Klippa Shopping Centre: A New Retail Destination At Batu Kawan, Penang
In case you’re wondering why Ikano Centres sounds familiar, well, this is because it is part of Ikano Retail, which owns IKEA stores in five countries as well as shopping centres that are anchored by IKEA. Now, let’s take a closer look at Klippa, shall we?
For starters, Klippa means rock or friend in Swedish and is the perfect wordplay to describe Batu Kawan. It is conveniently located with direct access to the Second Penang Bridge and has a seamless connection to IKEA.
Next, Klippa will offer a unique retail experience with an integrated shopping centre spanning 1.6 million sqft of Gross Leasable Area (GLA) and housing over 300 brands. So if you enjoy a session or two of retail therapy, then be on the lookout for this!
The first phase of Klippa was launched in December 2019 with 20 brands over 80,000 sqft. In November 2021, a unique F&B drive-thru was introduced with its first tenant being a McDonald’s drive-thru.
Soon, Penangites can look forward to brands such as TMG Plus Supermarket, Mr DIY, Mr TOY, KFC, Tealive drive-thru, A&W drive-thru, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Kenny Rogers, ZUS Coffee, Chicago Chicken City and a petrol station with an integrated drive-thru Starbucks.
Who’s Excited For This?
With the opening of Klippa, there will be 5,000 job opportunities available to the public. What do you think of this? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
