KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 21): Home improvement retailer MR DIY has embarked on its “Poket Selamat 7” campaign to ensure that the public have affordable and accessible personal protective gear to stay safe as offices and businesses around the country reopen, and students prepare for a return to school in October.
In a statement today, the retailer said effective from Sept 15, 2021, three-ply face masks are priced at RM5/box [down from RM5.90/box previously], while face shields are priced at RM5.90/piece [down from RM7.90/piece].
The firm had recently announced a permanent price reduction on face masks and face shields.
MR DIY Group (M) Bhd vice president of marketing Andy Chin said the group wanted to help the people stay safe as they return to work and school, or if they need to travel.
"By permanently reducing the prices of protective essentials, we hope they will find it easy to adhere to the SOPs without burning a hole in their pockets. It is the surest way to ensure that the entire community will be safe,” said Chin.
MR DIY’s annual “Poket Selamat” campaign showcases mega offers on popular, best-selling, and high-demand products.
In this, its seventh edition, discounts of up to 40% on 45 selected products are being offered at 738 MR DIY stores nationwide, as well as on the retailer’s e-commerce website, www.mrdiy.com.my.
As part of the campaign, MR DIY has introduced discounts on hardware, electrical items, handphone and car accessories, household products, stationery, and toys.
These discounts will be effective for one month, beginning Sept 15.
At midday break today, MR DIY was traded at RM3.88 with 1.84 million shares done.
