26 March, PETALING JAYA – Property developer, Tropicana Corporation Berhad (Tropicana or the Group) today announced that it will waive rentals to tenants at Tropicana Gardens Mall during the Movement Control Order period from 18 March to 14 April 2020, in an effort to help ease tenants’ financial burden amidst the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak so that they can, in turn, assist their employees.
All tenants offering non-essential trade and services at Tropicana Gardens Mall will not have to pay rent from 18 March to 14 April 2020. This waiver applies to all businesses at Tropicana Gardens Mall that have been opened since the mall began operations on 5 March 2020.
