IPC Shopping Centre A Brand New Community Family Shopping Destination

IPC Shopping Centre A Brand New Community Family Shopping Destination

Wonder where to go during the upcoming Chinese New Year in Kuala Lumpur? How about bringing your family to IPC Shopping Centre? The shopping centre went through a RM 200 million redevelopment which includes the surrounding landscaping and community infrastructure. We went there recently for the official launch and we had a tour of the shopping centre.

The layout of the shopping centre is different now – from the position of the elevators to the overall spacious feeling. The main foyer now looks bigger and brighter with the natural lights coming in from outside.

In addition to the redevelopment, IPC Shopping Centre also introduced a new brand logo to mark the brand’s 15th anniversary. The new logo showcases the overall evolution of the brand and how it continues to stay relevant to the community.

IPC Shopping Centre evolved to a more family oriented and community shopping centre. It is connected to its neighbours such as The Curve, eCurve and of course IKEA, to strengthen Mutiara Damansara Commercial Centre as the premier destination for shopping, dining and meeting with family and friends. In short, you can spend the whole day in IPC Shopping Centre and the surrounding nearby centres.

Let us share our experiences with the new IPC Shopping Centre. We visited many redeveloped shopping centres in Malaysia and most of them were not as impressive, except IPC Shopping Centre.

From the entrance, they created a dedicated entrance for children. We have visited many shopping centres around the world but this is our first time seeing a dedicated entrance for children and our boys loved it. We showed it in the video we shared and you can see how the children are playing with each other.

When it comes to visiting the shopping centre, everyone wants to know more about the retail shops and also the dining outlets. IPC Shopping Centre offers 145 stores including new, extended and refreshed F&B concepts, fashion and beauty retailers, and lifestyle outlets. The shopping centre sees 46% of returning tenants, such as Harvey Norman, Popular Bookstore, Padini, Brands Outlet, Spotlight and Ace Hardware. New tenants include Ben’s Independent Grocer (B.I.G.), Family Mart, IKEA Café, Watsons, Cotton On, LC Waikiki, and Skechers’ largest flagship store in Southeast Asia.

What is a family friendly shopping centre? Since we are parents with two young boys, we always look for shopping centre that is spacious and facilities like family / baby room and playground. Children tend to run around and you don’t want them to run around in a packed shopping centre.

There are many shopping centres in Klang Valley and only a few of them are family friendly. When you have a baby or toddler, you always need a family-friendly room to change diaper or for mothers to breastfeed. Sadly, most of the shopping centres offer one family-friendly room for the entire shopping centre. For IPC Shopping Centre, they offer a few family-friendly room and also baby toilet for children.

What to eat in IPC Shopping Centre?

In our opinion, food is one of the main reasons for us to visit a shopping centre. The new IPC Shopping Centre houses the restaurants on the Ground Floor and Lower Ground Floor so it is more organised. Their new food court is called ‘Foodland’ and you can many find many food stalls there from Korean to local cuisines.

For the restaurants, there are new and familiar names such as Hana Japanese Dining, Paradise Dynasty, Suki-Ya, Ichiban Ramen and Magnum Café. Shoppers will also be thrilled to see returning local favourites – Kluang Station, Uncle Lim, Absolute Thai, Noodle Shack, Nando’s, Starbucks and Dome.

Another interesting note is IPC Shopping Centre houses the first IKEA Café in Malaysia. The IKEA Café offers good quality coffee and snacks with IKEA pricing. You can read our review here.

IPC Shopping Centre also continues its efforts to better care for the environment with an upgraded Recycling & Buy Back Centre and newly installed solar panels that will contribute to ambitious annual energy saving targets.

IPC Shopping Centre is also currently in the process of obtaining official green building certification from Malaysia’s Green Building Index (GBI) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED Gold).

There is also a Funland on the second floor dedicated for the children. The Funland is free of charge and parents can rest here while the children can play at the playground. This is a pitstop for parents to rest and also a fun time for the children to play in the playground.

Overall, we were impressed by the new IPC Shopping Centre. It is a great place for family especially family with young children. We love the new facilities dedicated for family such as children entrance, family parking spaces and also the spacious walkways and free playground.

If you plan to visit IPC Shopping Centre for Chinese New year, you will be greeted by ‘A Tale of Great Fortune’ themed Chinese New Year celebration with colourful decorations around the shopping centre. Shoppers will be treated to a month filled with exciting giveaways and activities such as traditional lion dance, crafts activities for kids, traditional Chinese art workshops, and Chinese orchestra performances.
