Parkson Will Close Down Its 9-Year-Old Outlet In Melaka Mall Next Month
A Chinese daily recently revealed that local department chain Parkson will be shutting down its outlet in Melaka Mall
Full-time staff members were given the option to relocate to other outlets in the country
While some of them have taken up the offer, others chose to quit and seek employment elsewhere.
Customers who used to frequent the outlet told China Press that the closure was a long time coming due to stiff competition from other department stores and the poor economy. Some patrons also added that Parkson has been charging high prices for their goods, causing them to opt for cheaper options.
News of the closure comes days after netizens speculated that the outlet might be shutting down soon
