1Borneo- Tunes

Tune VenturesAirAsia affiliated Tune Ventures Sdn Bhd is establishing a major presence in Borneo’s shopping centre by opening its first department store and a 166-room hotel at the 1Borneo mega mall. Tune Ventures’ flagship retail outlet to be called Tune Store will occupy a 9,300sq m area in the massive mall which is scheduled to open by April 2008.Â

“We are targeting the middle income earners with our extensive selection of merchandise for discerning shoppers,” Tune Store director Dennis Melka said after the signing of an agreement between Tune Ventures and Sagajuta Sdn Bhd, 1Borneo’s developer for the establishment of the retail outlet.Â

The event was witnessed by state Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjum.Â

Melka said Tune Ventures had decided to open its first retail outlet in Kota Kinabalu due to the city’s rapid growth and the quality infrastructure offered at 1Borneo.Â

Tune Hotels chief executive Mark Lankester said the company’s property at 1Borneo would see various improvements including offering optional hair dryers and LCD television sets to guests.Â

“Room additions include a safe, bedside table with LED bedside lamps and sound-proof doors,” he added.Â

Masidi said the presence of the Tune Store and Tune Hotel would boost the city as a destination of choice for tourists.Â

“We may not have a large number of malls but we do have 1Borneo and other shopping centres and we also have the clean air, the mountain and islands.Â

“In other words Sabah will have something for everyone,” said Masidi.
