Gone

I was walking around the top floor of MidValley Mall when I felt that something was amiss. The space above was occupied by a stall last time. I wrote about the stall Marvellous Egg Co back in Dec 2014 and April 2015 when they added rice meal to their menu and now it is gone. I wonder were they just testing the market with that stall to see whether the business is viable or not?

  1. Didn't even last a year. I hear a lot of places over there are closing down, dunno how true that is.

    1. Only these kind of food which I think is too expensive.

  2. Never been to that place, maybe they shifted to another location within the premise?

  3. I realize the turnover rate of those kiosks at the top floor of MV is rather high.. like now you see it, now you don't..

    1. Especially those stalls that are not popular.

  4. I wonder how much the mall charges them for the rental of that floor space. If a stall in Central Market can fetch upwards of RM 1500/month, I suppose it would be at least threefold in a place like MidValley. Either they moved, or they closed down due to not being able to keep up with rent.

    1. Would you buy what they were selling? If not that would explain why their business is not viable.

    2. Haha, good question. My answer is..... NO. I've seen this stall quite a bit in different malls when I go back to KL, but never once been tempted to go for it. :P

  5. Unfortunately, a lot of these turn out to be just fads....once the craze dies down, so is their business.

  6. Costs very high probably. If losing thousands a month, might as well close fast.

    1. When I saw what they were selling and the expensive price I didn't even want to buy any.

    1. Moved to outside this mall maybe.

  9. Maybe the rental is too high. If business not that good, not easy to maintain the rentail. May have shifted elsewhere cheaper.

    1. Let's see if I see the stall elsewhere.

  10. It is to rent in a shopping mall. Maybe business is not sufficient to cover all costs.

    1. Guess that is most likely the reason.

  11. I like the newly refurbished floor which seems to be most happening now. I remember that stall you mentioned and they are sadly gone, together with others. I have friends who still operate business there and shared about the rental & terms which really dropped my jaws!!!!!! I dare not write them out here the $$ up front payments and strict terms blah blah. Well, this is the trend and there are long waiting lists if we cannot comply.
