Our History

The seed of 99 Speedmart was sown in the form of a traditional “mom and pop” sundry mart called Pasar Raya Hiap Hoe by the founder Mr. Lee Thiam Wah in Tepi Sungai, Klang.

This humble beginning has allowed Mr. Lee to gain firsthand knowledge and insights into the sundry retail market through personal interactions with customers and suppliers.

The very first store that bore the name “99” opens in Klang Utama. Pasar Mini 99, represented the very first step Mr.Lee takes to realize his vision of building an integrated chain of mini-marts.

With sheer dedication and hard work, Mr.Lee expanded Pasar Mini 99 to eight other outlets in Klang ala chain store format.

Amidst the growing popularity of Pasar Mini 99, 99 Speedmart name was launched with new store opening at Batu Belah, Klang with an intensive expansion strategy geared to help the chain increase market penetration and share. It also represents more than just a rebranding exercise and entails the introduction of a fresh approach in interior as well as exterior set up to enhance the visibility of the shop and the comfort of shopping.

A new head office and distribution centre was completed in October 2002 at a cost of RM6.5 million.

This warehouse is a 80,000 square feet facility, complete with centralizes stacking, storage and warehousing capabilities.

2 years effort in refining the 99 Speedmart concepts produced encouraging results from increasing customer traffic volume and new store openings. This breakthrough convinced Mr. Lee that a new super chain of 99 Speedmart mini markets was ready to take-off. Thus, all the Pasar Mini 99 stores were rebranded as 99 Speedmart.

99 Speedmart received its first Consumer Choice Award from the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Malaysia. This milestone marking award proved 99 Speedmart’s success in winning customers’ hearts and minds.
