Look out for fantastic bargains in the early part of the year. Knock-down prices are everywhere as Malaysians wind down from the Chinese New Year festivity in February and prepare for the next celebration, Hari Raya Aidilfitri, in July. Stores nation-wide entice shoppers during this in-between period with huge, attractive offers and a host of promotions and activities. Schools also take a break from 12 to 20 March, a great time to take the kids for a shopping spree and a short holiday. March therefore is a perfect month to hold the national-level 1Malaysia Super Sale. This sale campaign replaces the 1Malaysia Grand Prix Sale which was held previously to coincide with the Formula One Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix in Sepang.
The shopping action continues this season with not only super offers, super rewards and super surprises at malls all over the country but also a long line-up of events and activities for everyone. An outing to the malls promises a fun time for all. Both the young and the young-at-heart can enjoy much more than shopping at many of Malaysia’s contemporary and integrated lifestyle shopping malls. Cool and relaxing ambience is ideal for chilling out while numerous food outlets from casual kiosks and food courts to specialty restaurants tempt shoppers to indulge in all kinds of culinary delights.
The malls also offer endless fun for those who love some terrific action. There are recreational and sports outlets for all kinds of interests – indoor rock climbing, archery, thematic games rooms, thrilling rides, amusing arcades and much more. Cinemas and 3D theatres play the latest films for entertainment while event organisers lure visitors with special expositions, workshops and other activities. Spas, massage, beauty and hair salons, gyms, children’s playground, as well as landscaped gardens in the indoors and outdoors and numerous other facilities make an outing to the malls truly invigorating.
Check out 1Malaysia Super Sale special offers, events and happenings throughout the country. There are also exclusive rewards for tourists, such as tourist privilege cards, tax-free shopping, gift redemptions with purchases and GST refund at exit points.
