GRUB To Leave Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park Due To Non-Renewal Of Lease
Tucked away amid the lush greenery Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park are several cosy eateries that allow you to dine with a scenic view.
One of the more familiar names amongst them is GRUB, a burger bistro operating at the park for 9 long years.
On Sunday (26 Sep), GRUB announced that their lease at the famed neighbourhood park would not be renewed next year.
The bistro will close its doors for good and move out by Jan 2022.
Grub to leave Bishan Park after 9 years
According to the post, Grub shared that they received the crushing news that their lease at Bishan Park will not be renewed next year.
They will have to move out of the location that they’ve called home for the past 9 years by Jan 2022.
GRUB said that after building the place up from an empty patch of land and serving the community for almost a decade, they are still coming to terms with the shock of the news.
Future plans uncertain
Despite this setback, the GRUB team trusts that even as this door closes, there are plans in store for them.
They are still uncertain what these plans may be but the team said they are now actively searching for new locations.
Above all, they prioritise their crew and make sure everyone is taken care of, especially due to the short timeline they were given to move out of the space.
GRUB thanks the community
As GRUB prepares to leave the park, they also thanked the community they have been part of for so long.
They shared that to be able to do so has been their joy and pleasure.
Concluding their post, GRUB invited their patrons to come and have a meal with them before their departure in January.
They added that seeing their patrons again will mean a lot to their crew. The team then signed off with sadness, but also with hope.
