Barely a year after the new CyberZone at Mall of Asia opened its doors, it’s now apparently closing down by the end of the month.
Got curious after seeing some of the stores were packing up last Sunday so I asked several of the attendants about it and they said they only have until July 28, 2009 to pack up and move out.
They revealed that a lot of the stores in CyberZone aren’t making enough sales to maintain rent so the mall management decided to close it down.
Been hanging around that area for some time now and have noticed very few people visit the place:
- Foot traffic is very low. Not a lot of people knew about the CyberZone area or even know where it is.
- CDR King is probably one of the few ones people really go to and that’s only because the other CDR King at the 2nd floor North Wing is always full.
- The bridge-way from the North Wing to the eComm Building took some time to get done so people wandering around the main mall had a hard time to get to CyberZone.
The vacant space left will then be converted to office spaces or possibly an extension of the existing call center in that building.
