JOHOR BARU: The Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) here is also a hit among celebrities.
Miss Malaysia-Universe Kimberly Leggett, who was among the crowd yesterday, said JPO was a great place, especially for students like herself to shop.

“Even though the items are a season late, there is no compromise in quality and the discounts are just too good to resist,” she said, adding that she was planning to make a second trip to JPO with several friends and her mother soon.

Another celebrity, Deborah Henry, who was also spotted shopping at the outlet, said she was pleasantly surprised as the layout was similar to other Premium Outlets overseas.

“I like the mixture of branded items and the food and beverage areas, which create a pleasant shopping experience,” she said, adding that the layout was also a great way to enjoy the Malaysian weather.
She said that this time around, her main aim was to shop for Christmas presents.

Leggett and Henry had travelled from Kuala Lumpur with fellow celebrities Andrea Fonseka and Amber Chia.

Meanwhile, most of the high-end outlets revealed that they were receiving more than 200 to 300 visitors daily.

Salvatore Ferragamo regional general manager C.S. Fan said the highest accumulated amount in a single receipt that they had issued was about RM5,000.

“We get many local and Singaporean shoppers who are willing to splurge on branded items, buying bags worth RM4,500 and other items as these are cheaper than the latest collections,” she said.
