Singapore, 27 JUNE 2018 – Offering a stimulating blend of retail experiences, VivoCity is set to excite shoppers with a plethora of fashionable lifestyle choices at the new B1 extension. Spanning 3,000 square metres, the new extension houses ten brands across fashion, athleisure and lifestyle categories, providing shoppers with an enhanced shopping experience at VivoCity.
To facilitate access to the new retail extension and ease general traffic circulation from HarbourFront MRT station into the mall, VivoCity also announced the opening of a new escalator lobby, Lobby R, with its Basement 2 lobby situated right next to Kopitiam. The new escalator lobby rides up through the new retail extension at B1 and into Tangs on Level 1.
“In keeping the retail experience at VivoCity refreshed, we have launched a new extension at Basement 1, expanding the retail offerings in the mall to better cater to the evolving needs of our shoppers. The new extension will allow shoppers to discover new retail concepts and expanded fashion and lifestyle collections, well-suited to fit their every need,” says Gwen Au, Vice President for Marketing Communications, Mapletree Commercial Property Management. “Together with the official launch of the new retail extension, VivoCity has prepared a series of events and activities in the months of July and August. From a mall-wide social awareness collaboration with Soles4Souls to a host of special rewards and promotions awaiting shoppers at B1, there are a myriad of reasons to visit the new extension at VivoCity.”
