Mr Ben was founded in 1978 by Mr Benjamin (Tan Meng Huat), with the opening of the first Mr Ben store in the city of Medan, North Sumatra. Serving people with good quality products to help them live better was the goal that Mr Benjamin envisioned when he opened the doors to the first Mr Ben. Fifteen years later, he opened a second store in Tangerang, West Java. Today, more than 30 years later, he continues to deliver that promise. It is the focus that underlies everything he does.

Mr Bens are small community grocery stores specializing in imported merchandise and friendly service. Our stores feature clean, brightly-lit aisles and shelves stocked with a variety of quality merchandise. We know that price matters to our customers, that is why we offer the best quality merchandise at the lowest prices in our stores, from household items to top quality groceries, even freshly baked breads and a wide assortment of wines. 

Our stores are less than half the size of a conventional supermarket and are built to help customers get in and out quickly, to provide a fresh and convenient shopping experience for busy people. The average size of our store is 350 square meter, each employs about 10 English speaking associates. 

Now, we also have another goal: to bring you the best shopping experience on the Internet. Save time, shop online!
