Kuala Lumpur, March 15, 2021

Pan Pacific Retail Management (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., the overseas subsidiary of Pan Pacific International Holdings Corporation, opened its very first store in Malaysia on 19 March 2021, known as “JONETZ by DON DON DONKI” at Lot 10 Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

DON DON DONKI is expanding its business to Asia Pacific (APAC) regions such as Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan, with the introduction of a Japanese specialty store concept, selling Japan made and/or made for Japan merchandises at affordable prices.

Satoshi Machida, President, Pan Pacific Retail Management (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., commented, “We are extremely excited with our expansion to Malaysia as it earmarks our continuous effort to grow our presence in the region. Malaysia has a growing retail industry and offers the opportunity to build our brand.”

“JONETZ by DON DON DONKI Lot 10” store, located at the city’s most vibrant commercial centre, will feature a brand-new store format from the existing DON DON DONKI stores. In this new store format, we will mainly provide Japanese products which are selected with “Passion” such as our very own house brand known as “Jonetsu Kakaku” which means “Passionate Price”. Hence, inspiring us to call our new specialty store “JONETZ”.

We will also have Halal certified items and non-pork & non-alcohol products, to enable our Muslim customers to enjoy shopping with peace of mind. Our meat section will specialize in beef, including a variety of Wagyu beef and Japanese BBQ meat platter, which are obtained from a Halal certified factory.

Additionally, popular seasonal fruits will be made available and there will be a special area, the “RM5 Ringgit Section” that offers daily consumables & general goods.

In light of the COVID-19 situation, PPIH Group has embarked on introducing home delivery services since December 2020 in other countries to cater to the shifting need and trends of shopping. In Malaysia, PPIH will introduce the e-commerce business. Customers will be able to get access to Japanese products via the official online store on Shopee and Grab. Customers throughout the country will be able to enjoy the products from the comfort of their homes.

“JONETZ by DON DON DONKI Lot 10” which occupies 2,181 square meters across three floors, promises a fun convenient and safe shopping experience for all shoppers. The store will house a wide range of Japanese products such as snacks, groceries, cosmetics, beauty, food, household and many more.

“We hope our customers will have a pleasant experience as they shop for their favourite Japanese products which are of high quality, unique and reasonably priced,” concluded Satoshi Machida.

This latest addition to Lot 10 joins other notable Japanese establishments like Isetan The Japan Store, The Table and J's Gate Dining making Lot 10 your gateway to Japan.
