When asked about opening up an entertainment and lifestyle hub in the royal city of Shah Alam, where previously even cinemas are prohibited, Ms. Wallaya Chirathivat, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of CPN commented, “It is time for the city to open up and for Shah Alam to enter a new phase. I have spoken to the people in Kuala Lumpur and they think that Shah Alam prohibits liquor and pork. I would say that the city is evolving now, and Shah Alam is now open to everyone.”
Central i-City shopping centre’s exclusive features include the first SOGO flagship department store outside of Kuala Lumpur, the first Village Grocer supermarket in Malaysia to feature the Royal Thai Project products and the largest Samsung Onyx display in the world, in TGV Cinemas.
