What’s fun about my job is that I get to always chat with the brand owners stocked on FashionValet. From there, I get an insight of their highs and lows and we always work together to help elevate their brand name, online and offline.
And even in this tech era where e-commerce is booming, you still can’t ignore the power of physical presence. When you have a brand, people still ask you “Kedai kat mana?”. And you go “Beli online je.” And they go, “Ala, tapi makcik tak tau macam mana nak beli online.” Hehe. *insert my mom and mil as those makciks*
I really think to elevate brand image and credibility, you still need to have a physical store as well as online presence. If you have both, it’d be awesome for your brand. And I keep thinking about this when I think about dUCk. Do we need to open a store? Where? How much will it cost? What if no one comes? Etc etc.
So location is always key.
I came across this new project by Mah Sing Group Berhad and whether or not I take a lot or two, I thought I’d share with you in case this is something you might be interested in and the location is your target market.
The Star Avenue Lifestyle Mall.
The first lifestyle shopping mall with one-stop shopping, dining and entertainment, located along Jln Sungai Buloh.
The daily traffic that passed by is more than 300,000 and there is an upcoming HELP campus with an estimated 13,000 students so this mall is a very promising one, in terms of traffic. There is even an upcoming development of a whopping 3,300 acres of RRIM.
Public transport wise, Star Avenue is located 2 minutes away from a proposed MRT station. So you can imagine that this will be the mall that people will meet for meetings, meals and gatherings or simply to do their shopping!
If you’re a retailer or a potential one, you might want to consider this one as Star Avenue is open for lease. If interested, call 012-5049827 / 013-3646273 or visit their website at www.staravenue.com.my. No harm checking it out before every lot gets leased out!
Good luck with your businesses!
