SURIA KLCC Mall has reopened its doors and is ready to welcome the community back to kick start the Hari Raya Aidilfitri festivities after the Covid-19 pandemic forced its temporary closing earlier this year.
Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd CEO Andrew Brien said the group was happy to have visitors and shoppers back in its stores, especially during this time as Hari Raya will be one of a kind for Malaysians this year.
“As we pick ourselves back up and return to the ‘new norm’, we will continue to adhere to the Ministry of Health’s stringent guidelines to ensure the mall is clean and safe for both shoppers and staff,” he said in a statement.
Brien said preventive measures to protect shoppers such as hand sanitisers, daily body temperature screenings, as well as an increased number of cleaning and sanitation at high contact surface points are being conducted diligently.
“We are constantly cleaning the areas and equipment that have direct contact with visitors especially escalators, elevators and other common areas as the safety and health of our visitors are paramount. We are also maintaining a two-metre social-distancing effort, to ensure a secure environment for people,” Brien said.
He said despite this being a challenging time, he wanted to thank the community for its support, as the group continues to be vigilant in implementing every measure possible to ensure business operations continue uninterrupted. Brien added that all stores and food and beverage outlets will be open except for some specialty stores.
“The outlets that will be closed will include the cinema, gym, both hair salons and barbers, as well as spa and reflexology stores, until further notice,” Brien said.
In order to reward shoppers, the group will be giving out an exclusive L’Occitane gift set between May 15 and May 25, 2020, if one shops at any of the specialty stores with minimum spending of RM500.
Meanwhile, Alamanda Shopping Centre has also resumed business, as well as Mesra Mall in Terengganu.
The group said visitors to Alamanda will be given a scarf between May 14 and May 25, 2020, as a reward for spending a minimum of RM150 at specialty stores, while the East Coast patrons will be enticed with a lovely ceramic oil burner.
The group added that it is keen to embrace a brand-new lifestyle routine in line with staying safe and healthy.
Suria KLCC will operate from 10am till 8pm daily throughout the Conditional Movement Control Order.
