New Horizon Mall is open 10 am – 8 pm Monday to Saturday, and 11 am – 6 pm Sundays and holidays. Interested groups can inquire about holding events as its high tech Main Stage offers live video streaming to a gigantic video screen and no venue fee. The main stage is specifically designed to match the unique shopping experience with culturally distinct forms of entertainment, events, holiday celebrations and fashion shows to be organized year-round.
