how I wish ikea will set their foot here too


heh I don't bother about Everise. either they develop themselves or they get phased out eventually and naturally.


I doubt Everise will ever be phased out. The characteristics of shoppers in Kuching are similar to Pontianak. They want bargain, not prestige. As long as Everise can maintain a 'bang for the buck' concept, they can give Carrefour a run for their money.

Similar case study from Pontianak:

In many parts of Indonesia, National chain and International chain keeps opening doors in new places, and in most places they open doors the local supermarkets shuts. In East Kalimantan, what they called local supermarkets are mere two doors shophouses.

But in Pontianak, 2 out 3 national chain supermarket that open doors here shuts down within 3 years, and the third is about to go down in a matter of months after more than 5 years trying to survive. The only national chain surviving is branch of a national chain Hypermart. The local supermarkets are not only surviving, but growing. Some infact emulates on the national chain and try to imitate its store concept.

The reason being:

1. Unlike in other parts of the country where traffic congestions and distance make time valuable and people will shops all their grocery needs in one-stop-super-shop, people in pontianak have time and a 100 rupiah difference can scare customers away.

2. The local supermarkets are more flexible in policy and promotion and can quickly adapt their running promos to suit the local requirements, the big chains are a bit slow on that.

3. The locals tends to share the same emotions and see the big national as common thread, and thus are willing to work together for their own survival.

I heard that Everrise in Pedada Rd, Sibu will close down business this year. Don't know how true this is but based on the number of visits looks like their business not as good as before.

But one true fact is Everrise price is generally speaking still expensive compared to other supermarkets in Sibu. In Kuching I think Everrise is doing very well but definitely not in Sibu.

Everrise now face stiff competition from Farley and Sing Kwong which offered more products and lower prices.

Another victim could be Ngiu Kee which is the oldest supermarket in Sibu. For every visit there is hardly any visitors and this has been going on for years.

Anyone here know what type of project is taking shape next to F&N factory at 3rd mile? I saw the area being fenced up and there is a pilling machine inside.

Not so sure, but it was rumoured that Giant and Tesco were following suit too.
