    The last visit to this Plaza was almost two years ago. Still vibrant inspite of the unprecedentsl Coronavirus aka COVID-19. Spacious and many shop outlets and eateries and cafes. Multistorey parking place. Large weekend crowd and shoppers. SOP for safety and social distancing applies.

    Seems to the little brother of Gurney Plaza Mall next to each other.
    Quite empty and boring for being honest.
    Went there for the H&M store where the staff is particularly unfriendly with an impersonal service... new fashion, new style? Maybe but they should not forget that if no guests, no stores, no jobs...
    Anyway not much more to say.
    Food court is pricey including the supermarket with some overseas/expats articles...

    Rather old and tired-looking mall. The car park is a dump. Nonetheless we were able to make the best of our visit here. There were some good bargains and there's a good restaurant- Little Oasis here.

    A very basic but more modern mall than most in the area. We appreciated the air conditioning but didn't buy anything.

    This food court is now very popular due to extended opening hours with most made on the spot drinks at a flat rate of RM 0.90. Don’t even have to go to balik pulau. The famous Balik Pulau laksa is available here.

    I think M Mall isn't going to last much longer. Today, 11 Jan 2020 the 2nd floor is deserted. Not even the usual 'gathering' of senior and younger folks enjoying the free WiFi and air-con. Perhaps it was due to the air-con being switched off. Seeing as how its days are limited, perhaps I'll take the opportunity to indulge you with a short history of George Town's most controversial mall. I've been a visitor since the early days. Back then it was only Penang Times Square (PTS). Because I lived nearby, I could shop for groceries at Sunshine (where M Galleria is now), electrical goods at SEC and household items at Mr DIY. I could also get my phone serviced at the Maxis office on the ground floor. During the early days, there was also a limited period where you could buy a whole roasted chicken for RM5 I think (or was it RM8?)! The lines were long. You came early, you joined the long queue already there, you were given a ticket with a number, then you came back to pick up your bird 2 hours later. All these outlets packed up a long time ago. But even in those days, PTS wasn't the most crowded of malls, compared with the nearby Komtar, Prangin Mall and 1st Avenue. I remember kids using the corridors on the 2nd floor as a roller blade skating rink. Of the few shops that were opened on the 2nd floor were, coincidentally, a roller blade shop. The concourse on the 1st floor, next to where the food court is located, was used by hobbyists to practice flying their radio controlled helicopters. M Mall was still in construction at the time and the only business activity there was when Big Bad Wolf had a book sale. When M Mall did open, there were visitors aplenty, mostly locals, but they were there mostly to satisfy their curiosity and to pose for selfies with the numerous props found all over the place. The Fun Ride cars were quite popular too, for a while. When the Chinese visitors started arriving in droves, armed with M points, business was over the top fantastic! The crowds were so huge that the usually spacious corridors were congested, and the aircon, going at full blast, was barely sufficient to cool the air. So many people, so much noise, and so much fun, even for those merely observing!! Shops that were especially popular with the Chinese tourists were Asian Native (with their lavender shopping bags), Ecolite, the posh Vanessa's Gallery and the numerous luggage outlets. After the MCall / M Money scandal, the Chinese tourists stopped coming, and the popularity of M Mall plummeted almost as quickly as it had risen. Worse, the local visitors also stopped coming. Shops started closing down one by one. Today, a few shops are still open, barely surviving, with the exception of Wine Houz, Ming Garden (only when there are functions) and Tao. These outlets are all located at the former PTS. M Mall is definitely winding down. Perhaps PTS will remain open, back to what it originally used to be. Goodbye M Mall :'(

    As a Crafter I am always excited to find a store where I can purchase items to use in the crafts I enjoy - scrapbooking, sewing, quilting, making greeting cards and journals.
    This store has an amazing array of lace, ribbons, beads and buttons at very fair prices compared to those at home.
