Malaysian textile retailer Wah Yoon opens third outlet
Jun '12
Malaysian textile retail business Wah Yoon Group has launched its third outlet - Wah Yoon Deco Sdn Bhd - at Alamesra, at Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia.

Michael Pan, Managing Director of the retail business that serves all tastes and requirements, said the company was originally established by his father under the name Wah Yoon Trading Sdn Bhd in a small shop in Segama Complex in 1979.

This was followed by the launch of a second outlet - Wah Yoon Textiles Centre Sdn Bhd - at Grand Plaza Putatan in 2008.

Mr. Michael, who originally hailed from Peninsular Malaysia, said when he came to Sabah and took charge of the business in 1986, most of the material the company sold had printed floral designs.

But, he wanted to introduce something new that catered to the need of every household, and came up with the idea of selling curtains.

The company now operates a one-stop centre where they sew the curtains on demand by customers purchasing fabric from them, and even fix up these curtains for customers, Mr. Michael said.

Most of the textiles that the retailer offers are imported from Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and China.

The retailer offers 1,000 different varieties of fabrics for sofa and batik, which includes collections based on themes of festivals like Hari Raya, Chinese New Year and Christmas.

Mr. Michael said that good customer service and fairly priced quality goods are the main drivers of Wah Yoon's success.

In 2010, the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumer Affairs bestowed the retailer with the Fair Price Shop Award.
