Malaysians in the Klang Valley can now shop from Sunway Pyramid from the comfort of their own homes following the launch of its online store. The platform is the result of a partnership with local delivery service provider, MatDespatch, and is meant to provide a safer shopping experience for customers for this Hari Raya as well as to aid small local businesses.
You can browse through more than 100 brands from various categories on the platform, such as beauty, fashion, home décor, healthcare, footwear, food and beverage, and digital lifestyle. Brands available include Armani Exchange, Gintell, Brooks, and Barry Smith.
According to the chief operating officer of Sunway Malls, Kevin Tan, the sunwaypyramid.com online platform is the group’s latest effort at going digital. With this, customers can shop more conveniently, whereas retailers are also able to boost their businesses.
“The past two months have definitely been a challenging period for us all, and we wanted to give our retailers the opportunity to reach their customers within a few clicks,” said Tan, referring to the movement control order (MCO) and conditional movement order control (CMCO) period. He further added that not all retailers have the capability to establish an online presence and hoped that the platform will help strengthen their business operations for greater survivability post-MCO.
The mall is also running some promotions to kick off the launch of the online platform. For instance, you can get exclusive cash vouchers and a set of eco-friendly metal straws when you spend a minimum of RM200 via the online platform. You can also earn two times Pals points with every purchase that you make on the online store, although this is capped at RM10 at one transaction per day.
Additionally, the online store will be hosting a 72-hour flash sale between 29 May to 1 June 2020, so mark your calendars! Don’t forget to tap into the perks of your credit cards when you’re online shopping too.
Sunway Pyramid is not the only mall in Malaysia to have set up an online store. 1 Utama was the first mall in the country to spearhead such a move, officially launching its online platform, ONESHOP, in January 2019, before launching its 1Pay e-wallet in September 2019.
