Queensbay Mall makeover

The Queensbay Mall in Penang spots a new look and feel, both in its interior and exterior, to retain its status as the chosen shopping destination for those in the Northern Region.

The upgrading costing RM30 million was completed in spite of the current sluggish economic atmosphere.

Among the “new look” upgrades include new flooring tiles, new ceiling, fully-refurbished washrooms, improved baby changing and nursing room, a new sheltered taxi stand, information counter with mobile phone charging facilities, new benches and new painting at the car park.

Shoppers can also look forward to the upgraded AEON supermarket and department store.

Latest additions are international brand outlets such as Michael Kors, Kate Spade New York and soon to be launched Chanel Cosmetics & Fragrance outlet.

“Opened in 2006, Queensbay Mall has a gross built-up area of 2.5 million square feet, we are the biggest mall in the state with AEON supermarket as our anchor tenant and another 400 local and international brands under one roof,” says Trish Ang, Queensbay Mall assistant centre manager.

“Customer traffic flow has grown by six per cent over the years for the mall to stay on top of the game”.

Queensbay Mall and Gurney Plaza general manager Selina Ng says the renovated mall features diverse retail, dining and entertainment outlets to cater for both locals and tourists.

“We are only 15 minutes’ away to the Penang International Airport and also to both the first and second bridges connecting the island.”

Signature events staged within the mall are the Penang International Fashion Week which has become one of the most sought after gatherings for locals as well as fashion designers and a bevy of local and international models.

“In conjunction with the new milestone and uplift, Queensbay Mall is organising an attractive contest for all shoppers this month.

Those who take part in the “Redefining Shopping” contest stand to win RM3,000 worth of cash vouchers and an instagram contest offers RM500 worth of shopping vouchers.
