Who We Are
In our 21 years as the parent company, our group has evolved from a single traditional newsstand to being one of the largest pioneers of homegrown press and retail convenience chain in Malaysia, bringing premium press and convenience shopping to our customers through our open and inviting outlet concept.
Spanning more than 410 outlets nationwide, we operate under brands such as myNEWS.com, newsplus, MAGBIT, THE FRONT PAGE, as well as WHSmith, which is operated under our equal joint venture with WHSmith Travel, one of UK’s leading retailers. What’s more, we are also involved in the operation of WHSmith news and book retailing stores in airports throughout Malaysia, and run a food and beverage outlet named Bison Café.
