Subang Parade was constructed between 1987 and 1988. The idea came from Abd Aziz Mohamed who worked in Sime UEP after he travels to various countries for references. Subang Parade (the first mall in Subang Jaya and when opened in 1988, was the longest mall in Southeast Asia)[1] officially opened on 13 August 1988 by the late 8th Sultan of Selangor, Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah. In 2003, Subang Parade was sold to The Hektar Group before being resold into the Hektar REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) and became one of its shopping centres alongside Kulim Central and Central Square in Kedah, Wetex Parade and Segamat Central in Johor, and Mahkota Parade in Malacca.[2]

At Subang Parade, book lovers can gather at a reading corner on the first floor of the East End Concourse to immerse themselves in their favourite novels and books largely donated by patrons.[3]

Following a partial lockdown from the COVID-19 pandemic and several social media posts alleging the closure of nine MPH stores nationwide including four in the Klang Valley, Malay Mail’s checks with staff members confirmed that the MPH outlet in Subang Parade will close on 6 June 2020. [4]
