    • Fun fact: did you know at least 20% of urban Malaysians spend their weekends in shopping malls?

  • But some economic experts are forecasting the buying habits of Malaysians to change soon, given the current economic climate

    • A retail expert told The Malaysian Insight that some malls are facing hard times as shoppers are slowly becoming more cautious about their spending. Retailers have also taken a step back in their business expansion plans.

      “With the current market condition, it is good if a mall can open with 80% occupancy rate in the first month," he said.
