KUCHING: Supermarket operators in the city have assured that they have sufficient stocks of all household products, so they urged the public to refrain from buying in bulk.

Choice Group managing director Allan Hon said they would use all available resources to help as many people as possible during this difficult time.

“If you have family members who are frail and in need of help or you know of a certain group that needs essential groceries, please let us know,” he said on his Facebook page.

He said his supermarkets would not be able to help everyone but they would try their best.

“Please message us and we will respond as best we can. We also need volunteers to help with deliveries and if you are willing, please get in touch with us. Let’s get through this together,” he said.

Everrise Supermarket also said they would continue to serve as best they could.

On their Facebook page, they said preventive measures had been carried out following the outbreak of Covid-19 in the state.

“We ensure that our shopping trolleys and baskets are clean and sanitised and hand sanitisers are provided for customers. This is our top priority for the wellbeing of our customers and employees,” he said.

 As for 24/7 Emart supermarket, their business will open as usual while public movement is under restriction.

“You may visit us to purchase necessities,” Emart Malaysia said in their Facebook page.

For H&L, their physical store will also be open while offering its H&Lexpress delivery service to get goods to customers’ doorsteps.

“There will be free delivery service for purchases of RM60 and above. All you have to do is download the H&Lexpress app,” they stated in their Facebook page.

Servay in their Facebook page said their hypermarket would stay open and they urged their customers not to panic and buy more goods than necessary.
