RM500 million Aeon Melaka now open

MELAKA'S biggest shopping centre, the RM500 million AEON Bandaraya Melaka, opened its doors today.

The soft opening was officiated by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.

The shopping complex, spread over approximately 126,162 sq m (1,358,000 sq ft), was originally scheduled for opening on Dec 17 last year. The opening was rescheduled due to a gas explosion mishap at its food court area, three days before the opening, which killed two workers and injured 20 others.

AEON Co (M) Bhd has since taken the necessary measures to upgrade work at the affected food court section and this is due for completion by next month.
"We are ready to commence business by providing shopping comfort and convenience," the company said a media statement.

Its Chairman, Datuk Abdullah Mohd Yusof, has targeted an annual turnover of between RM150 million to RM200 million for the shopping complex.

Meanwhile, Mohd Ali said AEON Bandaraya Melaka would help boost the number of tourists to the historical city, which recorded more than eight million visitors last year.

"With AEON Bandaraya, it is hoped visitors will spend more time, including their nights here, just to do shop," he added.

The complex has ample parking space with over 2,200 bays. Free parking is available from today until March 7.
