[Updated as of 11 Apr 2020 - The Malaysian government announced a further extension of the Movement Control Order for another 2 weeks yesterday. We've included a new entry below (number 11) for  Pak Grocer, a chain of provision stores which is currently offering home delivery services (for those who live within 10km of an outlet). We will continuously be updating this article to reflect updates from all the supermarkets and online delivery platforms.] On 16 March 2020, the Malaysian government announced a nationwide restriction of movement order aimed at combating the further spread of Covid-19 cases. With the closure of schools, businesses, mosques, and more, many Malaysians are stocking up on food and other essentials to minimise the need to go out during this time. To help you out, we've compiled a round-up of grocery stores and other online delivery platforms that you can turn to during this time. In addition, there are current restrictions in place for all supermarket and restaurant operating hours (from 8pm - 8pm), though do note individual stores may open later or close earlier within that timeframe. We've included updates with regards to opening hours, special policies and other information for consumers during this period.We'll be updating this list continuously throughout the next couple weeks so it'll be easy to keep track - do let us know if you come across any relevant updates too! As a gentle reminder, do remember to keep calm and not resort to panic buying - many of the grocery stores we've listed below have reiterated that they are regularly restocking shelves and are taking all precautionary measures to minimise risks associated with Covid-19 (e.g. sanitising surfaces, etc.). Currently, only one person per household is allowed to go to stores and supermarkets for grocery shopping. Many readers have also shared their frustrations over delivery slots being full or delays in delivery time - we recognise that this isn't ideal, but we do note that retailers are striving to fulfil the exceptional surge in demand as best as they can and trying to add more slots. For those that aren't able to get online delivery slots and have to shop at the store, we have alsocompiled tips on the proper precautionary measure to take while shopping at the supermarket. Major supermarkets

  • As you shop at Tesco in the coming weeks, it's a great time to use their new Scan&Shop app (available on Android and Apple) that can help make your shopping go a lot faster. The app allows you to scan the items you're buying while as you browse in the store and put them in your shopping bag directly. Upon going to the checkout, all you have to do is scan the barcode from the app and pay (rather than having to go through the longer processing of scanning and bagging each item). The app's gotten great reviews so far, so do try it out on your next trip to Tesco!

While you can't find fresh produce like frozen foods or poultry, you can still stock up on shelf-stable foods like cereal, instant noodles, granola and more as well as household supplies and toiletries. Shopee Malaysia has stated that deliveries will continue throughout the restricted movement period, though some delivery periods may be extended, depending on the seller and the item. Read their full statement regarding the situation here. Do note that items purchased from different sellers may take different lengths of time to reach depending from the supplier's location so it's not as convenient as a one-shop solution, but it could be a good option for select items or one-off purchases.
