Respondents enjoy convenience & variety
Doreen Tan, 27, told MS News that she enjoys the accessibility of FairPrice.
“You literally can’t escape,” she said with a laugh.
Because of the accessibility, it’s easy to rack up NTUC membership points if you’re a regular shopper.
She also cited the variety of its supermarkets — FairPrice also has Finest and Xtra outlets around Singapore that offer a different variety.
For example, FairPrice Finest has brand products you wouldn’t find at other supermarkets.
Meanwhile, FairPrice Xtra also includes electronic products as well as clothing.
“You know exactly what to expect when you go into these various stores,” she noted.
Gerald Koh, 29, also liked FairPrice as it’s the closest supermarket to his place that accepts credit cards.
He also enjoys some unique features at FairPrice Finest Woodleigh, such as Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee and The Bakehaus.
Other FairPrice supermarkets even have gelato bars for the family to enjoy.
Sheng Siong also has fans
34-year-old Josephine Loo is a fan of Sheng Siong as she finds that the prices are lower as compared to FairPrice.
This is even though there are fewer Sheng Siong outlets.
Similarly, 60-year-old Nancy Neo, who visits her nearby Sheng Siong outlet at least twice a week, feels she gets better deals there.
“The cost of living is getting higher these days, so any discounts are appreciated,” she said.
