KwongTuck Sundries & Liquors Sdn. Bhd. is the shop famously known for its quality imported liquor, sundry goods, and canned food. The shop occupies a double-story shop house which is located on Campbell Street, one of the famous streets in Georgetown, Penang.
The founder of this business was the late Mr. Woo Fook Yin. Mr. Woo Fook Yin started this business in the year 1836 in Guang Dong province in China. He later moved to Malaysia and started off by selling sundries and liquors in baskets around town. As his business grew, he decided to stay in Malaysia and the business was passed on to his son Woo Kwong Sum, who started the sundry shop in Penang, bearing the name "KwongTuck".
The shop's name was derived from a combination of the first Chinese character from his great-grandfather's hometown “Kwang 廣” (GuangDong or Canton) and another Chinese character, “Tuck 德” which means 'virtue' or 'moral character'.
This shop is currently operating in its 185th year. It is now managed by Woo Saik Khow and Woo Shee Khow who are the 4th generation of the Woo family in Malaysia. Currently the youngest KwongTuck Woo is the 7th generation, down the lineage from Mr. Woo Fook Yin. Most of the Woo-s still live in Penang.
