Malls are quiet due to virus?

Post by abbby » Tue, 03 Mar 2020 5:48 pm

Is it just one mall I went or happening to most malls? The malls seem to be very quiet on the weekend and also restaurants are mostly empty..or just a few people.

Changi seemed more morgue than airport when I flew in. Everywhere I've been is quiet, I'm guessing that's island wide.

F & B and retail shops are suffering, suspect many will close shop.

It may be a long road ahead.

Vivocity seems pretty busy and the Japanese restaurant we go to regularly told us that their weekend business been pretty good. Things were very quiet around there early on when the virus hit but people seem to have gotten bored staying at home...

(And at Ikea in Alexandra, the queues to pay were backed up to the plant section. :mad: )

So I guess it's much dependant on which mall as well..IKEA is crazy...it's always such a long queue to get food.
