IKEA to open 2nd outlet in Cheras

When I left IKEA in 2009, there has been talks already for "KL2" - the codename for the second IKEA store in Kuala Lumpur.. At the same time, IKEA Tebrau JB and IKEA in Penang were also in the cards - somehow the plans for Tebrau City store became silent.. IKEA Batu Kawan, Penang  will still be going, last I read it will be at the very least, another 3-4 years before it's open..

IKEA Cheras

But rejoice, finally IKEA Cheras, located in Jalan Cochrane, is opening before the end of 2015! It will be about 20% larger than IKEA Damansara - thank goodness they are finally speeding up the works, please take the jam and crowd away from IKEA Damansara!

This place is a nightmare especially on weekends and public holidays, as if Malaysians have no where else to go for the meatballs, fried chicken and whatnots..

And if transport is an issue, don't worry because Cochrane MRT Station is just.. well, right there!


  1. Just a correction that mall is not in Malaysia. that's Philippines mall. SM Megamall. :)

  2. my bad! didnt realise that..
    have removed it..


Hot right now!
