Mark Tan, Marketing Manager of IPC Shopping Centre said, “This year’s National Day themed ‘Malaysia Prihatin’ celebrates the true Malaysian Spirit. It honours all who have come together to help those who are confronted by the hardships of the pandemic, be it individuals, families, or even businesses. At IPC, we stand together with our fellow Malaysians in supporting those around us. The past year has not been the kindest to our tenants as many had to cease physical operations due to government orders. However, each of them continue to strive in adversity and even placed the community above themselves. Their embodiment of the Malaysian Spirit inspired us to introduce Citer-Citer IPC to share the stories of our tenants as Malaysian businesses for the Malaysian community. We hope that these stories that will be featured on our digital channels will speak to audiences on a personal level and drive them to support these businesses.”
“To make an impact is a community effort. As we continue to serve our tenants and shoppers, we hope to create meaningful memories together by reaching out to the wider community in the Klang Valley. Through the Happiness to Homes campaign, we to bring a glimpse of hope to the homes of those in need,” he added.
