For the past two years, we’ve seen many Korean convenience stores opening up in Malaysia, with the likes of CU and emart24. Rejoice, foodies! We can expect more to come with a brand new Korean convenience store opening in Malaysia.
GS25 To Open First Outlet In Malaysia In 2023
This just in that popular South Korea convenience store chain, GS25 is set to open their FIRST outlet in Malaysia next year. Retail convenience store operator, GS Retail, has joined hands with Malaysian retail conglomerate KK Group to bring the franchise into the Malaysian market.
KK Group currently operates 610 KK Mart convenience stores in Malaysia and has other businesses, such as hotels and resorts. Their goal is to expand the GS25 store to Southeast Asia with 500 outlets in the next five years. Malaysia will be GS25’s third entry overseas, after Vietnam & Mongolia.
GS25 is one of the top convenience stores in Korea. Giving strong hallyu (Korean wave) feel, you can expect popular Korean food items such as bibimbap, topokki, Inkigayo sandwiches and many more. If it’s anything like the GS25 in Vietnam, we can even expect a huge variety of fresh produce too!
