Eco-shop, most well known for having everything priced at a low price of just RM2.20, is now raising their prices again to RM2.40.
The chain notes that this price increase is due to increase in costs for the business as well.
In December 2021, they raised their prices to RM2.20 per item, a 10 sen increase.
Now, a mere six months later, they are once again raising their prices to RM2.40 per item, a 20 sen increase.
The budget chain store has more than 150 stores across Malaysia and sells a very wide variety of items at an affordable price.
No one likes price hikes
Much like last year, customers grumbled about the rising costs, saying that there was already a price hike just last year.
However, others defended the store, saying that their items were still cheaper than other regular stores.
