“We are very excited to open the next flagship store in Johor state, marking the latest in retail elevation,” said Paul Gibbons, Managing Director of Sports Direct Malaysia. “We are yet to open our first store in Singapore and this opportunity with Sunway Big Box puts us strategically within reaching distance of that market, while also accommodating the wider market of Johorians,” he added on the opening day (24th September 2020). Paul had also announced Sports Direct’s new regional headquarters at Sunway City with a multi-year tenancy agreement to open a vertically integrated office and retail facility in a standalone Sunway building, located between the Sunway Lagoon and Sunway Hotel that is due to open by early 2021.
