One of the notable characteristics of the outlet is its range of imported products, more so to cater to the Western expatriates of the area.

The place is swell with a mixed crowd of patrons from locals to foreigners, and surprisingly packed with people especially on the weekends. Having imported products in sight, it goes without saying that generally the prices you pay are usually premium.

Just a case in point, a purchase of celery (imported from Europe) can cost RM20+ in comparison to Tesco Malaysia’s celery (imported from China) only cost less than RM5. It’s a stark contrast, don’t you think so?

Now it’s your call to decide where to do your grocery shopping. 🙂
