JUNGCEYLON’S parent company, Phuket Square, has put its plans for overseas expansion on hold, while back home, the shopping centre is celebrating its second birthday with a feast of bargains and free shows.
Prices are being slashed by as much as 70 per cent and there will be a whole range of free entertainment between now and Songkran.
A number of superstars from Bangkok are expected to help bring in the crowds and push revenue to an estimated 45 million baht a month.
The free shows planned include a swimsuit show starring a Playboy cover girl, a toy festival which will run until April 8, and a Bike Week motorbike exhibition featuring all the latest bikes as well as the police bikes which are used to escort HM King Bhumibol Adulyadaj.
There will also be some lucky door prizes with some fantastic prizes.
A new pub is also set to open in the shopping centre next month.
The Sound Phuket Pub, an off-shoot of the Bangkok-based Bed Supper Club is due to open in May.
Phuket Square CEO, Pravit Janyasithikul, said Jungceylon attracted about 3000 shoppers each day.
