PETALING JAYA (Dec 2): MyTOWN Shopping Centre (MyTOWN), which will open for business on Feb 16 next year, is targeting to attract two million footfalls in its first month of operations.
Jointly developed by Boustead Holdings Bhd and Ikano Ptd Ltd, MyTOWN is located on Jalan Cochrane, Kuala Lumpur and is structurally connected to IKEA Cheras.
With a net-lettable area (NLA) of 1.1 million sq ft, MyTOWN has a capacity for more than 400 stores. The shopping centre announced its grand opening date during its tenant engagement event recently.
“The design of the building, the tenant mix, the facilities and services are all carefully thought out to give shoppers a ‘Customer Journey’ that will make them want to come back to MyTOWN again and again,” said MyTOWN director Datuk Koo Hock Fee in a statement today.
He said the shopping centre has the potential to reach over five million shoppers residing within a 30-minute drive and targets 28 million footfalls for 2017.
