Pulau Pinang, Malaysia (25th November 2013) – To fulfil the needs of its consumers better, Canon Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd (Canon), Malaysia’s leading imaging solutions provider has proudly launched its exclusive retail store, Image Square in Penang. Located at the UNESCO heritage building on Jalan Burmah, Image Square is Canon’s first store of its kind in Malaysia’s northern region. The building features a total of 7,355 square feet with the entire ground floor dedicated for all Canon imaging products.
Present at the launch was guest of honour YB Puan Lim Siew Khim, ADUN Sungai Pinang. Also in attendance were Mr Lim Kim Cheei, PKT, Managing Director of Winsion Photo Trading Sdn Bhd; and Mr Melvyn Ho, President and CEO, Canon Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd. Apart from the ribbon cutting ceremony, the event was also highlighted by a lion dance performance and culminated with a tour around Image Square.
“Image Square serves to give consumers a personal encounter with Canon’s comprehensive range of imaging solutions. It is also our way to further enhance our consumer’s purchasing experience and to provide excellent service. Walking into Image Square, consumers are able to take their pick of Canon’s various products including DSLR, digital cameras, lenses and printers. Well-trained technical staff are also on hand to advise and support our consumers with their queries,” stated Ho at the launch.
The opening of Image Square in the northern island also follows from Canon’s rebranding exercise. Effective October 2013, all Canon Concept Lifestyle Stores have been renamed Image Square.
“This rebranding effort is aligned with our regional direction in achieving a cohesive and consistent branding. It enables our consumers and the general public to better identify with the Canon brand; immediately recognising us for our high quality products and premium services. Additionally, it also gives them the assurance that we do continuously strive in delighting them always,” Ho added.
Besides Penang, other Image Square stores are located at strategic hotspots around the Klang Valley including Mid Valley Megamall, One Utama, Sunway Pyramid and Suria KLCC. Opening hours of Image Square is from 10 am – 10 pm daily. Image Square Penang operates from 11 am – 8 pm daily.
