our view is that with the benefit of the vaccines which are starting to rollout and a better understanding on how to protect ourselves with the standard operating procedures, we are certainly in a better position than we were in at March 2020, ” its chief executive officer Adrian Ong told StarBiz. PETALING JAYA: MR DIY. Group (M) Bhd believes that the worst is over for its operations following the various disruptions it had to endure last year and recently due to the Covid-19 pandemic and corresponding movement control orders (MCOs) that have been imposed. “We know that there are continued uncertainties with the Covid-19. “But our view is that with the benefit of the vaccines which are starting to rollout and a better understanding on how to protect ourselves with the standard operating procedures, we are certainly in a better position than we were in at March 2020, ” its chief executive officer Adrian Ong told StarBiz. “Then, I recall it was very devastating. By and large we have seen some of the worst of it already and largely know what to expect. Going forward, we are optimistic, ” Ong added. He said that restrictions on travel and movement had a moderate impact on in-store traffic as its network of 700+ stores, nationwide presence and broad range of products provided customers the convenience and proximity they needed to procure their everyday essentials. “This was complemented by our always-on e-commerce platform, which saw strong increases in visits this past year. All these helped our brand stay resilient and mitigated the impact of the subdued retail environment, resulting in our satisfactory performance, ” he said.
