KUALA LUMPUR, (Bernama) -- The throngs of shoppers trawling Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, the 'grande dame' of Kuala Lumpur, on weekends will not miss Wisma Harwant which houses the most popular sporting goods shop in the capital, G.S. Gill.
While shopers are enamoured by sparkling new shops and department stores arraying Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman or Jalan TAR, they cannot help but notice the imposing Wisma Harvant towards the end of the road.
Founded by Tan Sri G.S. Gill, who died at the age of 92 on Aug 27, 2016, the G.S. Gill sporting goods store started from a small shop in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Batu Road then) in 1946 before expanding to an 11-storey Wisma Harwant which was named after his wife.
