Foot Locker flagship forced to close for Covid-19 breaches

Foot Locker celebrates youth and sneaker culture in Singapore with new store opening

Foot Locker’s Orchard Road flagship has been forced to suspend business due to breaching the Singapore government’s Covid-19 safe management measures.

The suspension was enforced as the retailer conducted a product launch which drew huge crowds outside the store last Friday despite the advisories on crowd management. 

According to Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG), the retailer will have to stop trading at the Orchard flagship store until December 14. 

During 10 days of suspension, Foot Locker is banned from holding physical retail activities but may continue to trade online. 

“STB and Enterprise Singapore are also engaging Foot Locker Singapore on the measures it will take for future product launches, including the potential cessation of all such physical launches at Foot Locker locations across Singapore,” the agencies said.

Opened earlier this year, Foot Locker Orchard Gateway @Emerald is the brand’s largest outlet yet in Singapore.
