THE National ICT Association of Malaysia (Pikom) will be launching its first ever Pikom ICT Mall at CapSquare Kuala Lumpur on May 27.
Bandar Raya Developments Berhad (BRBD) group retail operations head John Sironic said, “This is the only ICT mall which has a theatre.
“We also have our own parking lot which can hold up to 2,000 cars.”
The CapSquare mall was opened in November 2007. However, due to its lack of success, BRBD joined forces with Pikom to create what is now known as the Pikom ICT Mall CapSquare, which has been renovated since October last year.
The mall has 102 kiosks taken up by a variety of companies.
Among them are Canon, iStudy by Apple, Lenovo’s concept and flagship store and telcos Digi and Maxis. The i-Xperience, the first-ever concept store for Imation, TDK and Memorex Worldwide is also located in the mall.
Tech stores aside, the mall will also have food and beverage outlets such as Starbucks, Modesto’s and Subway, as well as a gym and a supermarket.
“Pikom ICT Mall will be selling only certified original products with guaranteed after-sales service. Though this is a premium mall, there will be special offers to ensure that customers get value-for-money products,” Sironic said.
Various activities have been lined up for the grand launch. Top on the list is the screening of sci-fi movies such as Avatar, Trans-formers, Star Wars and Real Steel at the outdoor theatre from 8pm onwards, on May 25 and 26.
To pull the crowd further, BRDB has arranged for local celebrity Joey G to play host and performers like Anuar Zain, ManHanD, Instant Cafe Theatre and Upin & Ipin to entertain the guests.
Sci-fi characters like Darth Vader, Tron and Stormtroopers will also make an appearance.
The first 50 customers will receive iStudy’s RM1 deals on accessories. Additionally, the first 100 customers will be given Sennheiser earphones and a goody bag. Visitors can expect a variety of offers and promotions at the complex.
There will be a contest and lucky draw too for Facebook fans and shoppers that purchase products worth RM100 cumulatively or in a single receipt between now and May 27.
Some of the prizes include the iPad 3, an Alienware laptio, Macbook Air and more.
The mall is open daily between 10.30am and 9.30pm (theatre excluded). For details, visit www.capsquare.com.my
