The store, located in SS2, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, is 20,000-square-feet. It has space to park up to 20 cars, and will feature a partnership with both a car rental company, as well as a ride-share provider.

Gocar Malaysia, the car rental provider, will have two cars available at the Point S location. And Grab Malaysia, an Uber competitor in the region, also will be using the store as a terminal for the convenience of customers.

The opening of this flagship space comes three months after Point S opened its first store in the city of Petaling Jaya.

Point S Malaysia currently has three branded outlets in the country — located in SS2, SS15, and Kayu Ara. Tai Qisheng, director of Point S Malaysia, says, “We are now planning for an outlet in East Malaysia, and expect to have at least 15 branded locations in Malaysia by the end of 2018. We look forward to pushing this fury pace to build Malaysia’s largest independent tire retailing chain."
