GUARDIAN MALAYSIA LOWERS AND LOCKS PRICES OF 1,500 ESSENTIALS
To cushion impact of Covid-19 pandemic for consumers
SHAH ALAM: 28 May 2021: - Guardian Malaysia today launched a nation wide initiative to
lower and lock the prices of 1,500 items of health, beauty and personal care essentials to
cushion the impact of financial challenges brought about by the pandemic.
The prices of these items have been lowered and will remain unchanged for the rest of the
year so that customers need not have to visit multiple places for great deals, said Soren
Lauridsen, CEO of Guardian South East Asia (Guardian SEA), as well as Guardian Health
And Beauty Sdn Bhd (Guardian Malaysia).
He said: “We have listened closely to our customers and what they look for, especially following the onset of the pandemic and decided to support them by locking the low prices of 1,500 essentials to protect from price fluctuations.
The “Low Prices Locked To Stay Low” initiative is a regional effort by Guardian SEA and underscores the Group’s commitment to ensure prices of daily essentials such as bath, hair care, personal hygiene, vitamins and supplements remain affordable during this challenging
time when customers are increasingly looking to stretch their dollar.
“Our customers throughout the country, including those who prefer to buy online, can enjoy these affordable prices and great value, every day for the rest of the year. We believe our customers will appreciate this form of support in this highly uncertain environment,” he added.
Lauridsen said the selection of products is based on Guardian’s research on customer buying behaviour and preferences. It reflects what they buy most often, such as Dove and Pantene shampoo, Darlie toothpaste and Panadal Actifast. “Our customers also indicated that affordability is a priority, which is the focus of our
initiative,” he added.
Reflecting the findings of the research, and given the current deep concerns over healthcare, a total of 35% of the items are health essentials, carefully selected to make them even more affordable.
In the current climate, Guardian observed a growth in demand for Guardian’s own brand products because of its attractive price range and trusted quality. As such prices of all Guardian Brand products have also been lowered and locked in this initiative.
Lauridsen said: “Our investment in this initiative is in line with Guardian’s commitment in putting our customers at the heart of everything that we do, listening to their needs as the trusted leading pharmacy, health and beauty destination in Malaysia.
“In addition, we remain committed to improving the customer experience despite the challenging economic climate - we have invested in store refits and new openings in the past year with a focus on giving customers greater accessibility to quality health and beauty products and services all at a one-stop destination.”
“Our initiative goes beyond just great prices. We have worked hard and have become the trusted experts in community health, supported by a large team of pharmacists. Guardian remains a dedicated long-term partner to improving the health and well-being of all our customers,” Lauridsen added.
