Starting from 18 March onwards, Mydin in USJ 1 and Jaya Grocer outlets will open 30 minutes earlier for senior citizens and OKU to shop in a non-crowded environment

The new opening hours were announced in light of the recent Restricted Movement Order to curb COVID-19 in Malaysia.

Mydin USJ 1 will open from 7.30am onwards, instead of the usual 8am

In a Facebook video posted by SJ Echo yesterday, 16 March, Mydin Mohamed Holdings managing director Datuk Ameer Ali Mydin urged the public to avoid panic-buying and to just buy what you need.

"In situations like this, if you buy more, you're depriving other fellow Malaysians from getting what they also need. At times like this, we must always help each other," he advised.

He also added that there is an adequate supply of all basic essentials so there is no need to panic.
