PETALING JAYA: Aeon Sunway Pyramid will be closing its doors on July 31 after 16 long years of being one of the shopping centre’s anchor tenants.
According to the official website of the shopping mall, Aeon will be gradually vacating the premises, with the first floor, ground floor, and lower ground 1 (LG1) vacated on July 2, and lower ground 2 (LG2) on July 31.
In its social media post, Sunway Pyramid extended its heartfelt appreciation to the retail chain, acknowledging its crucial role in supplying the community with essential goods throughout challenging times.
“Lion would like to thank Aeon for a memorable 16 years of journey that has provided the community with essential goods during the ups and downs,” it wrote.
“With a heavy heart, Lion would like to bid farewell and let’s go down memory lane together by visiting Aeon for the very last time before July 31,” it further said.
Meanwhile, the mall stated that a new grocery store will soon occupy the vacant space on the LG2 level. It is scheduled to open fully in October 2024.
The mall management also announced its intention to diligently develop its website, social media platforms, directories, and mobile app, to ensure that shoppers are well-informed about the development.
“With Aeon’s departure, we will enhance and repurpose the space to offer a wider range of high-quality offerings from unique tenants,” it said.
“Additionally, we will update you on the progress of the enhancement from time to time, especially with new offerings and aesthetics that would make Sunway Pyramid your unique lifestyle adventure,” it said.
To date, Aeon has 28 Aeon Malls, 35 Aeon stores, 8 Aeon MaxValue outlets, 62 Aeon Wellness outlets, 41 Daiso stores and 3 Komai-so stores.
