Go Shop Supports Local Businesses With #GoShopSapotLokal

  • 28 Apr 2020

In conjunction with Ramadan and Raya festive seasons, Go Shop, the eCommerce arm of Astro, has launched its Ramadan e-Bazaar to support local F&B businesses and a special channel (Astro CH111) for customers. 

Dr Grace Lee, CEO of Astro Go Shop said, "Ramadan and Raya are traditionally important to SMEs. We are cognisant that some businesses in Malaysia may be impacted by the pandemic and are committed to support local businesses specifically those in the SME and Micro-SME space.

"It is timely that we launched the Go Shop Ramadan Bazaar for small F&B businesses to list their products on our marketplace for free, thus gaining a wider exposure among 2.2 million Go Shop customers. We hope customers will continue to support local SMEs through this initiative and to spread the word to other SMEs to sign up to be part of our Ramadan Bazaar."

To date there are about 100 F&B businesses such as De. Wan 1958 by Chef Wan, Brownies Bar by The Accidental Bakers, LaksaNA, Pihapi, BurgerBros, Warna Pops, Tut’s Egyptian Eatery and many more who have registered. All local F&B businesses who meet the minimum criteria can register at Customers interested in purchasing from the Ramadan Bazaar can contact the sellers directly via an email or WhatsApp link provided in the listing. 

New channel, Go Shop Ramadan & Raya Edisi Khas (CH111) features Diari Rumah, Stail TV, Go Shop Express and Dapur Selebriti which focuses on home improvement tips, muslimah fashion and cooking ideas from celebrity chefs like Chef Wan, Chef Florence Tan and Chef Kamarulin. 

During the MCO, customers can enjoy the convenience of purchasing fresh or frozen food including fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen and dried seafood and even ready-to-eat meals. From 1-31 May 2020 customers can use promo code DUIT30 or DUIT60 to enjoy an instant RM30 or RM60 off their purchase when they spend a minimum of RM300 or RM500 for products showcased on Go Shop TV programmes.
