Baca ini untuk tahu barang2 apa ada di JPO nanti. Rasanya orang2 biasa2 macam aku tak mampu nak beli barang2 dia. Setakat tengok, belek dan pegang bolehlah. Orang2 macam aku ke TESCO, GIANTS dan JAYA JUSCO cukuplah.
Genting plans more attractions for Johor Premium Outlets
KULAIJAYA: Genting Bhd is planning to develop additional attractions such as a hotel and an international water theme park to complement its Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) here.
Chairman and chief executive Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay said it had conducted the study a year ago, and if there was a need, the attractions would be built in the second development stage of the JPO.
“We have not looked at how much will be invested on the additional attractions and they will be build according to market needs,” he said yesterday.
Lim was speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony of the JPO outlet in Genting Indahpura mixed development township here by Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman.
The project is a 50:50 joint venture between Genting’s 54.6% owned subsidiary Genting Plantations Bhd and Premium Outlets, a division of US-based Simon Property Group.
The RM149mil outlet with 330,000 sq ft built up area on a 17.8ha site, is the first of its kind in South-East Asia – there are 52 outlets in the United States, Mexico, Japan and South Korea.
Expected to open in the third quarter of 2011, it offers a wide selection of branded items such as designer fashions, sportswear, children’s wear, jewellery, shoes and fashion accessories at attractive discounted prices.
“We have plans to bring visitors at our Resorts World Sentosa and also Singaporeans via shuttle bus services to shop for branded items here,” said Lim.
He said apart from Singaporeans, the company would be targeting at rich Indonesians living in the republic and Indonesians from Jakarta and cities in Sumatra and Thais to come here.
Meanwhile, Ghani said the number of flights landing at Senai International Airport nearby, would be increased to cater the rise of visitors.
He said AirAsia in principle, had agreed to increase its flight frequencies to Senai when the JPO opened next year and in 2012, when Legoland Theme Park started operations.
