Honourable mention: Bukit Jambul Complex

Awesome place to shop for electronic devices and phones.

UPDATE: *opinion* The place is starting to lose its appeal among locals. If you’re looking to visit a happening place to do some window shopping, we’d advise you maybe to look elsewhere.

This seven-storey retail complex houses tenants like Reject Shop, Popular Bookshop, and many others. However, Bukit Jambul Complex Penang is one of those niche Penang shopping malls for the locals especially. It targets more on the lower middle class that are keen in getting the best electronic device deals in Penang.
