Update: February 5, 1.26pm (GMT+8)
According to JD Sports Malaysia, its Mahkota Parade store will launch sometime on Tuesday, February 6. The retailer revealed the news on its Instagram page (@jdsportsmy) earlier on Sunday, February 4.
Stay tuned for more updates to come.
JD Sports Malaysia will open its first Penang Store at Sunway Carnival and its first Malacca store at Mahkota Parade.
The news was first announced on Instagram earlier on Monday, January 29 (see post above). However, news of the retailer’s first Malacca store was revealed in an Instagram story posted on Saturday, January 27 (see image below).
In addition, according to its Instagram caption, there will be more information on its Penang store released on @jdsportsmy‘s Instagram stores. A quick check revealed no information on either stores’ exclusive merchandise or addresses just yet. So it looks like we’ll have to wait for more information.
It looks like the sneaker and sportswear retailer is expanding prominently within Malaysia. To date, JD Sports Malaysia has launched six stores in Malaysia. The latest store to open was the IOI City Mall (Putrajaya), which launched in November 2017.

As JD Sports continue its rapid expansion throughout Malaysia, rumors regarding a JD Sports Singapore store have emerged. Earlier this month, we reported that a JD Sports Singapore Instagram account has surfaced online. It is possible that the retailer is looking to open a store in Singapore but we’ll have to wait for more information.
