Suria Sabah Shopping Mall was officially opened by Head of State, Tun Haji Juhar Haji Mahiruddin in a grand opening ceremony at the mall’s main atrium yesterday. Although the mall has been opened to the public for almost three years and had its soft opening in October 2009, the Chairman, Humphrey Tan Koon Yee, said there was still much to celebrate. According to Tan, his vision for Suria Sabah to become the state’s first one-stop shopping mall needs more work to be done before it can be fully accomplished. However, “Suria Sabah is firmly on track” towards accomplishing this. Suria Sabah, sitting on one of the most beautiful locations in the city centre hosts a comfortable environment with finishes of international standards and houses a great range of retailers bringing international standards of merchandising to Sabah (extracts from New Sabah Times, Tuesday January 10, 2012).
