I rarely go past Ben Thanh Market when going to work in the mornings but today I did, and saw that the roundabout along Le Loi is now closed off for the train construction. General Tran Nguyen Han has been relocated since last year and now, another iconic site will follow suit the roundabout’s demise. The art alley of Station 3A will close in 2 months to give way to a mixed-use site.
From what I hear, business owners in Station 3A are scrambling to find new locations. One business that just moved to Station 3A (and made a huge investment) is crying foul with the sudden news of the closure.
Some were planning ahead, like my friend, Helen of Ava’s Closet.
I first met Helen in 2011, when she was still running Geisha’s Cafe. Then in 2014, she decided to focus on her clothing line, Ava’s Closet.
So anyhoo, in preparation for the big move, Ava’s Closet is holding a closing sale starting tomorrow till the 30th of April. What’s great about Ava’s is that they sell Western sizes — so they pretty much cater to all sizes.
Their dresses are to die for!
And if you can’t find a dress you like, you can always ask their in-house seamstress to sew one for you! She’s a gem!
Station 3A, 3A Ton Duc Thang St., District 1, HCMC
