Ang Say Tee, chairman of the Kuala Lumpur Hawkers and Petty Traders Association, pleaded with Malaysians to help the struggling Petaling Street traders.
He said, “The colourful and bustling Petaling Street is now completely empty as MCO 2.0 has restricted customers to visit our stores. Our members now have an oversupply of Chinese New Year paraphernalia, OX-related clothing and so much more.”
“With this partnership, we hope that Malaysians will support our Petaling Street vendors by purchasing their CNY needs from them and help us protect the legacy of Petaling Street. This Street is an important part of history which defines our multicultural nation. Please help us ensure that it does not go extinct,” he added.
With deals that start from as low as 88 sen, there is over 1,500 items offered by Petaling Street traders in a special “Petaling Street Goes Ong-Line” collection on Shopee, just in time for the Year of the Ox.
