15 Capitaland Malls Have Free Evening Parking Until Further Notice
People have stopped the mad panic about Covid-19, and life is going on as per normal, but malls are still empty as ever.
With more people staying in rather than going out, retail has taken a huge blow. Even the once-packed Jewel Changi has become a ghost town.
Read our article on that below.
It seems like even Capitaland malls are having trouble drawing crowds, despite their convenient locations and wide range of shops.
Perhaps that’s why they’ve begun to offer free parking at 15 of their malls.
Free parking from now until further notice
From 14 Feb, 15 Capitaland malls will have free parking at different times.
Most of them are offering free parking in the early afternoon from 12pm, so it’s a good opportunity to drive down for lunch.
Some of the malls even offer free parking in the evening too, like Junction 8 at Bishan and Plaza Singapura at Dhoby Ghaut. Now, you can take your time to browse the shops after dinner and not worry about burning a hole in your pocket just for parking.
Here’s a table of the malls and the windows during which parking is free.
You can find more information on this at their website here.
Boost to retail and economy
With financial experts predicting Covid-19 having a bigger impact on the economy than SARS, many retailers are worried about meeting their margins.
It’s even possible that a recession is on the way, if this virus outbreak continues to hinder retail and tourism.
Nevertheless, we have to remain calm and carry on.
Until this blows over, stay hygienic and take necessary precautionary measures. Make the most of those business contingency plan “work from home” arrangements and these malls’ free parking to stretch your legs a little.
Just because our country is suffering from a viral outbreak doesn’t mean our economy should suffer too.
