Craving for Lim Chee Guan bak kwa for CNY this year and frustrated at the online system they have going on?
Well, I’ve got great news for you: Lim Chee Guan is allowing walk-ins again.
Here’s what you need to know.
Lim Chee Guan Will Allow Walk-In Customers to Queue for Their Bak Kwa from 8 to 10 Feb
Back in January 2021, Lim Chee Guan announced that they’ll stop walk-in sales for their legendary bak kwa from 20 Jan to 9 Feb in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
And with that, they brought their legendary queues online…which crash the servers.
Let’s just say it wasn’t a pretty sight, but if you really want to see it for yourself, you can read this article here.
In a recent update, Lim Chee Guan uploaded another post onto Facebook, this time with good news:
From 8 to 10 Feb 2021, Lim Chee Guan will be allowing walk-in purchases.
The reason for the change, according to the bak kwa brand, is due to the “enormous amount of support and requests”.
All four of their outlets will be open for walk-ins on those days from 10am to 9pm:
- 203 New Bridge Road
- People’s Park Complex #01-25
- ION Orchard #B4-37
- Jewel Changi #B2-222
They urge customers to maintain safe distancing measures while queueing and to ensure that masks are worn at all time.
Meanwhile, while some netizens on the post were wondering about the abrupt u-turn, most netizens were just glad that they can walk-in to make purchases again.
Back when it was an “online-order-only” system, only a part of Lim Chee Guan’s customers managed to get their orders in.
The rest were waiting impatiently for the bak kwa brand to sort their online system out.
Follow Covid-19 Rules, Please
Please do, because as you can probably tell by now, the authorities are cracking down on errant individuals and businesses.
You don’t want to cause any of the outlets to be suspended on these three precious days, right?
After all, people have been crowding in Chinatown like it’s 2019 ahead of Chinese New Year, which falls on 12 Feb,
The authorities have stepped up enforcement in the area and promise to take strict actions against any errant individuals caught.
