Apart from the bevvy of Mrs Universe 2014 delegates present, the mall’s top management was also out in full force. Gracing the event were Mr. Geoffrey de Drouas, ikon Connaught Representative and Datuk Albert Chiang, Director of Podium Outlet. A lion dance performance dutifully ushered guests and members of the media for the first time into the main concourse of the mall.

“This area has been booming tremendously for the retail sector. It’s definitely where we want to be,” says Geoffrey. “We believe in creating a premium shopping experience but with merchants that provide good value for money to customers. We’re banking on giving the suburban population in Cheras exactly what they need in terms of goods and services. Now, we’re working to build up awareness with the Mrs Universe 2014 delegates, to make people know about us and bring about that sense of anticipation of what what’s next in the pipeline.”

And there was certainly good reason to cheer. This soft launch will soon be followed by a more extravagant grand opening. And the reason for such grand revelries with Geoffrey, Datuk Albert and the lovely Mrs Universe 2014 delegates on stage to officiate the soft opening. A delightful lunch was also served as guests were taken on a tour of the premises.

With the soft launch underway, the appropriate tenant mix of fashion, lifestyle, gadgets, food, beverage and entertainment operators are already preparing their new home for the eventful grand opening. Last but not least, a wellness and fitness hub on the fourth floor on the top floor offers shoppers the pleasure of enjoying relaxing spa treatments or breaking a sweat at the gym.
