PETALING JAYA (July 24): An AEON BiG will officially open its doors tomorrow at The School, Jaya One in Section 13, Petaling Jaya in conjunction with the opening of the newly refurbished Level P2 entrance of The School, the first enrichment mall in the country.

It will be the first ‘hybrid’ AEON BiG in the country.

Jointly initiated by Jaya One and AEON BiG, the hypermarket’s concept features its sister company AEON’s assortment of food offerings such as the La Boheme Bakery, C’est La Vie Japan, Korea, and Taiwan-imported products, ready-to-eat and sushi selections.

According to Jaya One in a recent statement, the AEON BiG in Jaya One will also offer 80% fresh seafood which includes ocean-fresh fish directly imported from Norway.  

The hypermarket is the anchor tenant of the mall. Other tenants include health and beauty chain Guardian; F&B brands Tiger Sugar, Famous Amos, Sangkaya, and local farm-to-table tea store Fulleaf joining the ranks of other anchors such as Celebrity Fitness, BUMP Bouldering, and MR DIY.

After seven months of renovation, the P2 new entrance indicates the transformation of the mall that caters to the needs of the neighbourhood around Section 13.

Jaya One has been one of the pioneer developments in Section 13, and along with the new norm and social distancing practices, we felt that Jaya One as a whole needs to reinvent itself to stay ahead,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd, the developer of The School by Jaya One in the statement.

“We are excited for AEON BiG’s opening along with more openings of other brands as we hope to welcome our community back with something experiential amid social distancing orders. This whole approach is part of our journey toward improving customer experience and keeping pace with changing customer needs to stay relevant,” Wong added.

Aligning to the new normal post-MCO, customers can expect new initiatives such as drive-thru counters and personal shoppers to pick and purchase groceries from AEON BiG.
