I was like, “Noooooooooo! No freaking way!”
So I just had to go there myself and ask the shop owners.
And yes. They are closing. 😦
But according to one of the shop owners, Lucky Plaza will be closing by
the end of July July 15 (my favorite shop wrote it down for me and even gave me the address to her new place), not in two weeks time. She even showed it to me on the calendar. However, don’t take my word for it. If you happen to pass by Lucky Plaza, do try asking the shopkeepers there. My Vietnamese isn’t so good, you see. If I remember correctly, Lucky Plaza opened at the time we arrived in Vietnam in mid-2009. So, this place is actually just a couple of years old. Even if I got the closing date wrong, the point is, Lucky Plaza will be closing down to give way to a new building. The place has already been bought by another group.
Now, the shops don’t have a place to go yet and I’m actually sad that I’ll no longer have this place to visit. The clothes they sell are affordable and I can actually find a something in my size (as you know the Vietnamese have a slight frame so usually it’s difficult to find clothes for the horizontally-challenged people).
So it looks like — panic buying time for me. 😛
