6 Free Mall Services You Didn’t Know About
It’s no secret that Singapore is a shopper’s paradise with so many impressive malls dotting the island. But did you know that some of them offer a few mall services that are absolutely free? Well, now you do.
Take advantage of these free perks the next time you’re on a shopaholic spree:
1. Strollers, Wheelchairs and Umbrellas for Loan
Ever been caught without an umbrella or wish you had lugged the baby stroller from home? Don’t worry, you never need to again. As with everything Singaporean, most of our malls are very family friendly too, and most of them have a few strollers and wheelchairs to loan shoppers in case of emergencies. Likewise, head to the friendly concierge desk to rent out an umbrella if an unexpected shower catches you unaware. Loaning these items will usually require putting down a small refundable deposit.
2. Complimentary Personal Shopping
If you’re a Robinsons’ group visa cardmember, you can book an appointment with a professional personal shopper at Robinsons The Heeren or Raffles City so that you come out looking spiffy without any effort. Not only will the personal shopper help you with your wardrobe choices, they can also help you pick out suitable gifts if you want to get started early with your Christmas shopping.
3. Free Shoe Shining
If you’re still at Marina Bay Sands, head to the Concierge desk at the casino level to take advantage of its complimentary shoe shine service and let them buff your leather shoes back into pristine condition while you enjoy a well-deserved break.
4. Kids Shower Room
Westgate not only has a free playground, but it has a kids’ shower room on the same floor, sparing you from having to load sweaty children into the car on the way home.
5. Free Mobile Charging Stations or Power Bank Loans
Run out of mobile juice while you’re out and about? Funan and Ion Orchard offer customers complimentary mobile charging stations, while others such as Paragon and Jewel Changi Airport can provide power banks on loan for a few hours.
The pharmacy in Jewel B2 will have you covered, should you run out of diapers or feel a sudden headache before boarding the plane.
