KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 22): IPC Shopping Centre in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, has unveiled its new anchor tenant, MR DIY Plus, as well as a line-up of additional food and beverage (F&B) offerings that are expected to be opened this year, according to its operator Ikano Corp Sdn Bhd in a press statement on Thursday.

MR DIY Plus, which will join the other anchor tenants at IPC Shopping Centre such as Ben’s Independent Grocer, Harvey Norman and Spotlight when it opens this quarter, will be a 4-in-1 concept store occupying 23,779 sq ft and will feature brands like EMTOP, MR DIY, MR Dollar and MR Toy. The store will be designed with an European highstreet concept and will have features such as an interactive wall, eco-corner and children’s workshop, the statement said.

As for the upcoming F&B tenants, they include Canton Boy, Mr Vegan, Pezzo Pizza, BabaBoy, BananaBro, Bread History & Sandwich Box, KPOP Madang, Taste of Medan, Noodle King House as well as a Western restaurant with a bar concept adjacent to Canton Boy. These offerings will join the other F&B brands such as Jom Cha by Farm Fresh, Squid Boy, Dunkin' Donuts, and Mee Tarik Warisan that were introduced last year.

IPC Shopping Centre general manager Karyn Lim said in the statement, “Curating the right tenant mix is essential to successful shopping centre operations. At IPC Shopping Centre, our commitment goes beyond mere occupancy, our vision is to create a better everyday life for many people. That is why we strive to curate an experiential shopping atmosphere, leveraging a well-balanced mix of lifestyle, dining and retail options to transform the centre into a quintessential destination transcending the conventional retail space."

According to the statement, IPC Shopping Centre has also repurposed and transformed some of its spaces, including the Level 1 Link Bridge to house the Träffas Work Pods (fully furnished private work pods for rent that can also be transformed into a photo/recording studio, interview room or study corner). The Link Bridge space can also be transformed into pop-up stores for community bazaars or an exhibition space.

It added that in the coming months, IPC Shopping Centre will be converting part of its alfresco area on the ground floor into a glasshouse.

Lim said, “The transformation of these spaces presents an opportunity for shopping centres like IPC to elevate the overall shopping experience from the moment of arrival to departure, and every aspect in between. By identifying gaps in the local retail industry, we are able to strategically curate our tenant mix and leverage our existing infrastructure to distinguish ourselves from our competitors and establish the centre as a preferred and distinctive destination.

"This approach not only enhances the satisfaction of existing visitors but opens new doors for a fresh array of tenants and customers, ultimately contributing to increased footfall traffic and sustained business growth," she added.
