KOTA KINABALU: Your home is now closer than ever. Residents here can now rejoice as Harvey Norman – the leading household name in Malaysia – opens its doors at Suria Sabah Shopping Mall.

The new Suria Sabah Superstore promises a comfortable, conducive, and immersive shopping environment, as Harvey Norman brings its wide range of electrical appliances, IT and mobile devices, furniture, and bedding products right to their doorstep.

This significant milestone officially marks the brand’s entry into Sabah, with a vision of establishing 80 stores nationwide by 2028. The Grand Opening of the store was attended by Industrial Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Phoong Jin Zhe.

To cater to the consumers’ ever-changing shopping behaviour and busy lifestyles, Harvey Norman is dedicated to empower Sabahans with its seamless omni-channel shopping experience.

"At Harvey Norman, we understand the needs of our customers and strive to bring convenience right to their doorstep," said Harvey Norman Asia Managing Director Kenneth Aruldoss.

"We are setting out to further cement and enlarge the brand's footprint in the country! With this new opening, gone are the days when our Sabahan friends would have to fly to West Malaysia to purchase from Harvey Norman. Now they can purchase their products directly from our Suria Sabah Superstore.” 

Kenneth Aruldoss further added that Harvey Norman is committed to being conveniently accessible to customers, with the inclusion of a plethora of services such as product exchange and easy payment options for Kota Kinabalu residents.

“In this modern day and age, people are becoming more discerning and will seek out products that enhance their quality of life.

“The demand for high-quality electrical appliances, IT and mobile devices, furniture and bedding products are on the rise, and Harvey Norman’s foray into East Malaysia proves to be an opportune and timely one.

“With their extensive range of products, I believe it will bring about positive changes in the industry and enhance Sabahans’ way of life,” said Phoong.
