Cold Storage has been a trusted name in fresh produce and top quality local and imported products in Malaysia since 1963. With its strategic location at the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Cold Storage KLCC has always been one of the top shopping picks for customers and tourists in the area; and with its central location close to the KLCC LRT exit, it is the only Cold Storage open from 7.30am to cater to the early commuters on their route to work.
“To ensure a customer’s shopping experience is complete, we spent a great deal of time and energy understanding the flow of our customers when they visit us at Cold Storage.
