Gama Supermarket & Departmental StoreGAMA is the first supermarket and department store in Penang. It is housed in Wisma GAMA located at the junctions of Dato Kramat Road, Jalan Gurdwara, Penang Road, Magazine Road and Macalister Road. Opened in December 1980, GAMA was the biggest department store at the time.

Before relocating to its current location, this home-grown retail store started as Pulau Pinang Supermarket at the Chowrasta Market located along Penang Road in 1967. GAMA is recognized as the pioneer in the concept of supermarket-cum-department store in the retail industry. Thanks to its owner Chang Cheng Guan, who ventured into retail business after seeing the booming industry in Singapore.

GAMA’s popularity is mainly due to its strategic location and excellent merchandise mix. Its shopping environment is improved and upgraded from time to time to ensure a comfortable shopping experience for its loyal shoppers. It continues to attract customers by offering attractive promotions all year round. GAMA keeps evolving to meet the customers’ demands and preferences.


GAMA has a wide selection of apparel, personal essentials, beauty accessories, food items and home basics. It has separate sections for ladies’, men’s and kids’ fashion and accessories. Mostly are local brands but there are some international brands as well.

The supermarket has loyal shoppers because of its low prices compared to some supermarkets in the island. They sell fresh items and have a separate area for wines and liquors. They also have a whole aisle for Japanese foods.

Natural Health Living Pharmacy can be found at the ground floor.


GAMA has their own cafeteria located at the 6th floor that serves mostly local and western food like mee goreng, curry chicken, spaghetti and fish and chips. The cafeteria serves halal food from 10am to 7pm. They provide complimentary WiFi for customers.

Four Leaves Bakery is located at the ground floor. All the pastries are baked in the kitchen on the same premises so most are made fresh for the day.


GAMA does not have an entertainment area but it does have a little play area with a small slide and play house at the kids’ section.
