UPDATED: Subway Is Coming To Ipoh!
UPDATE: FULL SUBWAY IPOH REVIEW<<Click
Last week I heard from someone that a new Subway outlet will open in Ipoh soon. Now, I’ve heard this rumor about 2+ years ago and it didn’t happen so I was really disappointed as I had my hopes up. So, not wanting to get disappointed again, I ignored this news. Then another friend of mine also announced the same thing a couple of days later, so I got curious. He told me that he heard from someone, and it’s confirmed so I googled and it turned out to be true! Subway is FINALLY opening in Ipoh!
I’ve been wishing and wishing Subway would open an outlet in Ipoh for years… it’s finally coming true T_T
I found this image after ‘googling’ online.
So it’s official since the banner is up. My doubt is cleared. However…
A few days ago, I decided to check out the location of the upcoming store so I can take a clearer picture for this blog. Somebody told me it’ll be in Greentown, in between the area of Jakel textile store and Healy Mac’s. So obviously, I assumed it’ll be in the shoplots hidden behind because as far as I remember, there are no empty shops for Subway to open at other place around that area other than the one’s hidden behind.
I parked my car and walked.
But I couldn’t find it! If you look at the picture above, it seems to be at a new shop lot, but I couldn’t find it. After 10-15 minutes of walking, I gave up. I couldn’t find that banner. I just bought Chatime, and I didn’t see any banner nearby. I was confused. For a moment, I thought they canceled the branch already. So I was about to go home and I took the road along Healy Mac’s and Chatime and look what I found:
So I found it IN FRONT of Healy Mac’s & the halal dimsum place instead, next to 7-11. But if you compare this pic and the previous pic, it’s different. Obviously the other pic didn’t have any signboard above it, and it was at a newer looking shop lot. This one is at the location where ‘Nasi Kandar Greentown‘ used to be.
So I assume they’ve changed location?
Unless they purposely put the banner there so people could see? I don’t know. If they change back to the hidden shop lots, it’ll be a bad move since it’s hidden and so inconvenient. I’m super excited about the new location because I’m a regular at Chatime and I always drop by to buy drinks, so it’ll be so near Chatime that I’ll be having a hard time to not stop by Subway and get myself a sub every single time. I really hope this current place will be their location!
I heard it’ll open in October 2014. I can’t wait!
I hoped for Tako Tao and Wendy’s to come to Ipoh, and they did. Now my wish for Subway is finally about to be granted 😀 I hope they’ll open more outlets in Ipoh. And I hope more restaurants would open in Ipoh. I kind of want A&W and Burger King to re-open in Ipoh though – at a much more convenient location.
I will definitely review Subway here once it’s opened.
