Kids Gallery, The First Kid’s Departmental Store Opens In One City USJ

One City Properties makes its entry into retail business with the opening of Kids Gallery, the first ever departmental store catering specially to children. 

Occupying a shopping space of about 15,500 sq. ft. which is equivalent to 9 shop lots, the store carries a wide range of children’s merchandise from clothing to shoes, accessories, books, bags and even to bedding.

Shopping with parents can be boring for kids. With Kids Gallery’s concept that caters to both parents and children, shopping will now be a fun filled experience. 

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 now breastfeed or shop in peace knowing that 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.

Sim added, “With an investment of RM3 million 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 in awe with her ability to host. She's so cute and a natural talented bubbly girl, I like her too.

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.

A lion dance troupe then ushered in the good luck and prosperity at the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
