The POPULAR outlet at Lee Rubber Building is closing its doors after 16 years. The outlet in the heart of KL Chinatown, next to Petaling Street, has been an iconic landmark and part of the colourful mosaic of Chinatown history.

The first Popular outlet was opened at Damansara Jaya in 1983 which was then closed down due to slow sales. Then in 1984, the second outlet was opened at Jalan Hang Lekir (not Jalan Sultan) and the one at Lee Rubber Building opened in 2003.
