Your Safe Space, Our Safe Space
With the relaxation of rules and SOPs by the government during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), the responsibility lies on business operators together with the public to maintain the necessary social distancing measures.
Sunway Malls have commenced the Your Safe Space, Our Safe Space initiative, introducing Social Distancing Officers (SDOs) – a team dedicated to analysing high-risk hotspots in its malls across the country to ensure that both shoppers as well as retailers are practising safe social distancing measures that have been put in place by the government.
Comprising Sunway Mall’s staff, the SDOs will be tasked with carrying out the following core duties:
Dispersing large crowds in the mall and in stores
Spacing out long queues at outlets
Reminding customers and retailers to wear masks
Discouraging loitering at common areas
Ensuring retailer’ hand sanitisers and thermometers are working correctly
Ensuring the overall cleanliness and hygiene of the mall
Furthermore, Sunway Velocity Mall will be installing VeloBuddies – Shuang Shuang the Bunny and Wei Wei the Panda at its Food Street Food precinct at Level Four. These quirky 3D cardboard characters dressed as Social Distancing Officers are designed to pose as physical reminders to maintain social distancing while shoppers dine in at Food Street Food restaurants. Sunway Velocity Mall will be the first mall to implement social distancing using physical characters on a wide scale (over 10 restaurants).
Ms. Phang Sau Lian, General Manager of Sunway Velocity Mall, elaborated, “As a holistic approach to the new normal, the mall is working together with our outlets and their employees on social distancing, hygiene, and operational guidelines that should be practiced. We’d like to see the implementation of the social distancing VeloBuddies as a way to spread joy to patrons, while dining and shopping, albeit in a safe way.”
From 16 to 30 July, head over to Sunway Velocity Mall to enjoy exclusive tea time promotions between 3pm and 6pm, only at Food Street Food and other participating outlets. Additionally, patrons can ‘Eat for Free with VeloBuddies’ from 10 July right up to 9 August.
Spend a minimum of RM10 in a single receipt at Food Street Food, take a picture with Shuang Shuang or Wei Wei, post it up on your social media, then head towards the Ground Floor Concierge Counter to verify your posted picture to redeem a RM10 Food Street Food cash voucher!
