MBPP opens online applications for market stalls


Online applications for renting stalls at Penang Island City Council (MBPP) markets, food complexes, and hawker sites for June is now open from June 15 to 23.

MBPP councillor Tan Soo Siang stated that applicants who do not register during this period will not be eligible for the online interview session.

“This session offers 126 vacant stalls across 23 locations.

“The Taman Terubong Jaya Market and Teluk Bahang Market have the highest number of vacancies.

“The fish section has the most vacancies, with 26 stalls available across nine markets, except for Jalan Permai Market and Jalan Tengku Market,” Tan said this morning.

Tan also mentioned that rental costs range from RM6 to RM200, depending on the type of stall.

At the press conference held at the Licensing Department near Jalan Padang Kota Lama, Tan reported that the previous interview session in May received 273 applications. Of these, 24% were successful, 56% were unsuccessful, and 20% were absent.

“Applicants are advised to ensure stable internet connectivity, choose a suitable location for the online interview, dress appropriately, and be on time,” Tan added.

    What happened to Pasar & Kompleks Makanan Teluk Kumbar Heights ?? Heard every stall is occupied and rented. But no shop opens. Why MBPP allow them to “cop” stall?

    Due to low first hand rent, many “cop” and hope to rent out at higher price. Sadly this is Malaysian rent-seeking business mentality, all wanna be middlemen. MBPP not rajin enough to go check and saman those renting from them without opening the stall.
