Several retailers, grocery outlets, and convenience stores across the country have revised their store business hours in response to the movement restriction order announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin last week.

Here is a list of outlets that have changed their operation hours from now until 31 March 2020 to accommodate the country’s fight against the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
