#ExtraNotOrdinary Bazaar was all about empowering home-grown micro brands during this trying time

by Grace Sundram

It’s all about nurturing these local brands that put in their heart and soul into creating beautiful products, especially during this trying time. The #ExtraNotOrdinary Bazaar was held last Friday at Publika highlighting only home-grown micro brands through Poptron’s newly-launched social commerce platform.


There were also interactive artistic acts and games, in addition to cultural performances courtesy of Yayasan Hasanah. To abide by the SOP, CIMB encouraged the public to embrace cashless payment methods in their daily spending, mainly ’cause they can enjoy amazing rewards if they used the CIMB e-Credit Card.


The event featured a range of curated lifestyle brands available on Poptron’s platform and various showcases, paying tribute to the ingenuity of our local talent and unique local products in conjunction with Malaysia Day.


Poptron recently launched its social commerce platform with a curated list of around 100 local micro and emerging brands spanning over 7 categories. Many of these micro brands were selected as they share ethical, responsible and socially conscious aspirations, with some being social enterprises that give back or provide skills training to underprivileged and marginalised communities.


Whereas the CIMB e Credit Card powered by Visa was specially designed to suit the needs of customers’ digital-first lifestyles in the COVID-19 environment. The credit card provides extra value for online, e-wallet, contactless & auto-billing transactions with up to 12 times bonus points for each transaction with no minimum spend without being limited to any e-commerce platform. Customers can even get extravagant rewards via e Credit Card Featured Partners with the likes of Lazada, Shopee & Taobao on CIMB eDay, which falls on 10th of every month.
