Travel Agents Seek Another Site To Continue Operations
The order, issued by the Marine Department as owner of the terminal to make way for a luggage and storage facility for tourists, also affects about 20 employees.
Ironically, the agencies and shops are not offered another place to relocate their business.
A tour and travel agent, Mohd Mansorhan Sahak, 40, said he was told to vacate the premises which he rented for RM350 a month since two years ago by March 31 by Marine Department officers who visited him yesterday.
"They told me that the contract issued in February 2013 will not be renewed. We hope that the Marine Department can provide another site for us to continue our operations.
"The closure of the kiosks does not jell with the Visit Malaysia Year 2014 that we are promoting," he told reporters at the Kuala Kedah Ferry Terminal Wednesday.
A sundry shop operator, Rokiah Ahmad, 54, a mother of five who has been doing operating at the terminal for the past three years, said it would be difficult to find another cheap place to rent nearby to continue her business.
