- The new Metrojaya store features brands such as Bill Keith, Yani Bakhtiar and Cynthia Tang, as well as brands that are only available at LaLaport BBCC.
KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 21): Metrojaya has officially opened its latest outlet in Southeast Asia's first LaLaport at the Bukit Bintang City Centre (BBCC) retail hub in Kuala Lumpur earlier on Wednesday (Sept 21).
The department store, which has a retail presence of over four decades, is run by Malayan United Industries Bhd (MUI)'s retail arm MJ Department Stores Sdn Bhd, which runs Metrojaya outlets in Malaysia.
The new Metrojaya store features brands such as Bill Keith, Yani Bakhtiar and Cynthia Tang, as well as brands that are only available at LaLaport BBCC.
At the grand opening event, Metrojaya department store chairman Andrew Khoo Boo Yeow told the media that the "next-generation store" is tapping into global trends to enable customers to achieve their aspirations for modern living with lifestyle products from brands like East India Company, Somerset Bay, Cape Cod and Living Quarters.
“We constantly refresh our selections and provide our customers with up-to-date products that will complement our customer's lifestyles today.
“We pay close attention to every detail, and this is true not just of our products but also of the atmosphere we create for our customers. We have incorporated some unique features in our store, which is the first in Metrojaya,” said Khoo, who is also MUI's chairman and CEO.
For example, Metrojaya LaLaport is the first Metrojaya outlet to have a coffee cart to enhance customers' shopping experience, as well as unique Instagrammable spots, he noted.
“The coffee cart will not just let our customers unwind but will also allow them to engage in fun workshops. This new feature will soon be available at [other Metrojaya outlets]. We welcome everyone to be part of the excitement and enjoy their time here with us.”
Metrojaya LaLaport is also accessible via public transportation, with access to Hang Tuah LRT and KL Monorail stations.
