Commune @ Sunway Velocity Mall officially launched today on the 23rd of May 2017, giving shoppers in Malaysia a whole new artistic retail experience.
Located on the fifth floor of Sunway Velocity Mall, Cheras, this 15,000 square foot area features 13 stores and 43 independent brands, ranging from single-origin specialty coffee, beautifully designed hand-carved furniture, mind-provoking books, independent fashion designer clothing, amazing Eco-friendly beauty products and so much more.
Shoppers can get personal with each brand, actively engaging with the entrepreneurial artisans and learning the story behind every product purchased.
To further strengthen the engagement, some brands in Commune also organised workshops for shoppers to elevate their shopping experience by understanding certain skills or knowledge that are closely associated to the products or services they sell.
After filling up on a wholesome retail experience, visitors can participate in the diverse range of special events that will be held in the “Common Space”, an events foyer located at the heart of this unique retail space.
Patrons can come together to enjoy a host of experiences tailored to provide enrichment for attendees. Some past events held here include Chinese Opera showcases, independent film screenings, curated flea markets and specialty bazaars.
The concept behind Commune is to create a community of artisans and their patrons. It encourages the development of originality and cultures and is determined to provide a platform for artisans to grow by supporting one another.
It is an incubator for aspiring lifestyle entrepreneurs and provides them an environment that is responsive to the style and trends of their craft, while being accessible to the public.
To celebrate its grand opening, Commune hosted a launch party aimed at highlighting it’s vast range of entrepreneurs and introducing this revolutionary concept.
To discover the complete list of indulgences and offerings, visit Commune at Sunway Velocity Mall. It is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm and also made available for private events and functions.
