FIVE Giant supermarkets will shut their doors on November 5, following a decision not to extend their leasing contracts, as the retail industry continues to struggle with sluggish sales.

Giant’s owners GCH Retail Malaysia said in a statement to The Malaysian Insight yesterday that it “has decided to cease its operations located at Sri Manjung, Sg Petani, Shah Alam City Centre Mall, Sibu and Selayang Lama following the end of its lease agreement”.

  • Thank you immensely for this REAL NEWS, TMI as opposed to all that is FAKE NEWS out there. I tend to rely on visceral feel on the condition of our lives. ENOUGH of hallucinogenic MORPHINE from WORLD BANK and INTERNATIONAL RATING AGENCIES with their halftruths and misleading euphemism to add for confusion in the fray. Please expose more of such realities. TQ
