A 10-Year success story, Kluang Mall has made the Kluang district a regional shopping destination.
Welcoming Year 10 in style, Kluang Mall offers a place where families can shop, dine, be entertained and enjoy life. The 76,180sq m (820,000sq ft) mall owned by Majupadu Development Sdn Bhd led to a retail explosion in the area, including neighbouring districts to become the catalyst and the leading shopping mall in Central Johor.
Teenagers shopping for back-to-school outfits in the Kluang community retail corridor have no knowledge of what it was like before Kluang Mall opened on the eve of Christmas in 2008.
The shopping scene, for years, was headed south to Johor Baru and people might even drive to Singapore or up north to Melaka and Kuala Lumpur for a larger selection of quality merchandise.
Fast forward to today, an enclosed suburbia shopping mall sprang up and paved the way for four mini anchors from three continents – H&M, Uniqlo, Cotton On and Brands Outlet. Meanwhile, Ampang Superbowl, equipped with 36 lanes, is the largest bowling centre in a shopping mall in Johor.
Kluang Mall is also home to international coffee chains such as Starbucks and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf as well as fast-casual restaurants for a range of demographics to enjoy.
“The millennium generation in the Kluang and neighbouring districts is raised with Kluang Mall,” said executive director Tey Fui Kien.
“Kluang Mall is part of their identity of Kluang and it’s how they view the retail landscape.”
The mall is celebrating 10 fantastic years by having a grand lucky draw with prizes such as the Nissan Navarra pick-up truck as part of the giveaway as its way of giving a little back and saying thank you to valued shoppers.
Tey said Kluang Mall continues to thrive because of the emphasis on constant growth and refreshment. The team has helped define the success of the retail destination in Central Johor.
Christmas is just around the corner and Kluang Mall has planned a month packed with activities to welcome the season. Shoppers will be entertained with various stage performances, interactive activities as well as meet and greet famous characters and Santa Claus.
