Way before The Summit, Carrefour, Batu Pahat Mall, where did the locals go for shopping? I was just thinking about it and decided maybe I should do a post about it.
As a small little boy, I remember going to these 3 buildings to buy toys! I remember that Granddad would always buy us toys when we go with him to these 3 places! (Mum reminded that we were quite spoilt!)
This building currently is Courts Mammoth, but when I was a kid, I remember it being Rich’s. It has this giantic Yellow Neon light that blink the letter R I C H’s, that could be seen from far away. Then there was this big fire and it closed down. Then came Parkson Ria. Anything before and after, I can’t remember. Someone fill me in, if I miss out anything. After Rich’s was it Parkson or something else?
I remember this place as Emporium. Where the big Sandman signboard is now, was the Neon Lights of Emporium. I remember this place had lots of toys! hahaha… Then later it was something else that I have forgotten.
This was Fajar. The place that was popular before The Store came in. Anyway, it’s all in the same company now, and the existing Fajar behind The Summit has become The Store now.
Anyone has photos of these buildings when they were Emporium, Fajar, Parkson or Rich’s?
