I was at the One City USJ recently to participate in the Grand Launch for Kids Gallery, the first kid's departmental store there!!! And it was really a pretty grand affair with celebrities and celebrity mums gracing the event along with VIPs and also the media.
One City Properties makes its entry into retail business with the opening of Kids Gallery, the first ever departmental store catering specially to children.
The Kids Gallery occupies a whopping 15,500 sq feet of shopping space which is equivalent to 9 shop lots. You can find a wide range of children’s merchandise from clothing to shoes, accessories, books, bags and even to bedding here at the Kids Gallery.
Shopping with parents can be pretty boring for kids at times. Kids Gallery’s concept makes it so that shopping will now be a fun filled experience for both parents and children.
Being a children friendly store, customers will be greeted with attractive colours and design as they step in. There are also interesting photo corners and 3D elements around the store for kids to have their pictures taken. The changing rooms are also fitted with selfie elements whereby children will have the opportunity to pose with the attire that they are trying on or even snap a photo to see themselves in a new outfit.
“Kids Gallery aims to tap into the country’s growing market of aspirational yet price-conscious shoppers, by hosting a wide variety of international, local, and exclusive brands in an exciting shopping environment. We believe that the shopping experience is the new frontier for competitive differentiation,” said Mr. Sim Hai Yeun 沈海韻, Retail Director of One City Properties in his speech at the official opening of Kids Gallery.
At Kids Gallery children will be encourage to partake in the buying process. They can pay for their own merchandise as the themed cashier counters are lowered to a kid friendly level. For the convenience of nursing mothers, Kids Gallery has a fully equipped feeding and diaper changing room adjoining the restroom and the children’s play area.
Mothers can also breastfeed or shop in peace here at the Kids Gallery while their children are occupied at the play area which also has a television to entertain them with cartoons. Both the Male and Female restrooms within the store are also child friendly as the sinks, urinals and toilet bowls are all placed at a lower level.
With an investment of RM3 mil. put into setting up of the store, Kids Gallery will complement the surrounding amenities such as the office suites, office tower, business class hotel, F&B outlets, cinema, gym, karaoke and supermarket. Kids Gallery will cater to the needs of children from as young as infants up to the age of 17 years.
The official launch event was co-hosted by 9 year old starlet, Mia Sara who left guests and even me , myself in awe with her ability to host. She is simply adorable and so talented.
During the launch guests were also entertained with an energetic kids hip hop dance performance choreographed by Alam who captained the team that won the first “So You Think You Can Dance Malaysia” competition.
And seriously these kids are really outstanding. I have rarely seen a better dance performance by even adults....
A lion dance troupe was around to usher in the good luck and prosperity at the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
The lion dance troupe here was pretty jaw dropping with a lion climbing up a very tall pole which left spectators like yours truly at the edge of their seats.
We were also pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the God of Prosperity handing out red packets/hongbao/angpow with a gold chocolate coin and a sweet in it.
Kids Gallery currently offer more than 30 popular brands that are also affordable and of great quality.
