Singapore’s Raffles City to boast 50 new stores after revamp

(Source: supplied )

More than 50 new brands, including specialty stores and experiential concepts, will enter the revamped Raffles City shopping centre later this year. 

The renovation of a 111,000sqft area across Levels 1 to 3 is scheduled to complete in the fourth quarter of this year. An initial series of store openings kicked off with the launch of Acqua di Parma’s first flagship store in Southeast Asia last month. Spanning approximately 1000sqft, the store features the first of its grooming service ‘Barbiera’ in Asia Pacific.

The downtown Singapore centre’s revamp was in part made necessary by the collapse of the Robinsons department-store business in 2020, which left a large space untenanted but opened the possibility for multiple additional smaller tenancies, as well as an expansion of the Marks & Spencer space.

“Raffles City’s rejuvenation plans are part of our continuous efforts to keep us on the pulse of the rapidly evolving shopping and lifestyle needs of our shoppers,” said Steve Ng, GM of Raffles City Singapore. 

“Our new tenant mix has been carefully curated to cater to the diverse demographics who frequent our mall, especially those who seek more than just retail gratification and the discerning ones who appreciate the finer things in life”.

Sephora, Marks & Spencer and L’Occtane, will introduce new concept stores in the coming months. While L’Occitane will land its first Green Store in Singapore at Raffles City, Marks & Spencer will expand its offering with a new 15,000sqft concept store, consisting of a grocer and bakery. 

Other new tenants joining the revamped premise include Lululemon, Paris Baguette x Teatra, Venchi and Läderach. Raffles City said it will disclose more new tenants in coming months.
