that could cater to Kota Damansara residents

(I think he really meant to say Mutiara Damansara, which is another address by another developer altogether)

Tesco to pay RM525,000 in land premium to state govt


THE state government has ordered Tesco Xtra to pay RM525,000 in land premium for building an alternative road on state land in Taman Sembilang in Seberang Jaya, Butterworth.

State Public Works, Utilities and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng said the imposition of the premium was part of the land procedures on anyone planning to use state land for development or other purposes.

He said apart from the land premium, the hypermarket had also been asked to build 200 parking lots to replace the parking lots near the Seberang Jaya expo site that had been taken up for the project.

“The company has three months to pay up the premium or the approval which has been given to them to build the access road will expire.

“They will have to re-submit new application for approval if they fail to meet the deadline,” he told reporters after launching a Hari Raya balik kampung road safety campaign at the Penang bridge toll plaza.

Lim said the state had approved the construction of the alternative road during last Monday’s state executive council meeting, adding that the alternative road would be given 30 years’ leasehold.

He said the state government was giving 50% discount on the land premium for the project as it was meant for the benefit of the people.

“We believe that the premium is reasonable. In fact, the hypermarket management did not submit any application to build the road. That was the reason why a stop work order was issued on the project,” he added.

Lim said the project consultant was immediately asked to submit the necessary applications to the Central Seberang Prai Land Office which they did.

“The State Land Committee approved the application last week and we endorsed it at the state executive council meeting on Monday,” he said.

The project became controversial when residents in Taman Sembilang claimed that it was stopped by the state government.

They said the residential area would become congested when the hypermarket was open for business this Friday as there was only one road to enter and exit Taman Sembilang.

The alternative road will divert traffic through the expo site parking lots to the Projek Lebuh Raya Utara-Selatan (Plus) Highway near the Subaidah restaurant.

Gedung kedua terbesar Tesco Extra



KEKUKUHAN pasaran di Malaysia menyakinkan Tesco Stores (M) Sdn Bhd (Tesco) mengembangkan perniagaan dengan membuka sebuah lagi pasar raya besar Tesco Extra di Seberang Jaya, Pulau Pinang, semalam.

Ia pasar raya Tesco Extra kedua terbesar di negara ini selepas Plentong, Johor, menjadikannya premis kelapan dibuka selepas pengambilalihan daripada Makro Cash & Carry (Makro).

Ketua Pegawai Operasinya, David Hobbs, berkata Tesco Extra terbaru ini direka bentuk dengan konsep memenuhi keperluan pelanggan sama ada peniaga mahupun keluarga atau individu di bawah satu bumbung yang memasarkan pelbagai barangan, termasuk 2,000 produk industri kecil dan sederhana (IKS).

“Pembukaan Tesco Extra ini pasti menggembirakan peniaga kecil kerana mereka boleh membeli produk secara pukal pada harga istimewa dan individu juga boleh berbuat demikian.

“Tesco Extra akan terus komited dan sentiasa memberi nilai terbaik untuk pelanggan walaupun negara sedang dilanda inflasi pada masa kini,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media sempena pembukaan Tesco Extra di Seberang Jaya itu. Hadir sama, Pengarah Peruncitan, Bill O`Neill dan Pengurus Besar pasar raya besar itu, N Segar.

Tesco Extra Seberang Jaya mempunyai 15,000 meter persegi ruang niaga yang dibina semula daripada bangunan asal membabitkan kos RM100 juta.

David berkata, pasar raya besar berkenaan bakal menjadi pilihan membeli-belah di Seberang Prai kerana mempunyai banyak produk dan khidmat menarik kepada pelanggan.

Menurutnya, pihaknya turut menyediakan ruang permainan kanak-kanak, lebih 200 gerai di medan selera dan restoran serta pelbagai kelainan kios dikenali Bazar Rakyat.

Katanya, antara kelebihan Tesco Extra termasuk saiz pek barangan lebih besar, lebih banyak kaunter, 1,250 ruang letak kereta termasuk empat untuk orang kurang upaya (OKU) dan 24 untuk ibu bapa dan bayi.

Tesco opens in Seberang Jaya


TESCO Stores (M) Sdn Bhd has soft-laun-ched its eighth Tesco Extra store in Sebe-rang Jaya upon receiving approval from the authorities to construct a RM3.6mil slip road.

Seberang Prai Municipal Council president Farizan Darus said the Public Works Depart-ment (PWD) recently gave its consent for the stretch to be built between the RM100mil hypermarket in Persiaran Sembilang and the North-South Expressway.

“Tesco Stores has been allowed to resume construction work on the road on the side near the hypermarket for the time being.

“It can only connect the road to the expressway in mid-October as PLUS Expressways Bhd feared that it may affect traffic flow on the highway, especially during the Hari Raya holidays,” he said on Thursday.

Farizan said the Penang Land Committee had last Friday approved an application by Tesco Stores to use a 1,173 sq m plot of state land (presently used as a car parking lot within the Seberang Jaya expo site) to build an alternative road.

He said the state executive council, which met on Monday, had endorsed the company’s application by requesting it to pay RM525,000 in land premium for building the alternative road on state land.

Farizan added that the company was also told to rebuild 200 parking lots within the vicinity to re-place the ex-po’s parking lots.

At a separate event later, Tesco Malaysia chief operating officer David Hobbs said the new store was the last of eight former Makro Cash & Carry stores that the company had taken over and redesigned since last year.

“Tesco Extra Seberang Jaya, with 15,000 sq m of mall space, is so far the biggest among our 26 stores in the country. There are also 125 mall tenants occupying the food court, bazaar and those in pushcarts here,” he told a press conference at the hypermarket.

pCarrefour road trip to spread Ramadan cheer
Rizalman Hammim
THE month of Ramadan is a time of giving and sharing.


READY TO GO: Carrefour Batu Pahat human resources manager Shamsul Anhar Baharuddin (fifth from left) presenting contributions to Senggarang assemblyman Jaafar Hashim to be distributed in his constituency.

HERE COME THE GOODIES: Senggarang state assemblyman Jaafar Hashim presenting contributions to one of the poor families on his turf.
Hence, a lot of individuals and corporations are taking advantage of this special month to organise charity events and make contributions to the poor and needy.

One such corporation is Carrefour, which recently organised a charity convoy to contribute food and other supplies to 24 underprivileged families in four areas in Batu Pahat -- Parit Raja, Rengit, Senggarang and Semerah.

Six families from each area, consisting of the disabled, poor and single mothers, were identified with the help of the Batu Pahat welfare office.


Led by Carrefour Batu Pahat human resource manager Shamsul Anhar Baharuddin and store manager N. Arumugam, the 14-vehicle convoy began its journey from the Carrefour hypermarket in Taman Flora.

Tagging along to help give away the contributions were Rengit state assemblyman Ayub Jamil and Senggarang state assemblyman Jaafar Hashim.

"The programme is part of Carrefour's efforts to help the less fortunate living around the areas where we operate.

"We hope the contributions will help them during the fasting month, as well as the upcoming Hari Raya," said Shamsul Anhar.

It was the first time Carrefour had organised such an event and the hypermarket plans to make it an annual event.

"This is also part of our corporate social responsibility programme involving our staff."

Jaafar commended the event as it would help lessen the burden of poor families, especially in their preparations for Hari Raya.

"I hope more corporations will follow in Carrefour's footsteps and make their own contributions to help the poor and unfortunate," said Jaafar.

Ayub hoped that for next year, Carrefour would identify more eligible families to receive the contributions.

"Such activities are very important to create a more caring society in Malaysia.

"I hope Carrefour will continue its efforts in helping the needy," said Ayub.

Among the recipients of the contribution was single mother Yah Md Som.

"I am thankful to Carrefour for their generosity.

"This contribution is a big help for me and my family and will definitely help make this Hari Raya a little more joyful," said Yah.

Besides hampers of food items and other daily necessities, each family also received a cash contribution.

STREETS MAIL: Hypermarkets should be allowed to operate till midnight
Eashvaralingam, President, PJ Residents' Association

THIS is in further reference to the directive by the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry urging the local councils to ensure that hypermarkets do not operate beyond 10pm.

The PJ Residents' Association did an informal survey with 100 residents in PJ. About 81 per cent of them are in favour of hypermarkets and supermarkets operating until midnight for their convenience.

Most of them work shifts and many return late from work. The prices at these place are much lower compared to the sundry shops; moreover, the goods and products sold in the sundry shops are limited.

We are of the opinion that the authorites should consider the views of the public. There is very little chance of the sundry shops' businesses be ing affected since almost all of them close by 8pm.


Instead, the association would like to call on the local councils to come down hard on the entertainment outlets that operate until the early hours of the morning. Pubs, discos, video arcades, night clubs, massage parlours are operating beyond the stipulated time.

Many of these outlets are patronised by the under-aged. This causes family and social problems .

School children are also lured into these places. These places do not provide essential services to the public. It is these business premises that ought to be montiored by the local councils.

The question here is: why are the authorites so lenient on these outlets?

The association would like to urge the enforcement division of local councils to view this matter and take appropriate measures to put matters in order.

We would like to call on the the Domestic Trade and Consumers Affairs Ministry to re-consider extending the operation hours of the hypermarkets. The needs and convenience of the public should be given priority.

Malaysia proposes review of foreign hypermart rules
By Vasantha Ganesan Published: 2008/10/21
BusinessTimes

THE Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs is proposing that guidelines governing the expansion of foreign hypermarkets in Malaysia be reviewed as the business environment has changed over the years.

"Some of the conditions that were there during the time when the Cabinet discussed and issued the guidelines (several years ago) has now changed," Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad said, adding that the ministry will prepare a paper on the matter to be discussed in Cabinet.

Speaking to reporters at "Deepavali with Carrefour" in Subang, Selangor, yesterday, he said hypermarkets like Carrefour, Giant and Tesco have had an impact on prices, spending, employment and investment in the country.

"As far as the Cabinet is concerned, there is a great deal of interest and support for the presence of hypermarkets," Shahrir said.

He said based on the ratio of hypermarket to population, "theoretically, there is no need for any more hypermarkets", but there continues to be interest by foreign hypermarkets to invest and open new outlets.

The ministry, since 2001, has introduced several guidelines to control the expansion of foreign hypermarkets and protect mom-and-pop stores.

The most stringent rule was a five-year freeze beginning January 2004 on openings in Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya in Selangor, Penang and Johor Baru. It is unclear whether this ban is still in force.

Other rulings include the application for building a hypermarket be submitted two years in advance and before the land is purchased. The government also requires that an impact study be done in a 3.5km radius from the identified location of a hypermarket.

These rules were incorporated into the Guidelines on Foreign Participation in the Distributive Trade Services 2004.

In his speech, Shahrir said the fall in global crude oil prices, which has also seen a decline in prices of some commodities and fuel pump, should see the prices of goods on the shelves come down in the next four to five months.

He said there will be an announcement on the price reduction for one food item this Friday, but declined to elaborate.

RM350mil detention centre in Sungai udang


MALACCA: The Prisons Department’s RM350mil Detention Centre in Sungai Udang will be a catalyst for growth in the area when completed in early 2010.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the project covered 68ha and would be able to accommodate 2,000 detainees and housing for 2,500 personnel and their families.

“Once completed, the centre will be used to detain suspects awaiting trial at the Sessions and High Court throughout the country,’’ he told reporters after visiting the project site here recently.


Checking: Mohd Ali Rustam said detention centre will spur development in the area

About 40% of the project launched in November 2006 had been completed.

Mohd Ali said the centre would help spur development in the Sungai Udang area, which is currently home to the army’s Terendak Camp.

He noted that Sungai Udang had seen rapid development over the last few years following the opening of the Sungai Udang - Ayer Keroh-Selandar Highway, popularly known as the SS highway.

“There are plans to set up a Tesco hypermarket and an emporium halal hub in Paya Rumput,” he said.

GIANT OPENS ITS 108TH STORE IN TAWAU

TAWAU, Oct 23 (Bernama) -- Hypermarket chain, Giant, which is owned by GCH Retail (M) Sdn Bhd, today opened its 108th store in Tawau.

Hypermarkets to take lead in reducing prices


IT IS going to be easier on the pockets for Malaysians from as early as next week.

After a barrage of hard-hitting news caused by spiralling fuel prices, price tags are coming down at hypermarkets.

This will be the first time that prices of consumer goods are being reduced, after the drastic increase in fuel prices in June.

Since then, pump prices have tumbled from RM2.70 to RM2.30 (RON 97 petrol).

Hypermarkets are making preparations to reduce prices of canned and fresh food, and clothing.

A major hypermarket chain proprietor estimates that his prices will drop from 15% to 30%.

And there will be more good news at the pumps - petrol prices are likely to come down by 15 sen.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Ra**zak said consumers could look forward to better times.

Pasar raya Giant turun harga 1,200 barangan



KUALA LUMPUR: Sebanyak 1,200 barangan terdiri pelbagai produk makanan dan barang keperluan harian di Pasar Raya Giant Bandar Kinrara Puchong, diturunkan harganya sehingga 30 peratus bermula semalam sempena Kempen Penurunan Harga Barang.

Pelancaran kempen berkenaan dirasmikan Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri Dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna (KPDNHEP), Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad.

Menurutnya, pelancaran itu baru fasa pertama dalam melaksanakan kempen ini sebelum diadakan dengan lebih menyeluruh di semua pasar raya besar seperti Carrefour, Tesco, Mydin dan Jaya Jusco di seluruh negara.

Oleh itu, Shahrir berkata, proses penurunan harga harus diberi galakan supaya pengguna mendapat manfaat dengan cepat.

“Jalinan kerjasama antara semua pihak perlu dalam merealisasikan usaha ini secara menyeluruh,” katanya ketika berucap pada majlis pelancaran kempen itu di Pasar Raya Giant Bandar Kinrara, semalam.

Dalam pada itu, Shahrir berkata, pengguna juga perlu berbelanja secara berhemah dan hanya membeli barangan keperluan yang penting saja untuk mengelakkan inflasi.

Kementerian juga, katanya akan mengadakan pertemuan khas dengan persatuan pengguna, syarikat pengeluar, pemborong dan pembekal untuk mengadakan perbahasan serta perbincangan bagi bersama-sama menyahut seruan kerajaan dalam menurunkan harga barangan.

Tesco tawar diskaun

Oleh FAIZAL NAZARUDDIN
faizal.nazaruddin@kosmo.com.my



KAKITANGAN TESCO, Zubaidah Abdullah (kiri) menimbang ikan yang dibeli pelanggan pada pelancaran kempen potongan harga di TESCO Damansara Mutiara semalam.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PETALING JAYA - Pasar raya besar Tesco semalam melancarkan kempen penurunan harga sehingga 40 peratus terhadap 60 barangan keperluan dengan membabitkan peruntukan RM25 juta.

Menurut Ketua Pegawai Operasi Tesco, David Hobbs, potongan harga istimewa itu akan berlangsung selama tiga bulan dan pihaknya akan membuat penilaian semula harga tersebut sama ada diturunkan lagi atau sebaliknya.

"Kami memberi tumpuan pada barangan isi rumah kerana berdasarkan kajian kami, kebanyakan pelanggan membeli barangan seperti beras, daging, ayam, makanan tin dan lain-lain dengan banyak.

"Selain itu, setiap minggu kami akan memperkenalkan harga barangan baru yang lebih murah dan membuat promosi terhadap 800 barangan pada harga istimewa,'' katanya pada sidang media selepas majlis pelancaran itu di Tesco Mutiara Damansara di sini semalam.

Majlis pelancaran itu disempurnakan oleh Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna, Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad.

Tambah Hobbs, Tesco kini mempunyai 26 cawangan di seluruh negara dan kini dalam perancangan membina pusat pengedarannya yang kedua di Bukit Beruntung, Selangor.

FAMA, Tesco jalin kerjasama lebih erat

IPOH 2 Nov. - Lembaga Pemasaran Pertanian Persekutuan (FAMA) akan menjalin kerjasama lebih erat dengan Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (Tesco) bagi meningkatkan lagi pemasaran produk-produk pertanian tempatan.

Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani, Datuk Mustapa Mohamed berkata, antara produk pertanian tempatan yang diberi tumpuan pada masa ini ialah pasaran ikan keli dan tilapia serta buah-buahan tempatan.

''Buat masa ini, Tesco telah mula membeli ikan keli dan tilapia daripada pengusaha tempatan namun kita berpendapat jumlah itu boleh ditingkatkan jika ada usahasama lebih kukuh.

''Tesco kini berdepan dengan kekurangan bekalan buah-buahan tempatan seperti pisang, jadi kita akan bekerjasama supaya petani kita boleh menanam pisang yang dikehendaki oleh Tesco," katanya kepada pemberita selepas melawat Pusat Pengedaran Tesco dan Terminal Makanan Negara (Teman) di Simpang Pulai dekat sini hari ini.

Mustapa berkata, Tesco dan FAMA juga bersetuju untuk mengadakan program bersama bagi memasarkan produk-produk industri asas tani tempatan.

Katanya, bagi tujuan tersebut, pihak FAMA akan mengumpulkan semua pengusaha terlibat supaya mereka dapat memasuki pasaran Tesco yang amat memberangsangkan.

''Tesco telah terbukti berjaya dalam usaha mengurangkan kos barang-barangan dengan membuat pembelian secara langsung selain mempunyai teknologi pembungkusan terkini yang menjimatkan.

''Jadi peluang ini patut digunakan oleh FAMA dan pengusaha industri asas tani untuk membina rangkaian pemasaran lebih baik dan menggalakkan pengeluar-pengeluar makanan lebih besar," katanya.

Sementara itu, mengenai projek pembinaan Teman yang bernilai RM110 juta, Mustapa berkata, ia mengikut jadual ditetapkan dan pihak jururunding dan kontraktor memberi jaminan untuk menyiapkan prasarana itu pada Jun depan.

Katanya, Sijil Layak Menduduki (CF) bagi bangunan itu pula dijadual diterima pada September dan ia akan mula beroperasi sepenuhnya sekitar bulan November.

''Projek Teman ini amat penting dan ia akan menggantikan Pasar Borong Kuala Pari yang terletak kira-kira 15 kilometer dari sini bagi memastikan bekalan makanan di sekitar Perak sentiasa mencukupi.

''Buat masa ini sudah 330 pemborong memohon untuk beroperasi di sini dan kebanyakannya adalah daripada pasar borong lama," katanya.

Hypermarts to stay open longer


KUALA LUMPUR: Hypermarkets can extend their operating hours to 11pm on weekdays and 1am on weekends.

In announcing this when unveiling the economic stimulus package, Finance Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the move was to encourage growth in the retail and domestic tourism industries.

“This move is consistent with the aim of making the nation an interesting shopping destination.


Buying bonanza: Most shoppers agree that keeping hypermarkets open longer would be a boon as it would make shopping more convenient.

“The Government hopes that with this move, the shopping centres would react positively to the price reduction campaign,” he said in Parliament yesterday.

In George Town, consumers have welcomed the move.


Omar: It would be good if people can do their shopping up to midnight
Army officer Omar Jalil, 38, thought it was appropriate and friendly to shoppers.

“It would be good if people can do their shopping up to midnight, especially if you need to make some last-minute or emergency shopping,” he said when met at a supermarket at Bayan Baru.

Manager Gary Low, 52, welcomed the move as it would make shopping more convenient.

“It is certainly more hassle-free going to hypermarkets which are more organised and safer, compared with going to a small grocery or convenience store.

“It would be good if you can buy fish at midnight, wouldn’t it? You can’t do that at grocery stores,” he said.

When asked if they thought hypermarkets should operate round-the-clock to encourage more people to shop, spend and help stimulate the economy, many had mixed feelings.

Low said it would be good if there was such a demand in Malaysia while Omar doubted that people would shop during the early morning hours.

S.C. Wong, 33, a manager in the services industry, said such a move was both good and bad.

“It may be good for some shoppers, but the management of the hypermarkets may get some unhappy employees.

“There will also be safety and security concerns to address when business is done during such hours,” she said.
