The Mines with its brand new look is attracting, on average, over a million visitors monthly
It’s just gotten more fun at The Mines! Previously known as Mines Shopping Fair, The Mines has a new look, new name and more fun for the family!
The only mall in Malaysia that has a river running into it now houses the largest IT Centre in Malaysia, a children’s playground, designated water play area with interactive features and 100 new tenants to enhance shoppers’ experience.
“At The Mines, there’s something for everyone in the family: there’s a lot more variety of food, more fashion shopping for the ladies, more gadget shopping for the men and teens, interactive play areas for the kids, and lots more family entertainment,” says Fern Tan, Senior Centre Manager, The Mines.
More Fun, Food and Fashion
Splash Park comprises a children’s playground and designated water play area with interactive features
Indeed, the entertainment at The Minds caters to shoppers from all ages. Let’s begin with the young. The Mines created a landscaped rooftop garden called Splash Park, comprising a children’s playground and designated water play area with interactive features. This is an ideal hangout for the families with young children.
Then for the slightly older ones, there are the TGV Cinemas, Bowling Centre, and Family Karaoke to keep them occupied and entertained.
Eating along the canal is a refreshing change and the new F&B tenants offer such a wide variety to choose from
If eating is your passion, The Mines' range of new food outlets will keep you coming back for more. And to enhance your eating ambience, many of these outlets are located along the canal! You can choose to eat at OldTown Coffee, Subway, BreadStory, Carl’s Junior, Secret Recipe, or Pizza San Francisco while enjoying the view of the cruise riding along the canal.

The Mines is also a shopaholic’s haven.
Leveraging on CapitaMalls Asia’s global retail network, popular brands like G2000, Nichii, Kitschen, DC Super Heroes, Gold Heart, City Chain and many more have been brought in to give shoppers variety and quality.

Drawing the crowds
Over the last 2 years, CapitaMalls Asia has invested over RM100 million to transform The Mines to a contemporary neighborhood shopping mall.
Besides adding 100 more tenants to the current 386, it also improved the connectivity and accessibility by creating three new bridges over the canal and adding six new escalators and introduced a new carpark guidance system to ease traffic and shoppers at the carpark.
Many shoppers are pleased with all these enhancements and improvements made to The Mines and the figures show.
The average number of visitors rose from 650,000 per month in January 2008 to 1.2 million in December 2009. The mall attracts not only the residents of Seri Kembangan but also foreign tourists as well.
