For us living in Sky Garden (especially in SG-3), this is an exciting development! No need to walk 15 minutes to Fivi Mart for grocery items anymore. Although Fivi provides delivery service, having a grocery nearby is convenient especially if you need items ASAP or when it is raining (covered area connecting to Queenland).
It’s not fully stocked as I hoped for but what you can expect from a small grocery, right? But it has the essentials. They do delivery as well but the attendants couldn’t quite tell me how much is the minimum purchase to avail of free delivery.
The milk section offers a lot of brands but not the brand I needed — Nestle 1+. 😦 So had to buy this instead.
Yup, they’ve got those security tags around the milk too — like you can steal a huge can without anyone noticing, right?
Saw this new C2 variant as well which reminds me of Real Leaf’s new products.
They DON’T accept credit card transactions (at least not yet) so hubby had to run to the nearest ATM for some cash.
It’s their 3rd day only so the cashiers are still getting into the groove of things. The cashier in my lane had a bit of hard time punching in our groceries and mistakenly punched in the wrong price for the pork we bought. We only bought half-kilo and the price was for 2 kilos. Tsk. Tsk. Learning curve.
Anyway, the cashiers and attendants were all very pleasant and helpful and hopefully their shelves will be filled with more items. And I also hope they can amp the aircon a bit more. It was really hot in some areas.
They also have an area selling children’s toys which includes Lego, Barbie, Hotwheels,Fisher Price, and yes, even Leap Frog! Scary place to bring a kid with you while doing grocery-shopping. Luckily, we got away with a small Hotwheels purchase only.
