Are y’all excited Melawatians? The brand new Melawati Mall is set to open on 26th July (Wednesday).
After a slight delay, residents living in Taman Melawati can finally look forward to the area’s first major shopping mall. In anticipation of the grand opening, we’ve list down popular outlets that patrons can look forward to.
1. Fitness First
Thinking of signing up for a new gym membership? Fitness First’s new branch is offering an early bird promotion (they call it the Attractive Founder Membership Home Fee) for those who register early. Besides being able to enjoy a cheap monthly fee, new members will also receive attractive goodies.
We were informed that Fitness First Melawati Mall will only open in October but gymers can register as soon as 29th July onwards. For more info, check out their web page here.
2. GSC Cinema
In addition to TGV Cinema in Wangsa Walk and MBO Cinema in Setapak Central (formerly known as KL Festival City), those living in Taman Melawati or nearby will have another option for entertainment. With the opening of another GSC Cinema, you don’t even need to travel far for movie dates anymore! Melawati Mall will be featuring GSC’s 10-screen cinema, which includes 1 Atmos hall, with more than 1,400 seats.
We’ve previously compiled a list of new GSC Cinemas here.
