Offering these brands to our future customers will allow us to deliver on our promise to provide the Klang Valley with an exceptional shopping destination," said Robert Spinks, development director of Setia City Mall in a press release on Thursday, Oct 27.

The Zara store will be located on the upper ground floor and will house over 16,000 square feet of the latest men's and woman's fashion trends.
