Since March 2017, IPC Shopping Centre has been under redevelopment to strengthen its presence in the market. Phase One of the project is now completed, and shoppers can check out IPC’s reopened LG1 and LG2 floors.
IPC Shopping Centre Reopens LG1 and LG2 floors
“The redevelopment is part of our plan to futureproof the centre,” said Thomas Malmberg, Shopping Centre Director at IKEA Southeast Asia. “We’re not afraid to make changes to achieve what we believe in: a bigger, brighter, and greener future for us and our shoppers.”
With the redevelopment, the centre will also be returning to its roots, sporting a new look with distinctly Scandinavian touches. In celebration of the opening, IPC Shopping Centre will play host to fun activities such as a kids’ bento making workshop, face painting, and a balloon sculpture giveaway.
LG1 will now be known as Foodland, complete with a new concept and design. It welcomes back popular tenants such as Uncle Lim, De Irrfan’s Café, and Noodle Shack. IPC Shopping Centre is also excited to play host to new tenants such as AEON Wellness and Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul; Ben’s Independent Grocer will be opening in October. Both i-Alter and Thule will be making a return to LG2.
On top of the new design, IPC Shopping Centre has also invested in a leading sustainable dishwashing and cleaning system as part of the centre’s dedication to a greener future. This ensures that the process is as safe, eflicient, and ecological as possible.
More changes that shoppers can look forward to are upgrades to the Recycling and BuyBack Centre (RBBC). The RBBC will be relocated to a more convenient, strategic location, still on LG1, to better serve customers. IPC Shopping Centre was the first shopping centre in Malaysia to house an RBBC, and has set a benchmark for others, paving a way for a better and greener future.
IPC Shopping Centre is prioritising family-friendly features with its redevelopment and will be creating an all-new kids’ play area, featuring a sweets and confectionery space called Funland, on Level 2. This will also be home to the second Young Chefs Academy in Malaysia – offering fun and creative cooking classes for kids.
Returning tenants, such as Harvey Norman, are looking forward to the changes. “The redevelopment effort has given us the opportunity to launch our new duplex concept,” said Eddy Ng, Lead General Manager of Harvey Norman Malaysia. “We’ve grown with IPC over the years and are excited to be a part of this new direction. We believe that this upgrade will answer the needs of our current and future customers, building towards a fun-filled shopping experience for all.”
“We consider our presence in IPC Shopping Centre a good way to expand our reach into growing neighbourhoods,” said David Tseng, Managing Director of Ben’s Independent Grocer. “We pride ourselves on our promise of delivering the finest produce to our customers, and look forward to serving the good people of Mutiara Damansara this coming October.” I’m definitely looking forward to this as I’m a big fan of B.I.G. (pun intended!).
By the way, I’ve gotten some super tasty breakfast treats from IPC, B.I.G. and Famous Amos to get me through the day. Check them out!
Everyone are welcome to explore the renewed LG floors to get a taste of what the new IPC Shopping Centre has got in store.
