Central Department Store – the one stop store
Since this shopping mall is owned by the Central Group, there is a huge Central Department Store in the mall where you can find almost anything under the sun.
This is also a major attraction of this shopping mall as you can shop for all the products for daily use inside an air conditioned mall rather than sweating it in the street outside.
