Don Don Donki, a popular Japanese chain retailer by JONETZ, operated by Pan Pacific Retail Management (PPRM) has just launched their second and largest store in Malaysia located right beside the new Golden Screen Cinema (GSC) outlet at Tropicana Gardens.
Group Managing Director of Tropicana, Dion Tan stated that “The mall opened its doors in the early stages of the pandemic in March 2020. Despite that, our tenancy rate had since doubled from 27% to 56% in November 2021, and is set to achieve 67% by the end of this year.”
Dion also mentioned that the all-new Don Don Donki store spans over 42,243 square feet across 2 levels while offering a wide variety of quality Japanese products which includes Yatai Japanese street food stalls, CosmeDONKI cosmetic corner, and the Halal section filled with halal-certified products. Despite the wide variety at Don Don Donki, all the products offered are reasonably priced as JONETZ puts top priority in ensuring a satisfactory customer experience for their authentic Japanese products.
Satoshi Machida, President of PPRM (Malaysia), operating company of Jonetz by Don Don Donki, stated that “As a group, we have over 680 stores throughout Japan as well as Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, and the United States. This is our second store in Malaysia and the largest Don Don Donki store in the Asia-Pacific region. We hope our customers enjoy our Japanese specialty – from snacks and groceries, a variety of halal-certified Wagyu beef platters to ready-to-eat meals, traditional sweets, and more.”
