The martial arts star proved his philanthropy by vowing to give two per cent of all earnings from the store to help the underprivileged children.

"Each year, I would look for ways to raise money for charity to help needy people. Why? Because when I was young, I was very poor and many people had helped me get to where I am today," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

"I am doing my part to repay their kindness to me," he said.

Chan has also opened stores in Singapore and Malaysia.
