Getting new clothes or shoes doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank or settling for hand-me-downs from older relatives. Take note of these shopping spots when you’re on a tight budget and you’ll never have to look at an empty wardrobe again!
With over 600 shops, Bugis Street is definitely a place to head to if you want to look good and happen to be on a tight budget. $10 will net you nice casual wear pieces while accessories such as rings, bracelets or watches will not cost more than $5, unless you decide to fall victim to a scam. Do dress light and make sure your valuables are on you at all times. Narrow and crowded alleyways are where pickpockets shine.
Shopping on a budget while you’re at Orchard Road is possible if you take the time to look around. Lucky Plaza also happens to be a Filipino cultural hub, having shops that sell Filipino goods, sports products and electronics. There are even bars and nightspots on the upper levels so take note of that if you’re planning to have a quick drink or would like to unwind after a whole day of shopping.
Far East Plaza
Although it may be nondescript and lacking the glitz and glamour of malls such as ION Orchard and 313 Somerset, Far East Plaza has its own charm. The mall is more ‘service’ oriented, with quite a number of tenants who are tattoo parlours, hair dressers, restaurants, or manicurists. Take note of the shops offering knockoff luxury products and tread carefully if you decide to purchase bags, belts or other items from them.
Mustafa Shopping Centre
Mustafa has the reputation of offering everything you need, including the kitchen sink. It’s also open 24/7 so don’t worry if you need that new TV in the wee hours of the night. However, you might want to visit the mall in the morning in order to avoid the crowds. You’ll most likely spend the bulk of your time walking rather than shopping because of the mall’s confusing layout too.
There’s a host of outlet stores at this mall right across IKEA at Alexandra Road. From apparel shops such as G2000 and Charles and Keith to stationery chain Typo, who said that you can’t get branded items on a budget? The discounts aren’t a measly 5 or 10 percent either, with stores slashing up to 70% off discontinued or off-season items. There’s even a clinic, supermarket and launderette, should you need these services.
