MYDIN was founded in 1918 by Gulam Husen Jamal, father to Mydin Mohamed in Penang. Their first hawker business was started on 1940. However, the shop was burnt down as a result of World War II and the family lost everything. But with strong determination, perseverance and faith has made his children, Mydin Mohamed, to continue the trades of wholesaling.
In 1957, he opened his first shop which was a small wooden shop named Syarikat Mydin Mohamed in Jalan Tok Hakim, Kota Bharu, Kelantan by selling toys and general merchandise with his own hard-earned money. With the help of his immediate sons, the business spreads its operations to Kuala Terengganu in 1979 and later made their presences in Klang Valley at Jalan Masjid India in 1989. From then on MYDIN has grown steadily. With its vision to be the world’s leading distributor of competitive halal-goods and services in Malaysia, it is now known as MYDIN Mohamed Holdings Berhad.
In 2011, MYDIN, along with other major hypermarkets such as Tesco and Carrefour participated in the TUKAR program under the Economic Transformation Program. The program is aimed to transform 100 selected sundry shops into modern mini marts. The company is responsible for training the shops and providing assistance after transforming as mini marts along with Tesco. In July 2013, MYDIN’s then ventured into the high-end retailing with the opening of the first SAM’s Groceria outlet at the Gurney Paragon in Penang in July 2013.
