Don Don Donki Opens New Outlet At Downtown East On 15 Apr

Update (15 Apr, 10.50am): Don Don Donki has officially opened its Downtown East outlet at 10am on Thursday (15 Apr 2021).

The closure of the Don Don Donki sweet potato ‘factory’ at Changi Airport broke many Easties’ hearts, but things are finally looking up. After much excitement over a new outlet at Downtown East, the official opening day has finally arrived.


Signs show Don Don Donki outlet opening at Downtown East

While boarded up stores are often sad indicators of closure, these signs at Downtown East tell a different story.

Telling visitors to “come hang out soon”, the Don Don Donki mascot Donpen invites everyone to keep an eye on the area.


And we all know what that means — a proper Don Don Donki store is finally coming to the East.

New store next to McDonald’s

According to Facebook user Ms Eng, the new store is located where the old food court was, right next to the McDonald’s outlet.

Judging from the video, the store looks set to be a rather large one, so we’re hoping that it’ll offer Don Don Donki’s popular range of fresh produce.

Of course, not forgetting their piping hot, Japanese sweet potatoes that are to die for.

With this being the Japanese brand’s first outlet in the East, Easties can finally rejoice.

No need to travel all the way to town or any other location to get their favourite Japanese products anymore.

The Changi Airport outlet closure isn’t such a sad thing anymore when there’s a new and likely bigger store to look forward to.
