Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to the launch event of Cheras LeisureMall’s new MRT Linkbridge and an extended, revamped mall space leading up to the Taman Mutiara MRT station. These upgraded features are part of the mall’s ongoing initiative to enhance shoppers’ experience at Cheras LeisureMall, giving them more compelling reasons to shop, dine and enjoy happy moments with their family and friends.
The redevelopment exercise at Cheras LeisureMall, which commenced in March 2017, involved the construction of a 60-metre linkbridge connecting the newly opened Taman Mutiara MRT Station to the existing Level 1 of Cheras LeisureMall. It is also the first elevated pedestrian linkbridge with air conditioning that connects MRT Station to an adjacent shopping mall. The linkbridge enhances connectivity and accessibility of the mall to customers within and outside of the Cheras area, making it more convenient for shoppers to visit the mall.
The project also saw the extension and refurbishment of both the Level 1 and Level 2 LeisurePlex of Cheras LeisureMall, adding on 15,000 sq. ft. of net lettable area aimed at offering a greater variety of retail and F&B choices for customers.
I found my favourite Family Mart at Cheras LeisureMall, along with other new outlets like Mr. Dakgalbi, ChicKing, OneDeLand, Mizudo Hot Pot, Kim-zen Restaurant, ManKwonWhaBap, Natural Health Farm, Like Time and Hoco. Shoppers can also look forward to the upcoming opening of OldTown White Coffee, Go Noodle House and Boat Noodle to satisfy their cravings for Asian-themed cuisines.
Supermodel Amber Chia, Radio DJ Liang Jin Long, artiste Nina Kho and YouTuber Akiyo were also there to grace the launch event.
In conjunction with the launch event, the first 200 shoppers to commute to Cheras LeisureMall by MRT can redeem a special edition Cheras LeisureMall Touch ‘n Go card with exclusive shopping privileges. Shoppers who join in the celebration also stand a chance to win attractive prizes worth more than RM10,000 which includes a smartphone, a watch, IT gadgets, as well as food vouchers by OneDeLand, ChicKing, Taipei Taipei, and ManKwonWhaBap.
“Shopping trends and experience as we know have changed, and customers today are seeking for distinguished and unrivalled shopping experiences as reasons for them to come back. Therefore we embarked on this refurbishment, and being a community-centric mall, the additional space will be ideal for more events, promotional activities and community-driven initiatives that will bring people together for various causes,” said Chew Hwei Yeow, Chief Operating Officer (Property Division) of PPB Group Berhad at the launch event.
“PPB is planning to grow its retail arm with a few retail centre projects in the pipeline – all addressing customers’ demand for unique shopping experience and a quality lifestyle. We have and will continue to delight our customers with fresh and exciting experiences in our existing and upcoming retail centres. With these in place, we are optimistic over our upcoming developments, despite the challenging market,” Chew added.
In the mall’s constant efforts to enhance shoppers’ lifestyle experience, Cheras LeisureMall also unveiled a total facelift of the mall along with a rejuvenated logo. With a newly painted exterior facade in dynamic colours and visual appeal, the mall keeps abreast with the changing retail trends and customer expectations, while making it more exciting for customers to visit.
Cheras LeisureMall will also be launching its own loyalty programme in the near future as part of the mall’s initiatives to reward its loyal shoppers, while giving them more reasons to visit the mall. What’s more, the loyalty card can be used across all shopping centres and retail outlets under PPB Group Berhad, the operators of Cheras LeisureMall.
