Singapore’s famed shopping giant, Mustafa Centre to open in Malaysia

Being well-known as one of the biggest and most reasonable shopping destinations in Singapore, Mustafa Centre is a favourite place for many tourists and local residents— especially since it offers all kinds of products.

Most recently, the renowned Singaporean retailer announced that it’s set to open its flagship store in Tampoi, Johor Bahru soon.


This is following the announcement made by Capital World Ltd (Capital World) that it will sell most of the space, including retail units at its Capital City Mall to Mustafa for RM368 million. The RM368 million deal also includes 374 accessory parcels, comprising alfresco and multipurpose areas and all 2,181 car park lots.

The purchase marks Mustafa’s first foray as a full-fledged department store operator in Malaysia, a market it has been looking to penetrate for years.
