South Korean convenience store emart24 abruptly closes all S’pore outlets

Popular South Korean convenience store Emart24 closed all Singapore outlets

South Korean convenience chain Emart24 has abruptly closed all three of its outlets in Singapore.

In a Facebook post by Singapore Atrium Sale on Monday (18 March), the Emart24 outlet at NEX mall was shown to be closed — sparking questions about the chain’s closure.

The South Korean chain first hit Singapore in late 2022.

Their second outlet at NEX mall opened a day later, and their third store in Margaret Market opened its doors in July 2023.

Singaporeans were excited by the arrival of the talked-about convenience chain, ready-to-purchase Korean delights like snacks and drinks.

Emart24 also offered a variety of Korean favourites including Jajangmyeon and toppings to go with them.
