This means that prior to our nation’s independence in 1957, Malaysians were already buying groceries from this beloved store. If you think about it, that's even before some of your grandparents were born!

The story of Giant began in 1944, when entrepreneur Teng Sek How opened a small grocery shop in Sentul Pasar

As business picked up, the company expanded with a retail shop in 1960s, and eventually opened up Teng’s Mini Market Centre in Bangsar in 1974. Eight years later, the first Giant Supermarket began business in Kelana Jaya, and there’s been no looking back ever since.

Giant has been around for so long, it's no surprise that Malaysians have had all kinds of fun and memorable experiences here
