133 FairPrice Outlets Will Be Open On CNY Day 1
During Chinese New Year (CNY), many businesses would close for a few days to give their staff the time to celebrate the festive period with their loved ones.
But on the off chance you didn’t manage to get enough goodies for your visitors, there’s no need to panic.
This year, 133 FairPrice outlets will extend their opening hours during CNY Eve on 31 Jan and CNY Day 1 on 1 Feb.
Amongst these outlets, 33 will open 24/7 throughout the 2 days as well.

Plan ahead for CNY festivities to avoid crowds
Kudos to FairPrice and their staff for their tireless work and keeping stores open so we can stock up on necessities.
Crowds typically flood supermarkets for last-minute buys before the festive season.
So even as we prepare for CNY, try to visit supermarkets during off-peak timings to avoid crowds and stay safe.
