The first KIP Mart complex opened in Masai, Johor in 2002 as a community-centric hybrid retail centre. Following its success and popularity with the local community, another outlet was opened in Tampoi in 2004. This was followed closely by other outlets in Kota Tinggi, Senawang and Melaka.
KIP Mart’s nation-wide footprint includes presence in the Southern region in the state of Johor and Melaka, Central region around the state of Selangor and Negeri Sembilan with plans to add more outlets in central region and move upwards to Northern region in the state of Kedah and East Coast region in the state of Pahang.
KIP Group develops, leases and manages all of its own KIPMart.
KIP Mart features community-centric hybrid retail centres offering fresh produce and daily essentials. Each complex offers 5 categories of unique retail mix of fresh market, supermarket, retail shops & services, car showrooms and F&B outlets.
KIP Mart was created from the idea of “a market for the community” where traditionally seen in growing townships, a fresh market is surrounded by stalls and shops operated by small to medium local traders selling fresh produce, daily essentials, general merchandise, clothing, electrical items, household products, jewellery, food & beverages, as well as hair and beauty services to the local community.
Each KIP Mart also provides facilities such as ATM services, money changer, family entertainment area, push-cart kiosks, promotion areas and free parking space. KiP Mart also organises regular promotional events offering attractive prizes to attract shoppers.
KIP Mart offers a localised traders platform for business-to-business and business-to-consumers market segments, whereby a platform with better amenities are offered to local traders to thrive in a marketplace setting with constant flow of traffic. KIP Mart retains the tradition and familiarity of a fresh food market albeit in a more conducive environment for customers ~ community-centric hybrid retail centres for buying and selling like the old times in a new way
