The End Of An Era: Beloved Kelana Jaya Giant Mall Shuts Its Doors After 19 Years

For many, the Giant Hypermarket wasn't just a grocery store; it was the go-to spot for residents in Kelana Jaya to hang out with friends.

If you were 8 years old 19 years ago, you'd know the joy of growing up and chilling at the Dutch Lady playground on the mall's top floor, next to the food court that served what seemed to be the best claypot Yee Mee in town.

Parents looking for school attire would head to Professor on the same floor, and shoes could be found at Bata on the ground floor.

So many memories were made growing up, and the hypermarket will always hold a special place in the hearts of many.


It's reported that the hypermarket's demolition will commence in the upcoming year, as the land has been taken over by UEM Sunrise Berhad for the construction of a new high-rise building.

Looks like HighPark Suites will have to make way for the newbie!

The sentiment becomes even more touching with a Facebook user's post in the Kelana Jaya Community Facebook group, featuring a picture of the last customer holding a receipt after making a purchase at the premises.
