Introduction: Amcorp Mall comprises 5 levels of restaurants, retail outlets and 2 basement parking levels.

Years ago, there was a cinema serving the movie goers but it was closed down not long thereafter.Nevertheless, the biggest draw to the crowd is the flea market on weekends. Compared to other larger and bigger shopping malls, one may not find Amcorp Mall interesting but for those who loved antiques and collectibles, this mall is definitely your choice all the time! Located on Lower Ground level, this retail shop sells wide array of collectibles such as coins, currency notes, pictures and stamps.

During the weekends, there are also several stalls in flea market selling antiques and collectible items.Another popular attraction in the mall is BookXcess located on third level where brand-new fiction and non-fiction titles are selling at a price lower by 70 percent compared to the market price.

So, it’s practically warehouse sale for book lovers everyday. Other retail outlets including the Giant Supermarket located on Lower Ground level, Guardian, Popular Bookstore and plenty more.Amcorp Mall is one interesting shopping centre in Petaling Jaya vicinity considering its elegant but yet spacious architectural design.
