About Digital Mall

According to Digital Mall’s representative, this is the idea upon which the mall is largely focused. The management’s most recent project aims to provide Digital Mall’s customers with free storewide WiFi connectivity..
The multifarious offerings at this four-storey mall are impressive. Although, small in comparison to its relatively larger Bukit Bintang counterpart Low Yat Plaza Digital Mall definitely does not offer any less variety to the wandering eyes of the tech junkie.

For your convenience, ATM machines are placed in the centre of the ground floor, and at the corners of the first floor.
On top of all that, Digital Mall is also friendly to the disabled community. There are ramps at the entrance to the mall, plus elevators that grant easy access to every floor of the mall.
Amidst the competition Digital Mall receives from the mushrooming online shopping websites with competitive quality and prices, Digital Mall still continues to tirelessly maintain its customer base.

You can easily pick a store, walk right in, and get your request taken care of within half an hour. All in all, Digital Mall is really a good place to shop for your IT needs.
On a different note, Digital Mall also chooses to be an environmental advocate. Their eco-friendly fairs which take place every now and then encourages Digital Mall’s customers to responsibly dispose of their IT devices.

If you live in KL, you may prefer to check out Plaza Low Yat, which is also a major IT shopping mall.
Where is Digital Mall and When Is It Open?
Nestled in the middle of a bustling shop-house area, Digital Mall is located in Section 14 in Petaling Jaya. Located strategically between Shah Alam and Kuala Lumpur, Digital Mall receives between 4,000 and 5,000 customer walk-ins per day.
You can reach Section 14 via the Federal Highway. If you are coming from KL, look out for the Asia Jaya LRT Station signboard along the highway, and then take that exit. The mall is also opposite Jaya 33, which is a helpful land mark if you’re coming from Jalan Utara. Traffic jams are a common occurrence in the area, so getting there by car could be a tedious task. Catch the LRT to Asia Jaya if you want to avoid the traffic shenanigans. Digital Mall is just a 5-minute-walk form the LRT station.
When Jaya Shopping Centre is completed across the road from Digital Mall, Section 14 is going to be an even more attractive area. Parking problems should soon become a thing of the past, however, when Jaya SC opens its doors for business.
