Different generation of Ipoh citizen would give you different answer when being asked about this building. To me, this is the first supermarket I know, namely Beauty Supermarket. It was once the most popular spot of shopping in Ipoh back in 1970's-80's. But I can't remember in which year Beauty ceased operation & later turned into Popular Book Store, then Hai-O Store until today. The interior scene of the 4-storey Beauty Supermarket is still in my memory, but it will never come back to the real world.
