The announcement was made in a social media post via the company’s official Facebook page on 16th October:
Food Republic has been operational in the 1 Utama shopping complex for over 9 years, since July 2011.
The company also has another outlet in Pavilion KL, another major shopping complex in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
In the recent weeks, several cases of new outbreaks have been reported in malls across the capital city of Malaysia, resulting in mall traffic falling to record lows — 1 Utama being one of them.
Healthcare experts believe this situation will last for several more weeks before it tapers down.
