RESIDENTS in Bukit Mertajam and the nearby areas have a new place to shop with the opening of Parkson Perda City Mall.
The departmental store is taking up 12,057 sq m (129,780 sq ft) of space cross three floors and carries over 378 brands.
Parkson Corporation Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Law Boon Eng said the new store was the company’s 41st store in the country.
“The previous one in Seberang Prai was opened in 2007 which was Parkson Sunway Carnival, so we are very happy to be back in this region to launch another project after eight long years.
“Our team has put together a very consumer-centric store with a wide variant of merchandise selections to cater to the Bukit Mertajam community and beyond.
“This store offers an extensive range of merchandise from various departments such as cosmetics and fragrance, ladies handbags and shoes, lingerie, men’s fashion and homes and household,” he said in his opening speech at the mall yesterday.
He added that the department store had launched its Parkson Card which is an exclusive privilege programme that is distinguished by tiers (Gold, Platinum and Diamond).
“It enables upfront discounts, exclusive privileges and benefits for shoppers with additional promotions across participating merchant partners from other industries including food and beverages, automobile, hospitality, health and lifestyle and more,” he said.
The card is a cross-boundary privilege card that can be used in Parkson Malaysia, Indonesia and soon in Parkson China, Vietnam and Myanmar.
“When card members swipe their Parkson Card during shopping, the value of their accumulated purchases can be used to redeem Parkson vouchers at the end of every quarter,” Law said.
In conjunction with the opening, customers are also able to enjoy five times BonusLink points for purchases made from now until Feb 1.
Apart from that, those who sign up for a free BonusLink membership from now until Feb 1 would be entitled to free 500 points.
Shoppers who spend above a certain amount would also be entitled to vouchers.
Other promotional activities include a clown performing balloon-sculpting in the afternoon from 3pm to 5pm today, tomorrow, Feb 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21 and 22.
