Anyone who has been to VivoCity will be painfully aware of the renovation works that have been taking place at Basement 1 of the mall. It has been covered with movie posters and what not’s, but of late, things have been taking shape and brand names plastering “Opening Soon” posters all over. Well, looks like we won’t have to wait any longer as this new 15,000 sq ft worth of retail therapy has officially launched on the 15 April 2015.
Housing a total of nine retailers, including two of which are new-to-market retailers (American Eagle Outfitters and Weekends), will form a new trendy enclave of fashion, beauty and lifestyle stores. Overall, it will create a seamless shopping experience across all levels of the mall – reinforcing the fate that they are the biggest go-to mall where you can get everything you need in one place.
As part of the celebrations, each will be introducing their seasonal promotions, as well as offering exclusive deals and rewards to customers. To top that off, VivoCity will also be holding a Facebook contest where shoppers will stand to win prizes and shopping vouchers from a new participating tenant every week starting from 22nd April 2015.
Read on for exclusive information on the opening dates and special events/promotions from the nine retailers.
