The First Apple Store In Malaysia May Be Opening In The Exchange TRX
There have been rumours for a couple of years now, that Apple will finally make its way to open the first Apple retail store in Kuala Lumpur. As of today, there are only 5 Apple retail stores across Southeast Asia, 3 of which are located in Singapore, while the remaining 2 are in Bangkok, Thailand.
According to sources, Lendlease, who is the developer of The Exchange TRX at Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur, is currently in the advance stage of negotiation with Apple. Lendlease had apparently tried to convince Apple to open its retail store at the upcoming retail and lifestyle area for the past 2 years! That’s a lot of dedication!

More rumours stated that Apple representatives may have been in KL to discuss about this last month. Although negotiations are still on-going in 2021, the Exchange TRX is expected to be opened in phases until 2025, which is still a long way to go!
However, take this news with a grain of salt, as nothing is quite set in stone with Apple at the moment.
