Local mall VivoCity on Wednesday (Apr 15) announced that nine retailers, including two new to Singapore, will occupy the expanded space at Basement 1.
The introduction of the two retailers – US apparel brand American Eagle Outfitters and Weekends, a multi-brand lifestyle retailer – and the expansion of Basement 1 by 15,000 square feet are part of the mall’s efforts to keep it relevant to shoppers, its management said in a press release.
Weekends is currently open, while American Eagle Outfitters is scheduled to open on Jun 19. The expanded space is located at the main thoroughfare that connects HarbourFront MRT Station to the main shopping areas at the mall, as well as the Sentosa Express Station, said a VivoCity spokesperson.
The other seven retailers that will occupy the expanded space are: Steve Madden; Thomas Sabo; Rabeanco; Aeropostale; Lab Series; Etude House; and Innisfree. These retailers will open progressively from Wednesday, VivoCity said.
The expansion of VivoCity cost about S$5.5 million, added the spokesperson.
“This new retail space will take advantage of a constant stream of shopper traffic due to its location at the main thoroughfare that connects HarbourFront MRT Station (at Basement 2) to the main shopping areas in the mall as well as the Sentosa Express Station (at Level 3),” said Ms Joanna Lee, Head of Retail Management at Mapletree Commercial Property Management.
