Two Malaysian supermarket chains have introduced special opening hours that are catered specifically for senior citizens. Both Mydin and Jaya Grocer made the announcements following the government’s recent enforcement of a nationwide movement restriction order to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Starting from 18 March 2020 onwards, Mydin USJ 1 will open at 7.30 a.m. instead of the usual 8.00 a.m. for senior citizens and disabled people so that they can shop in a less crowded environment. The supermarket chain will also have cashier counters dedicated to assisting them, along with staff members to help them move their items.

“(This is) exclusively for senior citizens and the disabled. We know they are the most vulnerable during these difficult times so let’s give them the time and space to shop,” said the managing director of Mydin, Ameer Ali Mydin.

Jaya Grocer, too, announced that its outlets will open half an hour earlier so that they can specifically serve senior citizens.

“We are introducing special opening hours from 9.30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at participating outlets for elderly customers (60s and above) and their caretakers. This initiative is to ensure those in need can shop for their daily needs in a safe and worry-free environment,” said the supermarket chain in a statement.

The movement restriction order that was imposed across the country will last for two weeks, starting from 18 March 2020 until 31 March 2020. It will not affect supermarkets, grocery stores, stores selling basic necessities, and food delivery services like Grab.
