I promised to come back with more updates for the store but I disappeared. 😅😅 The store opening day was crazyyyy, not what we expected tbh. But it’s good!
It’s been a week plus and I just wanna thank all our MY customers for specially coming down for the opening! We had customers who came down all the way from Penang, say whatttt. And others who travelled from KL to PJ where our store is? So apparently KL is like where KLCC is, and PJ is like where Sunway Pyramid is!
And it’s a big thing cos it’s not like very near to each other I think? And the traffic in general is just bad everyday lol. So they really made an effort to come for the opening, so touched. 😭
I’ve always thought KL is like the whole of KL, like how Singapore is all of the north south east and west! But in MY, it’s different!
I was in my grab that day and the pick up point was at Sunway, and I was headed to Ikea at My Town, and the driver asked me “oh you going to KL?” My answer must have made him feel like what is this woman talking man......
I replied him “oh we not in KL now? you drive out of KL???”
Pretty sure that’s a bimbo moment right there.
Our first flagship store looking 💯 if I may say so myself. To be honest, we signed the contract last year and I didn’t feel the excitement at all. Partly cos when we had our first store at Isetan 2 years ago, the turnout was depressing. 😂 It was WAY different from SG!
I only felt the excitement just before we departed SG, when I felt like shit was really real? To have our own standalone store is mostly Bert’s work, it was her who pushed for this to happen!
And seeing these irl, seeing things unfold gradually from the dark room cos there was no electricity when we first went to collect the keys, to the renovations, then the unpacking of all the stocks and everything, to finally opening the store... it just felt so surreal. Stepping out of home ground is always scary imo cos it’s a foreign land afterall.
In SG, we know we can always call who and who is smth happens, there’s always someone we can count on. It’s like we’re very well sheltered and protected. But over here, it’s really our own business if smth goes wrong 😂 So is that sense, it’s a little scary.
Thankfully everything went smoothly! The store looks so guuuud, I’m so glad the IDs did such a fab job!
We stocked in lots of previously launched designs, as we’ve been keeping stocks from Oct launches onwards! A lot of the shoppers were happy to find older designs available!
Our signature hanging flowers are in the Sunway store too. I really salute Bert for sourcing the EXACT same flowers. When she told me she found a florist to have this hanging flower, I was thinking it might not look 100% the same since the flowers may be from different country or season?
When I saw this I was really shocked! That’s why Bert is the producer of all these stuffs. She sources all the contacts for stores, even for photoshoots overseas. NUS trained her well haha.
If you haven’t visited us yet, make a trip down when you can! We are at LG1.58, a few units down JD sports!
One of our MY staffs sent this to me to update me of the crowd. I really didn’t expect the turnout to be this big, honestly honestly! This is almost as good as SG’s crowd. 😭
Really thankful for all the good blessings TCL has received! The MY team is very new so if you do encounter any issues, please feel free to contact us and let us know your feedback! I have to say they are a bunch of hardworking and cute girls though, earnestly wanting to learn the ropes!
One and only photo I took with @bertillawong for the whole 9 days we were there cos she was a sick bird. She slept for 2 days straight after we landed, and for the next few days she was sleeping and resting a lot too. Only ready to face the world when the store opened haha, but she was still feeling a bit weak la. After the opening day, she went back to being a very sick bird the next day. 😪 Couldn’t even walk more then 10 over steps without feeling tired. Haha damn poor thing.
And yay this marks another milestone! ✨✨✨
We will be having our grand opening in late March or early April! Things work a little differently in MY, like goodie bags need to go through approval too. And we were working with a really tight timeline for paperwork submission and approval, and even the renovations, so we pushed back the grand opening date.
We will have things planned for the grand opening, will share more when things are finalised!
