Shah Alam, 22 March 2016
DYMM Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Al-Haj, officiated the opening of AEON Mall Shah Alam-the 25th AEON Mall and 31st AEON Store in Malaysia-today.
Going beyond its offer of pleasant retail experiences, AEON Mall Shah Alam prides itself in its camera-worthy aesthetical features. The design of the new addition to the Shah Alam landscape is inspired by an iconic landmark of the community-the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque. The highlight of its decor, however, lies in its fusion of Japanese and Islamic designs, and a one-of-a-kind four-season concept inspired by Japan’s seasonal changes: summer (natsu), autumn (aki), winter (fuyu), and spring (haru).
Speaking about AEON Mall Shah Alam, Chairman of AEON Co (M) Bhd, YBhg Dato’ Abdullah Mohd Yusof, added, “At AEON, we want to do more than just be a shopping space. In line with our Do Mall campaign, which was launched last year, we want to boost our customer’s experience – focusing on 5 pillars (Do Yummy, Do Style, Do Together, Do Exciting and Do Fun) and that means offering the best in food, fashion, community activities, shopping experiences and entertainment. We seek to position AEON Mall Shah Alam as THE lifestyle shopping experience mall for the 650,000 people who call Shah Alam home.”
Fulfilling its Do Mall promise, the 1.5 million square feet “Cultural Destination Mall” offers an exciting mix of 160 tenants, which includes international retailers such as H&M, Uniqlo and the 2nd Index Living Mall in the country. Where food is concerned, customers are spoiled for choice at the mall’s Gourmet Table area, which features a wide range of dining options including a delicatessen and a bakery.
For the convenience of its shoppers, a refrigerated locker service is also available for free, allowing them to go about their activities without having to worry about their frozen or perishable groceries. Other amenities include a 2,500-lot car park, shopping cart lockers, premier prayer rooms for Muslims, a children-only restroom as well as the kid-favourite, “Kidzoona” Fantasy Train.
Guided by a “Customers First” philosophy, we always strive to do better, so that they will receive a fuss-free customer service experience. According to YBhg Dato’ Abdullah, AEON has made it mandatory for every retail employee to undergo stringent in-house training to enhance their skills.
In conjunction with its grand opening, AEON Mall Shah Alam is organising a series of Japanese and local cultural activities until 10 April. Visitors to the mall can expect to be treated to a Waidako drum performance, kimono showcase, Japanese cosplay and Japanese doll-making demonstration. Within this period, shoppers will also get to enjoy exciting tenant promotions.
