PETALING JAYA: Metrojaya Bhd expects its MJ by Metrojaya department store at The Curve shopping centre, which was relocated from Section 14 PJ, to chalk up 20% more sales in its first year of operations, said chief executive officer Robert Heng. 

“The company invested about RM4mil to set up the 60,000-sq-ft fashion concept store, which focuses on demand from men and women,'' he told a media briefing yesterday. 

Heng said the new store was unique as it offered exclusive brands and services, including Bath and Bloom, Intoxi Kate, L'Institute Lancome, OPI Nail Studio and Dermalogica Skin Spa.  

It also carries existing brands such as Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss, Inizio and Hush Puppies

“The new store aims to enrich customers' shopping experience by providing a variety of products and services,” he added. 

On the company's plan this year, Heng said: “We are negotiating with The Curve to set up a household store.” 

He said Metrojaya also planned to set up two department stores and five specialist stores soon. He, however, did not elaborate on this. 

“We plan to invest RM10mil to set up more specialist stores,” he added. 

The company also intends to set up MJ by Metrojaya stores in Sabah and Sarawak within the next five years.
