The grand opening event held today saw customers and guests enjoy a myriad of activities in the two-storey space. Speaking at the event, MR D.I.Y.’s Head of Marketing Alex Goh said, “Customers today are smart and savvy. They want great value, the convenience of a one-stop-shop, and the added benefit of an interesting and engaging shopping experience. MR D.I.Y. PLUS brings all these facets together in one exciting space – it’s no wonder then that over 200,000 visitors have been to the store in its first month, since we first opened our doors on 19 May 2022.”
Goh said that the store had been developed based on insights and customer feedback garnered by MR D.I.Y. as part of its ongoing, always-on consumer research and data analytics process.
“We didn’t simply set out to build an extra-large store. MR D.I.Y. PLUS is a carefully curated space that brings together our wide range of everyday essentials in one convenient location.”
“Our research shows that post-pandemic, customers want the assurance of low prices more than ever, but in fun, interesting and interactive ways – they want to be entertained! MR D.I.Y. PLUS promises customers that they can still continue to shop for their daily essentials at everyday low prices, but also be entertained, educated and inspired in the process,” said Goh.

- The original MR. D.I.Y. brand which launched in 2005
- MR. TOY in 2019
