Softlogic Holdings PLC announced the launch of its newest retail development – The ‘ODEL Mall Kandy’, today.
The expansive 91,414 sq ft ODEL Mall is poised to be Kandy’s most sought-after state-of-the-art, premium lifestyle shopping destination situated in the heart of Sri Lanka’s hill capital.
Located at No. 377, Sirimavo Bandaranaike Mawatha, Peradeniya Road, Kandy, the ODEL Mall will house a premium collection of Softlogic’s most celebrated brands including ODEL (Sri Lanka’s premier fashion and lifestyle retailer boasting an array of world-renowned international and local labels); Baskin Robbins (the world’s largest chain of speciality ice cream operating in over 50 countries worldwide); GLOMARK (Sri Lanka’s first inspirational global market which aims at revolutionizing the country’s modern retail trade landscape); and POPEYES (The USA based leading fast-food chain).
The retail mall will in-turn launch two fast-popular brands, for the first time in Kandy, GLOMARK and POPEYES. The GLOMARK supermarket would house a wide range of locally and globally sourced essentials needed for your home coupled with a unique shopping experience that has been curated to optimize the customer journey. The supermarket also offers a café experience at Bakes, as an extension of its unique customer experience. POPEYE’s is known for its signature slow-cooked method where fresh, locally sourced chicken is marinated for 12 hours with a rich blend of proprietary seasoning and spices, and thereafter hand-battered and breaded to produce chicken that is juicy on the inside while retaining a crispier crust on the outside, transporting customer taste buds to the wholesome goodness with its roots in Louisiana, USA.
