SEREMBAN: The Negeri Sembilan Office of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry has identified four areas in the state -- Tampin, Jelebu, Rembau and Jempol -- to set up Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) shops.
Its director, Mohd Talal Abu Bakar, said the decision to set up a KR1M shop would depend on the suitability of the site and many other factors.
"Negeri Sembilan has four KR1M shops since last year. Three are in Port Dickson (Bandar Sunggala, Pekan Lukut and Bandar Springhill) and one in Kuala Pilah (Dioh industrial estate)," he told Bernama here today.
He said the decision to set up KR1M outlets would depend on the management of KR1M, Syarikat Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd.
"We will look for suitable locations to set up the shops in the state in line with the federal government's plan to ease to burden of the low-income rakayat," he said.
KR1M was introduced on June 22 last year to help the public, particularly the urban middle- to low-income households, in facing the spiralling cost of living. -- BERNAMA
