Harrods is poised to open a store in the heart of the Malaysian capital’s shopping district in Kuala Lumpur.

The iconic department store group will open the store on Saturday within the shopping complex Suria KLCC, which is situated next to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.

The store, which is called Harrods World Signature Shop and Tea Salon, is 4,000 sq ft and located on the first level of Park Mall. It offers a range of Harrods-branded merchandise from the ambient food range that can be found in its Knightsbridge store food halls.

It also has a bar and tea salon, inspired by the Georgian Restaurant at Harrods. It features iconic images of Harrods’ history.

Harrods chairman Mohamed Al Fayed said: “Even with two existing shops in Kuala Lumpur airport, the move into Malaysia is an important one for Harrods and I am delighted to be able to offer customers the unique mixture of luxury merchandise and exemplary service which epitomises the Harrods experience.”
